En plus des risques reliés aux CEM, une mauvaise utilisation de la tablette et du smartphone peut soumettre la vision, la nuque, les épaules, le dos et les poignets à de grandes tensions musculaires, etc.

Vous pensiez qu’une fois votre tablette en mode avion,  toutes ses antennes éteintes, branchée sur câble ethernet et un HARApad en-dessous vous étiez sortis du bois?  Et bien il reste les problèmes de posture.

Difficile d’avoir une bonne posture en utilisant pendant plusieurs heures par jours ces outils portables.  Tout Ergothérapeute va privilégier un poste de travail ergonomique avec ordinateur plutôt qu’une tablette ou smartphone quand le travail consiste à travailler des heures devant l’écran à lire et écrire.

Travailler sur tablette: quelques conseils ergonomiques bien utiles:

« La première leçon importante à retenir est qu’il faut réduire au maximum l’utilisation de la tablette pour les tâches auxquelles elle ne se prête pas. »

La Lipoatrophie une blessure bien réelle causée selon toute évidence par: https://grossessequebec.wordpress.com/2015/04/26/lipoatrophie-semi-circulaire/

  • The Washington Post:“The human head weighs about a dozen pounds. But as the neck bends forward and down, the weight on the cervical spine begins to increase. At a 15-degree angle, this weight is about 27 pounds, at 30 degrees it’s 40 pounds, at 45 degrees it’s 49 pounds, and at 60 degrees it’s 60 pounds.”“Can’t grasp the significance of 60 pounds? Imagine carrying an 8-year-old around your neck several hours per day. Smartphone users spend an average of two to four hours per day hunched over, reading e-mails, sending texts or checking social media sites. That’s 700 to 1,400 hours per year people are putting stress on their spines, according to the research. And high-schoolers might be the worst. They could conceivably spend an additional 5,000 hours in this position, Hansraj said.” read more… http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/11/20/text-neck-is-becoming-an-epidemic-and-could-wreck-your-spine/
  • Harvard School of Public Health:“People worldwide have been buying up tablet computers—small, thin devices such as Apple’s iPad–in droves, partly because of their ease of use and portability. However, little is known about the potential for tablet users to experience the same kinds of ergonomic issues that have afflicted desktop computer users for decades, such as head, neck, and wrist pain.”“Now, in an article published in Work: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment, and Rehabilitation, on January 15, 2012, Harvard School of Public Health researchers have begun quantifying the ways in which a person’s posture, and also the design of the tablet and its case, affect comfort—evidence that will help companies develop new ergonomic guidelines as tablets become more common in the workplace.” read more…


  • Gotta Be Mobile:“The iPad is an incredibly popular gadget, selling more than 15 million last quarter. It turns out that the millions of iPads in our hands can put a strain on our shoulders, necks and backs — in addition to your wallet.”“In a recent study by Microsoft and the US Department of Environmental Health, researchers found that tablet users have a higher potential for ”neck and shoulder discomfort” versus using a notebook or a desktop computer.” read more…


  • Digital Trends:“Now that tablet devices like the Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and Amazon Kindle Fire are becoming commonplace in everyday society, researchers have started examining some of the possible ergonomic impacts of these devices. After all, almost every other technological gizmo and device that has become ubiquitous in society seems to have an impact on our bodies, from desktop computer users suffering carpal tunnel syndrome and circulation problems to gamers and ”Generation Text” experiencing thumb and wrist injuries.”“Before then, centuries of people wore down their bodies on telephone and telegraph gear, industrial machinery, looms, and countless other devices. Why should tablets be any different?” read more…


  • Working Well Resources:“I’ve been noticing iPad advertisements all over town. I see iPads on billboards, ads on my computer and on television. Notice how the ads don’t show people sitting and using the iPad.”“They show people’s laps and legs and then a close up the iPad. Hmm, why hide the necks and shoulders of iPad users? My guess, because sitting hunched over a small but relatively heavy iPad makes people look pretty uncomfortable.” read more…


  • The ErgoLab:”I can remember when I started out in the professional world, my father gave me some advice, in his words, ”In business there are 3 things you NEVER discuss” (for fear of offending or alienating with anyone with a differing point-of-view); 1. Religion, 2. Sex, 3. Politics””Well….after our blog post 2 days ago on ERGOLAB’s concerns with the ergonomic issues of the Apple iPad, I am nominating another topic that is not open to discussion or questioning. 4. Apple (and anything having to do Apple, it’s products, leadership etc)” read more…


  • Ergonomics Made Easy:“Do you love your iPad? This new technology seems to stir a wide variety of emotion, both positive and negative. There are tremendous advantages to the bigger size of the iPad for watching movies, or reading an e-Book. But it also has some challenges for comfortable, ergonomic use, if you are not careful. Here are a few tips for using your iPad without muscle strain and/or discomfort.”“Don’t let this little device replace your main computer. It was designed to be flexible for short periods of time, but was never intended to be used for eight hours a day, editing spreadsheets or writing documentation.” read more…


  • The Ergo Lab:“Beyond my personal realization that the Apple iPad doesn’t seem to have a place and purpose in my own life, our ERGOLAB team has some deeper concerns with the ERGONOMIC implications of the product. We already know that laptops can create significant Ergonomic challenges without tricking the tool out with accessories; docking station, keyboard, keyboard tray, monitor, monitor arm and wireless mouse.”“Once we have pimped out our laptop with Ergonomic accessories, the configuration must be adjusted (ideally by a trained Ergonomist) to ensure neutral body postures and avoid injury. WHEW…exhausting.” read more…


  • Teach Thought:“We’ve been hearing for years how smartphone technology causes (insert scary sounding ailment here). The same with living under power lines, standing too close to the microwave, and eating lead paint.”“The long-term impact of such phenomena are unclear, but what is absolutely certain is that ergonomics matter. Neck strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, cysts, and other trouble aren’t just bothersome, but can be entirely debilitating. For students growing up with iPads in their laps and smartphones glued to the palms of their hands, this is worth understanding.” read more…
