The Cambridge Evening News has an interview with Steve Fisher, the chairman of RSI Action, a national RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) charity based in the United Kingdom. RSI Action aims to improve the prevention and relief of sickness, hardship and distress amongst those suffering within the UK from Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) conditions.
Mr. Fisher was an engineer who was medically retired with RSI three years ago, and has since been involved in setting up RSI Action and travelling the world to talk to leading experts on the condition. He hopes to raise more than £100,000 for RSI Action’s activities over the next three years, with a long-term goal of creating an RSI treatment centre in the UK.
Mr. Fisher says that “RSI is a very serious problem in the workplace today. We are raising the profile of the problem but it is also a public health issue – with youngsters leading a more sedentary lifestyle and using iPods, games and mobile phones, the problem is becoming more prolific.”
“We need to understand the problems to move forward,” he said. “We have a big job to do.”
