Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Comfort at Your Computer] is an excellent resource for anyone who uses a computer. True to its title, the book shows the reader in clear and easy to understand steps how to use a computer in comfort. Dr. Linden adroitly synthesizes knowledge from his physical education background...This is an excellent book for people at risk for computer stress and for the clinicians who treat them. It functions both as a resources book and as a self-help text. It should also be of interest to companies whose workers use computers."

-Physical Therapy, December 1996

Synopsis:

With a goal of preventing injury, Comfort at Your Computer teaches an awareness of potentially harmful positions and shows how to achieve proper sitting posture and correct breathing for pain-free computing. Readers will learn exercises to prevent strain, such as a five-second movement break to do at a desk or a 20-minute stretching session for home.
