Crippling dynamic forces are indicated by the arrows.  Because these children's bones are soft (not matured, un-calcified), they have a
lower Material Creep threshold force tolerance level. This means it doesn't take a large force to cause their fingers to bend and twist
under shock loading and constant pressure. Example: children's soft (un-calcified) bones may start to deform (become bent and
twisted) with 1 pound of torsional force repeatably applied (shock loading, mini-traumas) to the mechanical stops of the knuckles.

With adults harder calcified fingers it may take 15 pounds of force before the bone mass starts to yield, deform, and cause arthritis.

All games and controllers cause mini-traumas that attack the health and well being of our children's knuckles and bone mass,
because of the gripping, re-gripping during the playing process.  Additionally, the controller gripping surface is off parallel to the
natural mechanical design of the knuckle. Therefore, each time a child grasps the controller with their white knuckle gripping, a
destructive torsional (twisting) shock load is immediately delivered to their small un-calcified knuckles and bone mass, which
accumulates and results in the deformities identified in this web page.

The most destructive process in children's playing the games is when the build in vibration of the controller turns on.  The vibration is
deep and pulsating.  On the Sony controller there are two vibration sources.  One for deep and the other for lighter surface pulsations.
These are built to enhance the "feel" of the simulation of driving a race car, etc.
