The biggest problems for people with arthritis using computers face are thought to be the hands and wrists. But Michael Milicia, OT/L, a clinical specialist in industrial rehabilitation at Cleveland Clinic, is just as concerned about other areas of the body. The computer-related complaints I hear most often from arthritis patients are about the shoulder, back, and neck, he says. Before addressing stiff fingers and sore wrists, I look at how they are sitting, where their monitor is positioned, and where their keyboard and mouse are relative to their bodies. Then we can suggest devices and peripherals that can make using desktop, laptop, and tablet computers a lot less painful and a lot more productive.
