Health problems using computers
After hours sitting on the computer at the labs, my neck starts to ache. I thought it was due to pressure and stress for example java. I know you have to sit comfortably in front of the computer having the monitor aligned to your eye sight. But I also found out that there have been many case of severe muscle aches in the different part of the body. Wrist and hand problems are common with computers. For example, 'floating' your hand over the mouse for long periods leads to strain on the ligaments in the back of the hand and the wrist. Also health problems may occur as a result of high repetition of hand movements, forceful typing, or having bent wrists whilst using the keyboard.
I asked people in the computer labs if they experienced any problems for example the atmosphere. They said the atmosphere is really bad when lots of people are in the labs at once. Also its hot and sweaty and very distracting. Also, some chair are very uncomfortable. The cs staff should do something about his.
