El uso de dispositivos móviles para ocio o trabajo puede aportarte grandes beneficios siempre que adoptes hábitos saludables al utilizarlos, como una postura correcta, descansos regulares y un correcto ajuste del equipo.
Siempre que te sea posible, es aconsejable:
√ Si usas el portátil en el sofá:
• Hacer descansos más frecuentes porque no es la mejor postura para la espalda.
• Procurar tener la espalda erguida y apoyada sobre un cojín.
√ Para aliviar la tensión muscular de las cervicales:
• Utilizar una silla que te permita tener la espalda recta formando 90 grados con
los muslos.
• Relajar el cuello y mantenerlo alineado con la espalda.
• Situar la parte superior de la pantalla a la altura de los ojos.
√ Para aliviar la tensión muscular de los brazos:
