Hi-tech problems

There has recently been some criticism of a proposal to issue councillors with iPads. I wonder if our borough councillors are aware of a warning that using iPads can cause neck and finger injuries? According to one newspaper, doctors are reporting a increasing number of repetitive strain injuries and muscle problems.

The main problems are aches in the hand while using them, finger pain while swiping the screen and knee problems, as homes may contain inadequate furniture to prop them on.
