Trying to establish the evidence base for what has been posted by the eSports and gaming experts to see what ground has been covered. It looks as though a few years back that Game Informer had a full blown Gamer Health Week!
Topics covered included:
- Hearing Loss
- A gamers diet
- Wrist health (e.g. carpal tunnel)
- Vision Health
- Healthy sleeping habits
Take a look at their blogs and some of the chats, not bad advice: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/tags/health+week/default.aspx
This commenter didn’t seem to believe the hype though:
what a stupid news post gi.you were all mad at someone for making a health report just like this.and i cant even understand why sleeping on a comfortable couch would be harmful.i played fallout 3 till 2 in the morning and i feel FI….
They do seem a little aggressive though…maybe some more sleep in a comfy bed will help.
