Abstract

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) negatively impacts the health and productivity of individuals and<br>corporations. In 2006 the Bureau of Labor and Statistics reported that Repetitive Strain Injuries accounted for<br>30% of total workplace injuries and illnesses in America. RSI burdens American employers with annual costs as<br>high as twenty billion dollars [2]. Many companies operate internal programs that attempt to mitigate the risk of<br>RSI to improve the health and well being of their employees. Existing corporate programs typically focus on<br>physical workstation set up and mechanisms that assist workers to take breaks at regular intervals. These<br>strategies can be successful but they require active participation from workers to be effective and they do not<br>examine one of the fundamental activities users perform while sitting at a computer, which is interacting with<br>computer software.
