To prevent or to get rid ofpainful symptoms, computer users should take regular breaks from the computer. But it's easy to forget about these short breaks, and just as easy to ignore various reminders we may have set up. To force oneself to take a break from the computer and get a little rest, exercise, or snack, it is best to block the computer screen during that time.

UsefulRest will help you to protect health, and to prevent Computer Vision Syndrome and RSI (repetitive strain injury), which can take many forms, from headaches, neck pain, eye strain, red eyes etc.

With UsefulRest you have the flexibility to configure work and rest intervals as well as the degree of blocking and security levels. Your computer workday will be much more pleasant, comfortable, and healthy.
