Health Concerns of Using Technology
A Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is an injury or disorder of the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. Technology-based RSI's include tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon due to repeated motion or stress of that tendon
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is inflammation of the nerve that connects the forearm to the palm of the wrist.
Other Physical Risks
Behavioral Health Risks
People develop a technology addiction when technology consumes their whole life. People suffering from
feel distressed when deprived of technology.
Repetitive Strain Injuries
Hardware Theft and Vandalism
Any computer are at risk of hardware theft and vandalism. It is easier to steal or vandalize mobile users. There are some ways to protect against hardware theft and vandalism, such as locking your doors or windows, cables locking to the computers, installing security or tracking apps. Some mobile computers have a fingerprint reader which only unlocks to the specific fingerprint.
Ways To Prevent Technological Health Risks
Take frequent breaks
have proper lighting
Attend therapy and support groups for technology addiction

The National Hurricane Center has powerful computers that can create models to help determine a storm's path. The Computer use the storm's current strength , central pressure and weather the storm will travel onto land. The computer's models are not completely accurate but they help predict possible outcomes so people can leave the projected area. Computers also help the Meteorologist predict weather around the world daily. Since technology has advanced Meteorologist can now predict weather further ahead in the future.
There are many types of hardware failure.
-electrical power problems
-errors in programs or apps
Under-voltage occurs when the power supply drops more than 5%
-brownout is temporary power loss
- Blackout is total power loss
Over-voltage or power surge occurs when the power supply increases more than 5%
Surge protector- has electrical components that help fight against power surges.
uninterruptible power supply (UPS)- is a device that contains surge protection circuits and one or more batteries that can provide power during temporary or complete power loss
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS
) is a technology-related condition that affects eyesight. It causes sore, itching, tired, or burning eyes; and blurred vision or double vision from watching a screen too long.
Prolonged computer uses can also cause headache and a sore neck.
Improper posture could muscle pain and emotional fatigue
