Tablet arms and shoulder syndrome or iPad arms and shoulder syndrome is a group of symptoms by any non specific pains in arms and shoulder caused by some tablet computer operations. This syndrome was firstly proposed by Gede Pardianto and Bramasto Rahman Prasojo (2011). This pain usually suffers on left arm and shoulder of right handed persons. In some cases this syndrome suffers combined with eye strain and followed by discomfort in head and neck. Some heavy-weight tablet users may experience additional symptoms such as pain in the arms and shoulders. Left arm is more suffering because the left hand (usually in right handed person) holds the tablet, and the touch screen is operated by right hand. This pain is reduced when using the tablet is stopped and the pain could re-strike by re-operate tablet intensely. This pain is common in adults by age over 40 years. [1]
