"Healthy Computing" expert available to discuss Ergonomics Hearings taking place May 8 - 12 in the nation's capital

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 8, 2000--- Dr. Erik Peper, director of San Francisco State University's Institute for Holistic Healing Studies, has conducted and published extensive research on how various factors, including ergonomics, affect the health of computer users.

Peper, who has a doctoral degree in psychology from Union Graduate School, is co-author of the recently published Healthy Computing With Muscle Biofeedback. In his book, Peper includes research that shows that ergonomic changes alone do not address the problems associated with unhealthy computing.

Peper is president of the Biofeedback Foundation of Europe and director of Work Solutions USA, a company that helps businesses develop an integrated program (including ergonomics, stress-management, and biofeedback training) for avoiding computer related injuries.

Erik Peper can be reached at (415) 338-7683 or (510) 653-8737 or by e-mail at
