  • What Free Ergo Equipment Do You Need?
    If there's a piece of ergonomic equipment you need that's not too expensive, tell us what it is and perhaps we can provide it for promotional purposes. Frankly, it's the cheapest form of advertising possible, so don't be surprised if you get what you need. And mention it to other folks when they matter-of-factly say, "oh yeh, I've had this pain..."

From Jack Bellis...

When a physical therapist performed tests on me that my surgeon didn't before or after the operation on my ulnar nerve and my symptoms returned in a few weeks, I decided that someone had to tell the story. With my therapist, Suparna Damany, I've written a book on the subject, entitled "(Amazon) It's Not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: RSI Theory & Therapy for Computer Professionals." In the book and on this web site is what I learned about RSI, without embellishment or false promises, and with hard details not just accolades from other patients.
