The newest article from the Ergonomics site at is about
DeQuervain's Syndrome.

DeQuervain's Syndrome is a painful and limiting condition of the thumb tendons - and it can make you feel helpless. Almost everything we do except walk uses our thumbs, from buttoning a shirt to riding a bike, to opening a door. Modern life employes the thumb in more detailed and faster action tasks than in any other time.

Thumbs are getting painful and for many, the pain is severe enough to interfer with life.
