Here's the latest article from the Ergonomics site at BellaOnline.com.

Laptop Ergonomics
Laptop computers have changed the way we do business. In spite of the benefits, portable computers increase our risk of developing repetitive strain injuries. Here are some ergonomic strategies to reduce your risk of injury and pain.

A good shoulder stretch -

Place the right hand on the left shoulder. Then place the left hand behind the right elbow and gently push the right hand as if you are reaching for an object behind you. Hold for 20 seconds. Repeat on the other side.
Tip - you can modify this stretch by slightly changing the angle of the push either up or down behind your back.

And a good neck stretch -

Start in good posture and let your head tip to one side bringing your ear down to your shoulder. Hold for 20 seconds. Then, holding the head tilt, slightly change the position as if you were looking up at the ceiling. Hold for 20 seconds. Now slightly change the position as if you were looking down at the floor. Hold for 20 seconds. Repeat to the other side.
