MacBreakZ 4.8.6 improves Menu Bar item feedback

October 28, 2008 in Software (E)

[] Luxembourg City, Luxembourg - has announced MacBreakZ 4.8.6. Version 4.8.6 improves activity feedback via the application's menu bar item. MacBreakZ monitors the user's keyboard and mouse activity and provides feedback on how likely the current activity level is to cause repetitive strain injuries. The menu bar icon changes color from green (safe), to amber (warning), red (dangerous) and finally flashing red when the activity level exceeds safe levels. In this manner users become more aware of dangerous usage patterns and can learn to avoid them.

MacBreakZ is a sophisticated Personal Ergonomic Assistant designed to promote healthy and productive computer use. It uses a sophisticated activity monitor to minimize disruptions by ensuring that the user's activity level justifies a stretch, rest or micro-break.
