    Repetitive strain injury gadgets: Healthy Hints software


    Healthy Hints software is a computer programme that helps to prevent repetitive strain injury, caused by prolonged periods of working in front of a computer.

    What is repetitive strain injury?

    Repetitive strain injury is a condition where pain and discomfort occurs in an area of the body which has done repetitive tasks on a regular or prolonged basis.

    Office workers are particularly susceptible to this type of workplace injury because they spend many hours in front of their computers doing the same tasks. Common tasks, such as repeatedly clicking a mouse, staring at a screen for hours, or generally having a poor posture at your desk, can all lead to pain and discomfort in your wrists, neck, shoulders, and back, as well as other body parts.

    How does Healthy Hints software work?

    When working at a computer it can be easy to lose track of the hours you have spent staring at the screen and sitting in the same position. Healthy Hints allows you to set your own break settings, and then monitors your computer activity to check that you are taking those breaks. If the programme finds that you are skipping breaks, it will prompt you with a reminder.

    One of the benefits of this type of software is that it allows you to set your own break periods to a pattern that suits you. Using a computer programme such as Healthy Hints can therefore greatly reduce your chances of suffering an injury at work, particularly a repetitive strain injury.
