Workrave - Open Source Software for prevention of RSI

Recently, one of my friends told me of Workrave, an open-source software, that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). I have seen various softwares of the same type, but none of them were open-source.

I checked out the features of this software. They currently have support on both Windows and the Linux platform. The software has some really neat, cool features such as prompts for regular breaks, regular rests, regular exercises etc. It also mentions some of important exercises to be performed to prevent RSI.

Having seen many of my friends suffer from this really frustrating injury, owing to the nature of job that we perform (sitting for 8 hours in front of a computer and just typing away), I feel software such as these can really help out. Of course, one has to be sincere in following the instructions that the software keeps popping on to the screen time and again. Also, this is open-source software. So, if any of you have some free time, then you could use it to contribute to this software. At least, the fact that you are contributing for a software, which has more of a humanitarian feel to it, should be incentive enough.

Let me know if any one else knows of somthing similar - it's worth mentioning about them.

Adios !
