Description:

AntiRSI is a program for Mac OS X that helps prevent RSI (repetitive strain injury) and other computer related stress. It does so by forcing you to take regular breaks, yet without getting in the way. It also detects natural breaks so it won't force too many breaks on you.

Keeps the pain at bay - I recommend this app to everyone I know who struggles with wrist or hand pain from using the computer. Personally, I've been using the older free version of this app for months now and it has been instrumental in reducing my pain. I'm happy I got the chance to support the developer here on the App Store.

Doesn't work well with multiple displays - MacBook Pro w/ Lion. I often attach/detach my MacBook to/from an external monitor. AntiRSI often doesn't show the break window until I terminate & restart it.

Great for more than RSI - I spend all day at the computer, and I use this app as a reminder to take the short breaks I need to keep my head clear. Usually I set it at 3 minutes once an hour, but when I have a particularly tedious task, I'll shorten it to avoid glazing over. It helps me keep my productivity up and stress levels down.
