Repetitive, redundant, over and over many times and again stress injuries in law departments

I have heard some instances of lawyers and others in law departments developing symptoms like carpal tunnel syndrome from their repetitive use of their computer’s mouse. I also notice more ergonomic keyboards, of the wavy kind or of the kind with wrist supporters. Along with those physical aids there are a proliferation of different mouse devices, all of which reduce the stress that the old style mice caused.

The subtle and wide ranging incursion of technology into law departments creeps on, often unobserved (See my post of April 23, 2006 on secretary ratios declining.).
