Dentists, ergonomics, RSI, and CTS

Editorial Director Marita Kritzinger wrote me an email about a group of "crafts people" that have the potential to develop RSI and or CTS. I've not written about dentists and carpal tunnel syndrome a single time.

"Dear Helge, I recently came across your CTS blog – it’s a wonderful resource!! I am the editorial director of a new global information portal for dentists called Dental Learning Hub One of our projects for DLHub is a digital supplement for dentists and one of the sections focuses on ergonomics. Since dentists are quite prone to developing RSIs and CTS in particular and was wondering if you’d be interested to contribute a short article on the latest medical information on CTS and how dentists can seek treatment and look after their hands better."

Helge: Veijo Lesonen, Mediracer is a natural starting point for having a testing for those who are vulnerable. This could also be a theme for a lecture at some meetings were dentists are participating.

I’d be happy to include a link to your blog or any websites you are affiliated with on this topic. The other articles we already have for this section are all written by members of the European Society for Dental Ergonomics and I think your input would make a very good combination of content for our readers.

Helge: We'll dig into practical examples and write more about this subject within a few days.

Should you be interested to take part, I’d be happy to discuss this with you further. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards


Helge: Sure, we are willing to take part in this.
