Abstract: Misfingering by focal dystonia in PC workers not only leads to decreases of their productivity, but also to sombre perspectives of their health, due to prolonged periods of illness. Focal dystonia includes disturbed muscle tension balances, leading to painful, impaired and often aberrant motions. It is hypothesized, that the disturbed muscle tension balance which characterizes focal dystonias, does include a predominance of either the extrinsic or the intrinsic hand and finger muscle activities.
