Editors' Review

Stretch Break is a fun and easy-to-use program that will help computer-weary users feel refreshed and avoid repetitive motion injuries. The many customizable options allow each user to create a stretching regime that is right for them.

Stretch Break's interface is very intuitive, and users should have no trouble configuring the program to their liking, but a well-written built-in Help file includes plenty of information about the program's functions. The Options menu contains everything within a single screen, making it easy to navigate. When the program is in action, an animated figure demonstrates each stretch, moving automatically to the next one. (We admit that the figures aren't the most attractive people we've ever seen, but they do their job.) It's easy to skip to the next stretch if needed. Stretch Break's features are all useful, and we have a hard time thinking of anything it lacks. The program contains 36 different stretching exercises, and users can set the number of stretches per break and select which exercises they want to use. Music can be played during or between stretches--11 relaxing .wav files are included--or turned off completely. A variety of schedules and alerts are available, so users can customize their stretching routine. Optional ergonomic tips can be shown after each stretch break to help users work more comfortably and safely.

Stretch Break has a 10-day trial limitation. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
