Abstract

Repetitive strain injury is a common occupational hazard but has not been previously reported in a child. With the escalating use of computers both in the home for recreational purposes and in schools for teaching, the possible incidence of hand and wrist problems may need to be highlighted. Perhaps "hand care" instruction should be implemented in UK schools as prophylaxis.
