Abstract

As people use computing devices more and more-not only desktops and laptops but also smart phones and tablets-related health risks also increase. Two of the most common and severe issues related to computer work are (1) the computer vision syndrome (CVS), symptoms include eye fatigue, headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision and (2) a too steep head flexion angle often referred to as "Text-Neck" leading to headaches and in extreme cases to spinal insures. According to medical research, users should blink often and in regular intervals (2-5 seconds) to prevent eye fatigue, dry eyes and ultimately the computer vision syndrome. To prevent "Text Neck", related work suggests that the user's head should not have a flexion angle of larger than 60° for over a minute.
