  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.

  5. Studies of many thousands of people using WorkPace stretch break and stand up app have shown that a user with average WorkPace settings of a 5 minute break after 55 mins computer use will get an average of 1 stretch break warning a day. Note that this is an average – you will get more stretch breaks on some days, less on others. Users with more strict settings will get more stretch breaks.

  6. Studies of many thousands of people using WorkPace have shown that a user with average micropause settings of 8 seconds after 6 mins computer use will get an average of 4-5 micropauses a day (only 40 seconds!). Note that this is an average – you will get more of these mini stretch breaks on some days, less on others. Users with more strict settings will get more micropauses – e.g. if your settings are a 20 second micropause after 4 mins you may get 20 or more micropauses a day.

  7. How often you see a WorkPace stretch break reminder will depend upon both your WorkPace settings and how intensively you are using your computer. If you regularly take stretch breaks of 4 – 5 mins away from the computer WorkPace will detect this stretching at work and reset the stretch break app timer. This means that with a stretch break interval of say 45 mins you may still be able to work an eight-hour day at the computer without seeing more than 1 or 2 reminders from the take a break app. Some people whose computer work is naturally interrupted by lots of stretch breaks hardly ever see a B
  8. Exactly how often micropauses occur will obviously depend on your WorkPace settings. However, even with the same settings there can be a tremendous variation and how often micropauses are prompted. Many people will only see a few micropauses an hour at most. This is because WorkPace detects natural pauses in your and resets the micropause timer. However, in times when you are working very intensively, perhaps towards a deadline, you may be taking less natural breaks, meaning that you will be interrupted more often by WorkPace.
