Editors' Review

Download.com staff
This feature-rich application prompts you to take breaks and offers useful tools to help you avoid repetitive strain injuries, but it will cost you some disk space. After questions about your computer habits, RSI-Shield quickly creates a break schedule for you. The intuitive interface presents several icons that include options to view schedule settings, usage graphs, and macros. The program is preset to disable your mouse and keyboard during breaks, but you can change these options and adjust break intervals and duration. RSI-Shield does more than simply prompt you to take a break. It offers exercises to help reduce upper body and eye strain with step-by-step instructions and an animated demonstration. RSI-Shield also has tools to create macros and use the keyboard in lieu of the mouse. Though some may be put off by the hefty 16MB of memory it requires, this comprehensive app can help any user avoid RSI and it offers a generous 60-day trial.
