)-- Ergo-Motion Consulting today released a new complimentary program online called Typing Tutor. It is a tool that teaches individuals to type in an efficient and ergonomic manner with a QWERTY keyboard.
This is a computer-dominated age. Computers are used in marketing, advertising, movie-making, etc. However, these computers are only useful if the user is capable. Every device is not without its dangers. The dangers with working on a computer are not apparent and not very immediate, but they are present. Carpal tunnel syndrome, neck strain and repetitive strain injuries are a few terms used when referring to these dangers. They refer to what can happen if techniques of using the computer are not properly learned and executed.
Typing Tutor is a free online tool to teach an efficient and ergonomic technique in keyboard stroking. It does so in a progressive manner, introducing 21 units – each consisting of 5 lessons. Typing Tutor provides statistics of wpm while typing so that improvements may be monitored, and it also keeps track of the amount of errors made. Typing tutor is not a program that needs to be downloaded, it is purely located online. It is embedded in the Ergo-Motion Consulting website and all that needs to be done is to visit http://typing.ergo-motion.com/
Everyone types; emails are typed, messages are typed and sent on facebook, instant messaging and twitter. It Is something that everyone does. Do it long enough with an improper technique and an injury could be imminent.
By increasing the words-per-minute (WPM) count, employees will increase their productivity in regards to the computer, and not only that but do it with a decreased risk of repetitive strain injuries. Repetitive strain injuries are ailments that occur after a long duration and usually occur with repetitive actions, such as typing.
