As part of the campus ergonomics program, Stretch Break is now available for SJSU
We all know we're not supposed to remain seated for hours on end, and that we can get more done by taking frequent short breaks to keep our bodies fresh and our minds alert. Stretch Break reminds computer users to stand up, walk a bit, or stretch at regular intervals.
Stretch Break's interface is intuitive, and users should have no trouble configuring the program to their liking, but a 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 active, an animated figure demonstrates each stretch, moving automatically to the next one. 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 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 is compatible with Windows operating systems only. This is an optional program that University employees may consider installing on their work and/or home computer.
Please visit the Ergonomics webpage and click the Stretch Break Software button to start the installation process. You will be prompted to create an IT help desk ticket using your SJSU email address and password. Within 48 hours of completing the IT help desk ticket, your local IT rep will contact you for installation assistance. If you wish to download the software on your home computer, you can use the link provided via email.
Please contact Michaux Burchard with any questions about Stretch Break or the Ergonomic program. We would love to get your feedback on the process of software installation as well as the software itself.
Enjoy your stretches!
