Automatic Clicking, Break and Stretch Reminders, Voice Recognition
There are different types of software tools that have ergonomic benefits. They can eliminate mouse clicks, remind you to take breaks or to perform stretches, reduce or eliminate typing, and record macros to automate repetitive tasks. The benefits create a healthier and safer workplace, reduce fatigue, discomfort, and risk of injury such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Automatic Clicking Software
This type of software solution eliminates the need to click the mouse buttons. By eliminating or reducing daily, painful repetitive clicking, it may significantly reduce the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). It is a great solution for those mouse users at risk, already in pain, or injured.
To become aware of the strain caused by clicking do the following simple test: while clicking or double-clicking on this button here
watch the strain on the muscles and tendons near the elbow and through the finger you use to click. Now think about how many times per day you click the mouse buttons! Thousands of times!
Break Reminders and Stretch Reminders
These types of ergonomic programs remind users to take periodic breaks during work. Work pacing and frequent mini-breaks are an important part in preventing injury or during recovery from RSI. Stretch reminder software suggests or allows the user to chose a set of stretches during the breaks.
Voice Recognition Software
Voice recognition software allows the user to dictacte and edit text in most programs. It turns speech into text but also allows you to control your desktop or applications. Other voice recognition software has been developed for programmers with repetitive strain injury (RSI). It lets programmers dictate code in a more natural way and write clean code without having to use their keyboard.
Macro Recording Software
Software that records keystrokes, mouse clicks and movements to automate repetitive tasks.
Nib works by intelligently monitoring your cursor moves on the screen. You place the cursor on the location where you want a mouse click to be performed. After a small delay (user defines) the software will perform the click for you.
