Computers are everywhere in the home these days -- the office, the kid's room, maybe even on the kitchen table.
And that, according to new research, has led to more people showing up in emergency rooms with computer-related injuries.
That increase has not been slight: From 1994 to 2006, injuries caused by people tripping over computer wires or getting hit by falling equipment rose from about 1,300 a year to 9,300 a year, an increase of 732 percent nationwide.
Children under the age of 5 had the highest injury rate. The leading cause of injury for small children, and for adults over 60, was tripping or falling over computer equipment.
