RSI is the most commonly known computer-related injury; it stands for Repetitive Strain Injury. Most things about RSI are unknown, but one thing is certain: it is better to prevent RSI than to cure it. RSI is an injury which is not easily cured, and even if it can be cured it takes a very long time. Probably the most important thing to reduce or prevent RSI is to take breaks regularly. RSI-Shield investigates how many breaks you must have and makes sure you will take them. Almost every aspect of the breaks and the program's 'intelligence' is customizable. Furthermore, you can use RSI-Shield to actively fight against RSI by letting RSI-Shield click the mouse-buttons automatically for you, or by using the unique Macro-technology. If you use that, RSI-Shield can even type text for you automatically, or control any application and the Internet. Another important thing is to have the correct working posture. In the RSI-Shield information section you can find pictures with instructions for a correct working posture. Exercises are also important; RSI-Shield can show you animated exercises with instructions during a break. Most people with RSI have more problems working with the mouse than working with the keyboard. RSI-Shield can be fully controlled by keyboard. In the information section you will also find all sorts of shortcut keys to control Windows. Furthermore RSI-Shield keeps up extensive statistics, which can be presented both numerical and graphical. You can see for example how many hours you have worked and how much you have used the keyboard and mouse (statistics can be protected with a password).
