Workrave, application that helps you avoid carpal tunnel syndrome

The carpal tunnel syndrome It is a problem that afflicts many people, those of us who are all day with computers know that we have a great risk of contracting this due to the position of the hand and grimace.

On the other hand we have the RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury), which, as its name says, is a damage generated by repetitive effort, it is used in many areas, but we who work all day with a mouse in hand can perfectly apply it to our area .

These injuries can be avoided or mitigated with a little goodwill, ergonomics, and tools like Workrave, which helps you take breaks and lessen the chances of it happening to us. It is available for both Windows and Linux and is completely free.

With Workrave we can define to take breaks every so often, and it also has a guide with exercises for us to do when we are at breaks.

And now my question is: Do you do something to take care of these problems or do you just work and don't worry? If they do something to take care of themselves, it would be very good if they tell us so we can have a world of non-disabled geeks: P.
