The Official Google Blog has a post titled Avoiding RSI that is worth reading. It is not about search, it is not a launch of a new beta, and it is not about a Mars base. It is about your health, how easy it is to hurt yourself, how it happens, and what you can do to avoid Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI).
We’re not designed to remain as sedentary or perform the fine motor movements for the long uninterrupted hours that we have to do in so many of our jobs.
And that is what I do almost every day: seat, type at the keyboard, scroll the mouse, stare at the screen.
The post gives you an intuition of the problem, facts and links to dig, and few tips to start you up. Dig it.
