Health is an important topic to all of us. In the age of technological progress it is very important to take care of health issues before they happen. I share information that helped me and my family to prevent such problems as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other kind of physical pains associated with the use of computers.
Internet, Photoshop, Word, Excel, publisher, Google, Email, online store - today these words are familiar to most people in the world. In the west we spent most of our time in front of the computer, this is how we do our work, take part in communication and create opportunities. It is truly a remarkable change that took place in a relatively short time. Yet we were not ready for the health risks that come with the life in front of computer screen. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of them, and it became a problem for many computer users: from programmers to auto cad professionals - it is a problem for children and for adults. What to do about it? As always where there is a problem there is also a solution. Bamboo tablet to the rescue!
Why Bamboo tablet? It is relatively inexpensive in comparison to many other similar products on the market, at the time when I bought it, the cost was between $60-$70 dollars for a Bamboo Touch, it is one of the products by a very well-known company Wacom. There are a number of options to choose from: bamboo touch allows to use a slim flat tablet with a touch of a hand allowing for an easy navigation across the screen, without ever having to click. A simple tap on the pad is just like a single click, a double tap on the pad creates the same action as a double-click on a regular mouse. It is also easy to enlarge web pages and PDF documents, to open or to close documents , to navigate Internet back and forth between the pages. Most importantly it allows for an easy navigation without the “click”. It feels quite natural and intuitive and it does not heat up while in use. I am very happy with my tablet and I recommend it to anyone who would like to avoid health problems that could be caused by extensive use of the mouse.
Bamboo comes in different varieties: bamboo touch, bamboo touch and pen, bamboo pen. I believe it is compatible with any computer PC or Mac, that has a USB port.
Try it, experience an easier way to navigate the web, stay healthy and keep your kids safe by teaching them the proper way of using the computer from the beginning.
