  6. Hi Sarah, The Wellnomics recommendations are based upon how much time you use your mouse (or keyboard) and how much activity you do with it, including how often you take breaks. There are a great many different designs of mouse and keyboard available to suit different users and which users may find more comfortable to use based upon their individual preferences. However, there is not enough published research suggesting that an ergonomic mouse or keyboard by themselves can significantly offset the health risks due to long periods of constrained posture and muscle tension involved in usi

  10. Approximately 10-20kb per day, or 3-4MB per year.
  11. Data on when and how often the user adjusts their sit-stand desk, the height of the desk, and how long they spend standing or sitting at the desk during the day. No personal information is stored – only a one-way hash based upon the user’s domain & username.
  12. Whenever a higher level break is due soon any lower-level breaks that are coming up are suspended. This is designed to avoid too much disruption of your work by giving you a micro-pause immediately followed by break, or a break immediately followed by your daily limit warning. When you ignore a daily limit warning the daily limit is then extended by an amount relative to the size of your daily limit — normally about 30 minutes to 1 hr. The problem is that if a break is due but your daily limit is about to be displayed again shortly then WorkPace will decide to reset the break counter and wait
  13. WorkPace take a break app tries to detect natural pauses and breaks in your work and thus avoid warning you unnecessarily. This is intended to help reduce the level of disruption of your work by WorkPace which many people can find irritating. For a micropause to be effective you must relax your muscles to allow restoration of blood flow and reduction of fatigue build up. This normally means letting go of the mouse or taking your hands away from the computer keyboard and dropping them at your sides, or in your lap to relax. Hopefully, when WorkPace prompts you to take a micro-pause this is what
  14. For micropauses you are defined as using the keyboard or mouse if you have made any action within the last 5 secs. The chances are that even if there is 5 seconds between two successive actions you will still have been holding your hands over the keyboard, or gripping the mouse between these two actions. If there is longer than 5 seconds between actions then it is more likely that you let go of the mouse, or relaxed your hands and arms is higher. (See How does WorkPace take a break app measure computer (and mouse) usage? for more on why the time spent in static positions is the more important
  15. Calculating your actual time using the computer workstation — i.e. the keyboard or mouse is not quite as straightforward as might first appear. Firstly why are we trying to measure computer workstation usage? As far as the WorkPace take a break app is concerned, the major ergonomics in the workplace risk factors for RSI/WMSD problems from computer workstation overuse are muscle tension and constrained posture, not so much just the actions of typing, clicking, and moving the mouse. Most of us are not high-speed copy typists and thus it is not the number of keystrokes or mouse clicks which
  16. According to office ergonomic guidelines “Time using the Computer” is counted as any time in which there was mouse or keyboard activity within the last 30 seconds. Time using the Mouse is counted as any time in which there was a mouse click or mouse movement within the last 5 seconds. Time using the computer Keyboard is counted as any time in which there was keypress within the last 5 seconds. Why different thresholds for computer usage and mouse/keyboard usage? According to office ergonomics guidelines, computer usage has a higher threshold because we are wanting to measure your time spent at
  17. Your break must have been too short according to office ergonomic guidelines. The WorkPace take a break app will reset the stretch break timer if you naturally take a break of longer than 80% of your Break Duration setting. This means if your normal WorkPace Break is set to 5 mins you must take a break of 4mins or more and WorkPace will accept your Break. To see if your Break has reset check the Break timer on the Status Window.
