Yahoo News reports more people are showing up in emergency rooms with computer-related injuries, common causes are tripping over computer wires or getting hit on the head by falling equipment.
That increase has not been slight: From 1994 to 2006, injuries caused by people tripping over computer wires or getting hit by falling equipment rose from about 1,300 a year to 9,300 a year, an increase of 732 percent nationwide.
Children under the age of 5 had the highest injury rate. The leading cause of injury for small children, and for adults over 60, was tripping or falling over computer equipment.
But while most injuries were to the extremities such as the arms or legs, young children were five times more likely than other age groups to sustain a head injury.
