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

physical therapist, it goes where few other sources do...drawing an explanation
for computer-related RSI that is comprehensive enough to explain the common
denominators, and specific enough to recommend distinct therapies.
