Many of the keyboard and technical staff of a University with a large component of research activity, have presented to the Health Service with discomfort in the neck, shoulders and upper limb. A description of the University organization is offered to suggest possible reasons for the high incidence. Strategies that were undertaken to confront the problem are presented. The advantages of prevention rather than intervention are yet again demonstrated. © 1986, Australian Physiotherapy Association. All rights reserved.
