Physical Problems Associated with Computer Use and Implemented Ergonomic Measures.
Alexander, Melody A.
Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, v36 n4 p189-202 Fall 1994
Survey responses from 404 (of 523) office support personnel showed that most used computers 3-6 hours per day and had experienced vision or musculoskeletal problems, but most did not see a doctor, take regular breaks, do stretching exercises, or discuss problems with their supervisors. Many were not aware of ergonomic features that could help, and few ergonomic design changes had been made. (SK)
