Telephone Accessories

Telephone use while performing other activities has been the cause of shoulder and neck problems. A frequent mistake is to place the telephone receiver between the head and shoulder while freeing up the hand to write, type, or perform some other task.

Where additional activities are performed while on the telephone, headsets should be used to reduce neck and shoulder stress. Padded phone rests also help, but headsets are generally better.

Some office workers have also been observed with a "death grip" on the telephone receiver and a bent wrist. A minimum of force should be used in holding the telephone and all activities should be performed with as neutral a wrist posture as possible.
