WorkSafe: New RSI Prevention
Binary Logic has developed new RSI
prevention software, workSafe, to assist employers to manage Repetitive Strain Injuries
(rsi), whilst protecting their staff while working at the computer. The software
integrates and supports statutory Health and Safety legislation and helps sustain best
working practice of the keyboard and mouse.
Bournemouth, UK (PRWEB) February 15,
2004--The software monitors work patterns and decides when a break from repetitive
keyboard or mouse action is required. Calculations tuned to the human body measure strain,
based on current and previous computer usage. Whilst clever underneath, the software is
simple to use, with only three slider settings to be set by each user.
During enforced breaks at the computer,
workSafe shows exercise movies with descriptive text to ease physical and mental strain. A
variety of safeTips appear on-screen when the user becomes under
keyboard/mouse pressure, giving many ergonomic suggestions.
Binary Logic has modelled current medical
opinions to a real-time analysis engine within the software creating a measure
of human strain.
Research shows that with well chosen
recovery time, the algorithm is remarkably efficient at tracking your recovery during rest
periods. This is where workSafe supersedes time-out based systems currently on the market
as it can accurately register recovery during many short and long breaks.
Richness and versatility of settings
accommodates all members of the computer workforce within the companys Health and
Safety Agreement. Breaks and other events are time and date stamped in the systems
Event Log. Health and Safety managers can also set the system to receive related automated
reports from users.
workSafe is multi-lingual, currently in
English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
Compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 98, Me, 2000, NT4, XP and 2003.
