Solution for Repetitive Stress Injuries

Use barcode scanning for mobile workforce to reduce PDA injuries. Thumb RSI (Repetitive Stress Injuries) are well known for heavy and frequent computer keyboard users. This issue extends now to mobile devices, especially since most times the thumbs are used to input ALL data on the device (unlike keyboards where the keys occur across all of the fingers). Barcode scanning allows input of many digits with a single button push (or no button push at all when using hands-free scanning). This means using a barcode scanner makes it possible to significantly reduce personal injuries related to data entry, especially for mobile applications.

OPN-2004 replaces the popular OPN-2003 and 2001.
