What are the risks of using improper ergonomics while using a graphics tablet?

Ergonomics is the science of designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely. When it comes to using a graphics tablet, proper ergonomics is essential for avoiding strain, discomfort, and even injury. Unfortunately, improper ergonomics can lead to a variety of risks, including:

1. Musculoskeletal Disorders

Using a graphics tablet with improper ergonomics can lead to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). MSDs are conditions that affect the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Common MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and epicondylitis. These conditions can cause pain, swelling, numbness, and tingling, and can lead to long-term disability.

2. Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are caused by performing the same motion over and over again. Common RSIs include tendonitis, bursitis, and tenosynovitis. These conditions can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness, and can lead to long-term disability.

3. Eye Strain

Using a graphics tablet with improper ergonomics can lead to eye strain. Eye strain is caused by prolonged use of a computer screen. Symptoms of eye strain include headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and fatigue. Eye strain can lead to long-term vision problems.
