About the Author:

Deborah Quilter lectures, conducts RSI consultations, and writes a monthly ergonomics column for Computer Currents. Her articles have appeared in national magazines, including Good Housekeeping and Fitness. She is the coauthor of Repetitive Strain Injury: a Computer User?s Guise (with Emil Pascarelli, M.D.) and lives in New York City. Robert E. Markinson, M.D., author of the foreword, is a celebrated hand surgeon, Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery at the University of California- San Francisco, and cofounder of the UCSF?s Health Program for Performing Artists.

From Booklist:

Use of the hands is of crucial importance in daily life. This book explores the physical, psychological, and economic realities of long-term repetitive-strain injury (RSI) to the upper extremity, a topic on which Quilter conducts workshops and has published previously. A foreword by a hand surgeon claims that RSI is reaching epidemic proportions, due to "poor tool design and the increasingly repetitive nature of many jobs," particularly computer work. Since injury happens over months and years, it is often difficult to diagnose and treat, let alone find a practitioner able to help. Quilter charts the stages of injury, the often arduous paths to recovery, medical treatments available, self-help techniques (including relaxation and stress relief), proper posture and daily exercise, and how to protect the hands during home and work tasks. Ergonomic tips for common work-related situations, such as computer use, handwriting, and playing musical instruments, are covered. The author concludes with guidance on changing or creating careers.
