Abstract

The wrist is an ellipsoidal type (condyloid) of articulation synovial is permitting movements at two axes.
The anatomical name of the joint is the radio-carpal joint [1-5].It presents a sinuous opposing. The concave
proximal articular surface is formed by the lower end of the radius and the articular disc of the inferior
radio-ulnar joint. The reciprocally convex distal articular surface is formed by the scaphoid, lunate and
triquetral bones from lateral to the medial side. The joint capsule surrounds the wrist and is attached to the
distal ends of the radius and ulna and proximal rows of carpals excluding the pisiform. Strong ligaments
strengthen and stabilize the joint from the sides, and on the ventral and dorsal surfaces. Repeated episodes
of mechanical stress can cause the event of repetitive motion injuries or overuse injuries, which when
including poor posture and biomechanics put much strain on the joints. They usually develop slowly over
an extended period of your time. Wrists are one of the foremost common sites of repetitive motion injury.
Therefore this research was designed to study the effect of laptop usage among physiotherapists(students
and teachers). This study may give awareness to the individual to avoid or minimize the overuse of laptops
and therefore the complications by breaking bad habits, practicing recommended/approved posture while
using the laptop, and modulating the planning of the keyboards. Due to covid 19 era, the use of laptops
and computer has significantly increased among students and teachers of different universities for teaching
purposes. Therefore the study was designed to study the impact of laptop use on the wrist in students and
Teachers duringcovid 19.
Objective: To find the impact of laptop use on the wrist in Physiotherapist during covid 19
