Reminds you to take periodic breaks from your projects.
MacBreakZ is a sophisticated Personal Ergonomic Assistant designed to promote healthy and productive computer use. It offers a unique way of acquiring ergonomic skills that can save you a lot of discomfort, and shield you from serious health and career-threatening disorders.
MacBreakZ features sophisticated keyboard and mouse monitoring (without invading your privacy) that allows it to react to the way you are using your computer. What's more MacBreakZ provides you with instant feedback on how you are doing and thus lets you find out more about your work practices. Based on your actual keyboard and mouse use and the time you have spent in front of the screen, MacBreakZ suggests rest and microbreaks at appropriate intervals. MacBreakZ includes a set of 30 fully illustrated stretching exercises that are designed to reduce muscular tension, improve posture and strengthen appropriate muscle groups. It also features dozens of great ergonomic tips.
MacBreakZ adapts to how and where you work. A sophisticated setup assistant makes sure that you start off with a configuration that suits you and your workplace. An extensive array of preferences allow you to customize everything from how activity is measured to the way information is presented on the screen. And it isn't rude, and doesn't interrupt you in the middle of something important. Through its innovative interface using transparency and sound, it keeps you informed without stealing your focus and gives you plenty of warning before a break is due and even then respectfully waits until you have stopped working.
