Some people ditch the stationary console game systems like the PS4 or Xbox One in favor of a more portable way to play video games, which is the PC. They can take their laptops with them anywhere they go, connect to Wifi and play their favorite video games. One side effect of using a PC rather than a console is the possibility of getting Carpal Tunnel. Popular PC gaming app Steam has made a group specifically used to combat Carpal Tunnel, properly called Carpal Tunnel Prevention.
The group sends out regular alarms reminding to people get up after an x amount of time and stretch. Not only do they send out those reminders, they also provide resources that will help people identify symptoms of Carpal Tunnel. They also recommend exercises for your hands and fingers so that your digits can remain in good shape while you click and type away during your games.
Whether you play PC games, console games or handheld games, you’re using your hands and fingers. Those hands and fingers are the tools gamers use to play their games. All players need to be aware of what Carpal Tunnel is and what they can do to prevent it.
If you click on the official group page and you click announcements, you will come to a playlist of videos, each with the title “HOURLY ALERT — Get up, Stretch, Move!” They are all the same video. The video is from the channel Dr Levi Harrison. A lot of his videos are made for gamers, all of which cover mostly what good hand exercises people can do. He also has videos on good eye exercises for gamers and how to combat shoulder pain for gamers. His chanvel is self-titled and you could take a look at all of his videos on his official YouTube channel.
