Monitoring your Activity Level

Rest breaks are most effective when they are taken at regular intervals depending on how much you actually work.

This is why ergonomix monitors your actual work on the computer and triggers breaks according to you actual activity level.

ergonomix automatically detects when you take unprompted breaks and adapts its break schedule accordingly.

Preparing you for your Rest Break

Nobody likes to be interrupted in the middle of working. Unfortunately it is during those periods of long, concentrated work that we do the most damage to our body.

ergonomix helps you by gently reminding you to take that rest break.

When you are prompted to take a break, you have the option to delay for a few minutes.

If you know that you cannot trust yourself to take the break, you can ask ergonomix to enforce the break for you.

Making the Best of your Rest Break

The best way of giving your body an opportunity to recover from the static posture it is forced into all day, is to perform a few easy stretches.

ergonomix provides a whole series of easy-to-follow and highly effective stretching exercises that you can perform right at your desk (or anywhere else you want to).

Once you have stretched a bit you should go and move around for a moment.


Our hands, wrists and fingers are particularly sensitive to repetitive strain injuries when we continually use input devices at high intensity.

ergonomix is designed to recognize these high risk situations and remind us to take short, so called "micropauses". These are short 2-30 second breaks.

Taking microbreaks has been shown to be highly effective in prevent RSI.
