The following factors can increase the risk of RSI:

  • wrong work posture or technique;
  • prolonged static work posture or repetitive movements (staring, lack of movement, mouse clicking);
  • prolonged work under high work pressure;
  • prolonged slight tensioning of the muscles.

This reduces the circulation to the muscles and the arms and hinders the removal of waste substances, with the result of pain symptoms.
