RSIGuard is a break reminder software available for free to all Berkeley Lab Mac and PC users. It is customizable and includes a ‘smart timer’ that is based on the amount of typing and mousing. It can provide cues for those times you get in the zone and forget to move or change positions often enough. Learn more about using RSIGuard.
