Repetitive Strain Injury or RSI
Repetitive Strain Injury or RSI is possibly the No 1 cause of industrial injuries for office workers.
Whether you are looking for a preventative or rehabilitative aid, your wrists or knuckles are just starting to ache or you have been diagnosed with full blown Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), our ergonomics specialist centres, The RSI Shop and Adapt-IT have a wide range of products that can help.
"RSI" is a catch-all phrase or syndrome for work related Muscular Skeletal Disorders (MSD) incorporating several discrete conditions associated with activity-related arm pain such as tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tenosynovitis, golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis) and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).
Other terms by which it is commonly known are Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD), Occupational Overuse Syndrome, non-specific arm pain or Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD).
RSI is also used as an umbrella term for non-specific illnesses popularly referred to as Blackberry thumb, iPod finger, gamer's thumb (a slight swelling of the thumb caused by excessive use of a gamepad), Rubik's wrist or "cuber's thumb" (tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other ailments associated with repetitive use of a Rubik's Cube for speedcubing), "Stylus Finger" (swelling of the hand caused by repetitive use of mobile devices and mobile device testing.), Raver's Wrist, caused by repeated rotation of the hands for many hours (for example while holding glow sticks during a rave) and others.
