ABSTRACT
The authors comment on a study by Ijmker et al. which noted that reported daily duration of computer use was associated with distal upper extremity and neck-shoulder symptoms. They cite that before the publication of the report, there is only one study available in which computer use was ascertained with computer registration software. They note that this study is a significant addition to the literature that examines associations between computer work and musculoskeletal outcomes.
