“Screen slaves” risking their health
2:23pm Friday 22nd June 2012 in Health
People are risking their health by working on smartphones, tablets and laptops after they have left the office, according to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
It says people have become “screen slaves” and are often working while commuting or after they get home.
The society said poor posture in these environments could lead to back and neck pain.
An online survey, of 2,010 office workers by the Society found that nearly two-thirds of those questioned continued working outside office hours.
