Due to rapid increase in the number of computer users among working population in the last 20 years, there is a dramatic increase in work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). In scientific studies, it has been demonstrated that computer users are at increased risk of various painful and disabling musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) because of physical and psychosocial risk factors. Neck and upper extremities are more commonly affected than the lower and upper back in computer users. WMSDs have unfavorable economic outcomes, resulting from reduced productivity, high working days loss and increased claim costs.
