The China Daily has recently posted an article about a plague washing over Hong Kong, 'iPhone Syndrome'. Apparently this syndrome is spreading all across Hong Kong with sufferers being as young as 15 years old. Symptoms’ are caused by the presumed addiction to iPhone's. The dangerous posture associated with a Smartphone user has become detrimental to their body. Sitting with the neck and shoulders slouched, head down is known as hyper-flexion, or more recently referred to as tech-neck. An overuse of these muscles can lead to many degenerative diseases, and cause permanent damage to tendons and nerves. The constant pressure on wrists from holding the phone along with the unnatural movements of typing with the thumbs can cause the joints to become stiff and tight, leading to a lot of pain. The thumbs can be so severely damaged that it may require physiotherapy, or even surgery to help ease the pain. There have been many studies carried out from 2004-2008 claiming that 38% total and 20% of Hong Kong is addicted to the internet, and their Smartphone’s. A city that has 6.8 million 2.5G and 3G mobile subscribers and 7 million people will require more studies to prove their claim.
