MacBreakZ is a ergonomic diagnostic app designed to prevent fatigue and repetition injuries commonly found when working with a keyboard and mouse. The update boasts an easier transition to the break routine for first time users. According to is pleased to announce the release of version 3.4 of "MacBreakZ!".

MacBreakZ! is a personal ergonomic assistant which monitors keyboard and mouse activity and helps computer users structure their computer use in a healthy manner, preventing computer-related injuries from developing.

Most of the new features in version 3.4 are designed to make the tool more accessible to first time users.

It can be difficult for new users to get comfortable with taking regular breaks, because this inevitably means that they need to change their work practices.

This is why we have decided to provide longer break intervals for people to get used to taking regular breaks in a progressive manner. A little prevention is often better than none at all.

New features:

  • new adaptation level recommended in the wizard
  • larger range of possible break intervals
  • new default times
  • fixed a bug that meant that MacBreakZ! did not switch back to the correct application
  • after the "Start Break Now" button was pressed
