Technology Misuse, Overuse Can Hurt

February 10, 2009

I was interviewed for the article Technology Misuse, Overuse Can Hurt by Dr. Mildred L. Culp.

Serafine Lilien, ergonomist at, conducts ergonomic assessments evolving from her overuse of technology. As a graphic designer, she’d spend 70 percent to 80 percent of her 8- to-12-hour workdays using a mouse and hitting the space bar. Carpal tunnel syndrome, diagnosed in 1992, is still with her. “Learning how to type in neutral positions completely saved me,” she remarks.

“Remember to take breaks,” she says, “Time goes by, and people forget there’s a body to take care of.”
