Carpus Tunnel Syndrome is a condition of pain occurring in the wrist caused due to stress resultant from repeated actions involving the hand and fingers with lack of application of ergonometric conditions. The two most common instances of work leading to Carpel Tunnel Syndrome are typing and lifting weight. The solution to avoid Carpus Tunnel Syndrome is complying with ergonomic requirements while designing articles and incorporating the requirements of physical ergonomics while at work.

Carpus Tunnel Syndrome is a condition of pain and swelling to the fingers and wrist caused due to stress resultant from poor application of physical ergonomics. Several factors such as typing, lifting heavy weights, or doing an activity continuously cause stress to fingers and wrists. Carpus Tunnel Syndrome is curable by medication, but the application of ergonomic concepts that would help remove such stress and enable humans optimize their work using fingers and wrists enables one to preempt this condition.

[...] Methods The two major areas of work associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are typing and lifting weights. Application of ergonomic principles helps avoid the occurrence of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in both these areas. The scientific data available with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) indicates that job tasks that involve highly repetitive manual acts or specific wrist postures lead to incidents of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. (Cole 2006) Four major factors determine the extent of strain the wrist tissues suffers. [...]
