Abstract:

Computer usage is an indispensible part of human being lives. Therefore in this study we are analyzing the prevalence rate of posture and ergonomic disorders and abnormality of computer users. this research was historical and descriptive that was performed on the 160 students who had three years of experience working with computers. Data was collected via researcher questionnaire with high levels of validity and reliabilityand was analyzed by SPSS version 21. Findings from the research showed that 85 %of complication neck hyperlordosis, 90% of lowered shoulders, 70 percent of kyphosis pectoral, 65% posterior tilt of pelvic, 40% of genovarum and genovalgum, 30% complication ankle deviation that were common among students. neck hyperlordosis, lowered shoulders and genovarum and genovalgum are the most posture and ergonomic disorders and abnormality of computer users that were came into being for lack of physical activity due to continuous exertion and neglecting principles of ergonomic during computer working
