The U.S. Bureau of Statistics reported that 47% of all carpal tunnel operations are work-related due to the increase in computer use.

Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) in the workplace cost an average of $110 billion annually and contribute to the highest number of missed workdays.

For every $3 spent on workers compensation, $1 out of the $3 is spent on RSI. Other U.S. studies reported that the cost of back pain ranges between $50 to $100 billion a year. It is also responsible for 40% of all absenteeism in the workplace.
