Stedt, Joe D.
American Annals of the Deaf, v137 n1 p40-43 Mar 1992
In a survey concerning repetitive stress injury (RSI) and carpal tunnel syndrome, 87 percent of the 40 sign language interpreters reported that they had at some time experienced at least 2 symptoms associated with RSI, and most interpreters knew others with RSI problems. Data indicate that RSI is a severe problem among sign language interpreters. (Author/JDD)
