Sitting at a computer for hours on end can cause you to lose track of time. Whether your work is attention-grabbing or deadline-driven, you may not take as many breaks as you should. Download the free ‘Time Out – Break Reminders’ app for iOS devices and let the app remind you when it’s time for a healthy break to prevent injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Time Out offers a ‘Normal’ break and a ‘Micro’ break, giving you different ways to move and stretch your body. For the purposes of carpal tunnel syndrome prevention, you can remember to stretch your hands and wrists. The app places the power in your hands to configure the breaks for however long you have or want. You can even perform various functions before, during, or after a break.
