Nowadays, it seems that everyone has a smartphone. From 8-year-olds to 80-year-olds, everyone is constantly connected via their phones. But have you thought about how long-term use of your phone affects the shape of your hand?
People use their phones for work, fun, communication, games, etc. There seems to be nothing that these devices can’t do.
Everyone wants to get their hands on the latest and greatest phone, but there’s actually a weird reason why we should be careful about using the phone: change people’s hands.
The problem is called “pinky smartphone” syndrome
“Pinky smartphone” appears when your little finger has a blow near the first joint in the way you hold the phone. Look at your hands right now – do you notice any differences between the shapes of your little fingers?
This strange phenomenon happens when you hold the phone in the wrong way. So what is a “pinky smartphone”? Well, it’s your little finger, bent or bent, caused by the way you hold the phone in your hand.
Many people balance their smartphones on their little fingers to prevent their phones from shaking or falling out of their hands. Pick up your phone and hold it naturally. If you do this, you could be at risk of getting this syndrome.
People on Twitter began sharing photos with their hands, claiming that their phones bent their fingers. Rayna wrote, for example: “My little finger is visibly bent because of the way I hold the phone.”
Another Twitter user, Lucy, wrote: “I have a real defect on my iPhone. My finger has bent and will not straighten. I have to change the way I hold the phone. ” Another Twitter user, Haley, wrote: “My finger is bent because all I do is hold the phone in my hand all day.”
We all sit on phones so much these days that it’s not really so surprising that our bodies are starting to reflect overuse of the phone. Although it seems a little worrying, there do not seem to be any negative effects on people’s health, but only a matter of aesthetics.
