Break Reminder™

RSI Prevention, Micropause, Take a Break, Stretch and Exercise Reminder Computer Software

Increased Accuracy and Safety For Computer Users

Why?

  • Protect Yourself!
  • Protect Your Employees!

Main Break Reminder control form and Micropause / Break window.

Break Reminder reminds you to take Breaks and / or Micro pauses to your set times, including sensing when you have typed long enough.

Much cheaper than an RSI alternative!

RSI / OOS / MSD / CTS / CVS

OOS (Occupational Overuse Syndrome) is also known as RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury – USA) and MSD (Musculoskeletal Disorders – Europe). CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) and CVS (Computer vision syndrome) also are associated with computer use.

These injuries are becoming more and more common in today’s computer-intensive world. OOS, RSI, MSD, CTS, and CVS can become very painful and debilitating if not treated early.

With this in mind, the best cure is prevention. If injuries already exist, strict work methods are required to facilitate recovery after a visit to a naughty site.

Break Reminder is designed to both prevent and assist convalescence of these debilitating computer terminal associated conditions.

It has numerous other benefits also. Whilst we have many anecdotal reports of the value of this software, there is also research that supports the value this type of software provides to PC users.

Break Reminder has a small program interface that discretely runs in the background. It can monitor your computer use, and reminds (or can force) you to take a break to user-chosen settings.

“Sneaky stressor #1: Using your computer

Here’s what happens when you flick on your computer: “Your breathing rate goes up 30 percent, your blinking rate goes way down, and you tend to tighten your arms and shoulders without knowing it,” says Erik Peper, Ph.D., director of the Institute for Holistic Healing at San Francisco State University. 

Slash the stress: Change your body position every half hour or so simply standing while talking on the phone can improve bloodflow and ease muscle strain. 

Visit cheqsoft.com for low-cost software that will tell you to also take microbreaks quick pauses to close your eyes and flex your wrists.”

From “” Edited by Kate Dailey, Associate Editor, Men’s Health, August 2005, msn.com.

Customer Testimonials

“Break Reminder has saved me from RSI. I have been using it for over 2 years and together with a good mouse mat and keyboard, it has eradicated all symptoms. I have recommended it to all my family and friends. Well done and thank you.”  (Toby Beresford, Microaid.net, July 22 2003)  

This example recently advised to us summarizes other comments we have received.  Another example of user feedback: 

“Very well-designed, the heuristic’s really make it pop up at the right times, without being too aggressive or permissive”.  

Another example, this one independent and spontaneous academic opinion:      

“I have now been using your software on both my home and work computer in conjunction with Maltron keyboards and and trackball mice for a few months and have nothing but praise for your software. Being a research scientist I tried several free/Trialware software packages and have found yours to be undoubtedly the best. It is easy to use and strikes the correct fine balance of usefulness versus intrusiveness so as not to get in the way when a break cannot be taken. I have recommended it to most of the people here and it actually helps the entire work day not just protecting from RSI.  Looking forward to version 4!” (Dr N Martin, Curtin University, Western Australia. August 11 2004

And more…

“After years of dealing with work-related tendonitis, I credit your Break Reminder program with saving my arms and my career! It does just what I need it to do (force me to take breaks at regular intervals), without a lot of extraneous bells and whistles.” June 7 2005

“Been using Break Reminder for several years – looked for upgrade and thought it was time to pay up for all that benefit!!” July 24 2005

“Break Reminder has been great” … “One (user) reporting that it’s been the single biggest help in reducing the pains he’s getting, so 10 out of 10!” London Business School, September 19 2005

“I love this program! It has really helped with my RSI recovery.” University of Wisconsin Researcher, after 2 days of use, July 31 2006

“I swear by your product, and have been using it for sometime, here at work. I have steered colleagues to your product as well.”  (Corporate Customer, John Simon, Sociotelligence, Texas, April 14 2018)

Choosing a Software ClockHere is a checklist of some important considerations when choosing a clock:

  • Does the clock have a user friendly design using drag and drop?
  • Does the clock feature Groups of Time Zones?
  • How easily can you look up and select new Time Zones?
  • Can you easily rename the Time Zones to suit you?
  • Does the clock update Windows Time Zones?
  • Does the Clock tell you groups of times for any time, date and zone?
  • Does the clock have an update program in place?
  • Does the clock include a database of past present and future time zone rules?
  • What data does the clock use?  (Registry is not up to date with all time zones and is therefore not a good basis for a time zone clock.)
  • Does the clock generate meeting plans in a flash?

Testimonials

Here are some examples of customer feedback we have received for the earlier TimesOwn version:

“I found the places I wanted, edited the names to suit me and now they are always just a click away. Well done Cheqsoft!”

“I have tried three other World Clocks over the past 12 months, including TimesOwn, while the others have apparently, more to offer the consumer, I have finally come back and registered with you. Yours being the most user friendly. It tells me all I want to know re the time in cities I have contact with.   Thank you.”

“TimesOwn is going EXCELLENTLY for me, thank you! I am web editor for a children’s literature site with a chat room. We have chatsters from all over the world and a regular chat every Tuesday that overseas people cannot attend–because they’re mostly asleep!  So I’m planning a Worldwide Chat at a time here when people in Europe, Africa and Asia can attend. You can see how valuable TimesOwn has been for me in setting that up.  Thank you again, and THANK YOU for TimesOwn!”

“Where did you hear about TimesOwn?  Did an internet search for this type of software, found many, settled on this one for it’s ease of interface and use. What do you like about TimesOwn?  The interface is very efficient. Having all the locations that I need to do business with on a daily basis is perfect.”
