Carpal tunnel syndrome is typically not caused by a sudden, isolated injury, but rather by repeated or habitual movements that gradually wear-down and cause the muscles on the thumb side of one's arms to atrophy and become unusable.

With ErgoSense, a user can get real-time tracking about which muscles are being strained and become made aware of specific changes that will minimize the repetitive impact on his or her muscles. Typically, these potential users at manufacturing jobs, clerical jobs, and other jobs requiring repetitive arm movements would not be made aware of the slow and progressive destruction of their muscles due to poor form or the like.

ErgoSense will give them the information they need and prevent the destructive effects of carpal tunnel syndrome in the future, vastly improving their quality of life.
