Aimed at preventing RSI. Warns you to take a break with dialog box and
sound. Includes a list of exercises to do during breaks, and information
on configuring your workstation in an ergonomic manner. Price: $59;
quantity discounts and site licenses. The DOS product is bought in from
another company, apparently; not sure how equivalent this is to the Mac
version.

The Mac version got a good review in Desktop Publisher Magazine (Feb
1991). Good marketing stuff with useful 2-page summaries of RSI problems
and solutions, with references.
