Is that the pain associated with dipping into your wallet and raking out that much cash?
You sure it is iPad wrist?
Be careful how quickly you mock guys -I'm having treatment and had an occupational health referal for finger/wrist/arm/shoulder problems as a result of teaching ICT for over 20 years now.
First problems arose as a result of using a laptop on the original DFE pilot for the Laptops For Teachers scheme - I now never use the trackpad, always a mouse now because of the strain caused by the unnatural finger movements. Ditto I don't use a mouse/keyboard from the standing position, I always get the students to stand and I sit to use them. Physio also recommends not using a laptop on my knee for very long because of the bad posture it causes (and shoulder probs as a result!).She recommends siting at a table, better yet to use a proper PC!
Take the tips from me and look after yourselves, RSI type pain is no joke!
Spot on gg52. I think RSI could be an issue.
I got a iPad 2 on Saturday. Having spent far too much time messing about with my new "style statement", I found it uncofortable to hold. Basically, my left wrist was hurting. This is an iPad2 which is suposed to be lighter than the origina !
If only I were lefthanded !
