School Ergonomics Programs: Guidelines for ParentsWith the number of computers in classrooms increasing every day, many schools are beginning to institute ergonomics programs to show students, teachers, and parents how to reduce the risks of computer-related injuries. What follows is part of such an ergonomics program, in the form of guidelines that have been developed for the parents of school children, from the needs identified by a project with Blackwell Elementary School in Redmond, Washington. The guidelines have been included in the "Get Techfit" program developed by Diane Tien and her class at this school.
