    Repetitive strain injury gadgets: WorkPace software

    WorkPace software, developed by Wellnomics, is a computer programme that monitors the computer habits of office workers, including how regularly they take breaks. From the data gathered, WorkPace then provides personalised training, breaks and exercise reminders to workers, in order to help improve working habits and avoid injuries at work such as repetitive strain injury.

    What is repetitive strain injury?

    Repetitive strain injury is a condition where pain and other symptoms occur in an area of the body which has carried out repetitive tasks on a regular or prolonged basis. Office workers are particularly susceptible to this type of injury, because they spend many hours in front of their computers doing repetitive tasks.

    These repetitive tasks could be anything from repeatedly clicking a mouse, staring at a screen for hours, or generally having a poor posture at your desk. All of these work habits can adversely affect your wrists, neck, shoulders, and back, as well as other body parts.

    How can I prevent repetitive strain injury?

    Installing WorkPace software on your computer will remind you to take regular breaks, and also offer examples of stretches you can do at your desk to help prevent a personal injury at work.

    The developers behind WorkPace software also claim that it improves concentration and productivity, and leads to less time off due to injury and ill-health.

    What can I do if I am suffering from repetitive strain injury?

    Unfortunately, repetitive strain injury is still a relatively common work injury. If you are suffering from repetitive strain injury as a result of an accident in the workplace, then you may be entitled to compensation.
