RSI and Overuse Injury Association of the ACT, Inc online

We aim to help you cope with your RSI or overuse injury by providing information on every aspect of the condition, including treatments, compensation and the law, the latest medical research and managing everyday life.

We are a non-profit charity based in the ACT dedicated to supporting people in Australia with repetitive strain injuries (RSI) or occupational overuse syndrome (OOS). All donations are tax deductible.

Repetitive strain injuries, like tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and epicondylitis (tennis elbow) are very common in Australia today, and affect people in many occupations, including computer professionals, hairdressers, butchers, assembly-line workers, painters and other trades.
