Preventing Repetitive Strain Injury

If you have checked with your doctor (and we recommend that you do), you will know that one of the simplest and most frequent pieces of advice for reducing the risk of permanent injury and pain from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is to take regular breaks.

Unfortunately, as you have probably found out, it is also one of the hardest pieces of advice to follow.

You are too busy to notice until your wrist or arm begins to hurt. But by then it's too late. What you needed was a simple, discreet reminder when you tried to work too long without a break...

Did you know that...

According to Damany & Bellis, taking regular RSI prevention breaks is … the most universally agreed upon recommendation from all authorities on RSI . It also … might be the most significant and most challenging change to make to your work habits (op. cit. p175).

i.e. taking regular breaks helps prevent RSI, but it's also a lot easier said than done...

Albion StopNow! gives you the reminder you need to take that RSI prevention break. StopNow's reminder is designed to be:

  • Obvious to you, but not too obvious to anyone else so nobody need know if you have an RSI problem.
  • Mildly annoying (so that you actually stop working), but not so annoying that you have to quit the program if you need to use the computer in an emergency.
  • Appropriate for a work environment. No pesky pop-ups to capture your mouse or lose your keystrokes!
  • Adaptive to your work pattern: you'll never be reminded to take an unnecessary break.
