Tablet Revolution, Children and Ergonomics 

The digital revolution has already embarked upon our daily lives. Laptops, Tablets, smart phones have become part of our lifestyle. These gadgets are now being considered to create remarkable opportunities for enhanced student learning. Constant connectivity is seen as a precursor by the education departments in Australia to ensure students can access their learning resources both inside and outside the school environment. The Queensland department of education recently declared deploying 14000 tablets to schools in Queensland. A recent study, by Roy Morgan Research, concludes the percentage of tablet users in Australia, over the age of 14, has more than quadrupled from 7.2 percent in February 2011 to 33.5 percent in February 2013.

While advanced technology is producing these gadgets at an accelerated rate, making them smaller, faster and more advanced, very little thought has been given to the ergonomics behind their use. Prolonged use of tablets and improper posture can cause severe musco-skeletal issues in children as young as 4 year old, especially neck and wrist pains.

Using the tablets ergonomically at an early stage can actually bring great benefits among children if they adopt healthy habits like correct posture, regular breaks and a proper adjustment of equipment. One such equipment that can help is the tablet stand. Most of the tablet stands are designed ergonomically to help prevent or relive occupational work, classroom or home stresses or disorders such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Back, Neck & Shoulder Pain or vision care when using tablet devices.
