Micro break reminders for computer users

Wellnomics (WorkPace) is a fully interactive stretching reminder app which monitors your computer use and, when required, provides an on screen stretch reminder to the user to take a "micropause" to prevent any ergonomic issues or musculoskeletal injury from computer over use.
Exactly how often the micro break stretch reminders occur will depend on your WorkPace settings and your work practices. Even with the same stretching app settings there can be variation in how often micro-breaks are prompted. Many people will only see a few micro break reminders an hour to prevent ergonomic issues. This is because WorkPace detects natural pauses in your work and resets the micro pause timer. However, in times when you are working very intensively, perhaps towards a deadline, you may be taking less natural computer stretch breaks, meaning that you will be interrupted more often by WorkPace stretch break reminders.

All Wellnomics office ergonomics software apps are developed in accordance with industry accepted human factors and office ergonomics guidelines and international best practice.

Stretch Break reminders for computer users

Wellnomics (WorkPace) fully interactive ergonomics software monitors computer use and when required to prevent ergonomic issues it provides a reminder to the user to take a stretch break to allow muscles to relax and rejuvenate.

How often you see a WorkPace stretch break reminder will depend upon both your WorkPace stretch break app settings and how intensively you are using your computer. If you regularly take stretch breaks of 4 – 5 mins away from the computer WorkPace will detect this stretching at work and reset the stretch break app timer. This means that with a stretch break interval of say 45 mins you may still be able to work an eight-hour day at the computer without seeing more than 1 or 2 reminders from the take a break app. Some people whose computer work is naturally interrupted by lots of stretch breaks hardly ever see a Break. On the other hand, if you have a particularly intensive day on the computer during which you rarely stand or take a stretch break, then you will see far more stretch break reminder warnings than normal.
