Repetitive strain injury. Typist suffering from repetitive strain injury (RSI) wearing a wrist brace. RSI causes pain and stiffness in the wrists and fingers as a result of repeated movements involved in tasks like typing. The best treatment is rest, although anti-inflammatory drugs may also be needed. The brace limits the wrists' movement, which in turn will limit the amount of damage caused.
