SmartBreak is a revolutionary ergonomics program that reminds you to take breaks when working on a PC for long hours. Unlike similar programs which remind you to take breaks at fixed intervals, SmartBreak actually monitors the way you spend time on a PC and then prompts you to rest at the appropriate time. This effectively means that you can spend more time in front of a PC with very efficient break time utilization.
Spending a great deal of time on a computer poses many health hazards. Two of the most common ones are Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) and Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). While the former causes eye strain, deterioration of eyesight and dry eyes, the later causes neck, back and wrist pains. While there are many conflicting theories as to how computers affect health, everyone agrees on one common fact that taking frequent breaks when using computers is the ultimate solution to tackle this problem.
SmartBreak is the only RSI prevention program that not just reminds you to take breaks but can also enforce users to take a break, which is especially useful for kids when combined with the child lock option.
What's New in this Release: Windows 8 support, ability to skip next break and other minor improvements
