Break Reminder Software

(UCLA Employees Only)


UCLA Ergonomics now offers CtrlWORK: break reminder software and personal efficiency solution for the work place. This simple, yet powerful tool will help increase your productivity and comfort while using your computer throughout the day. As the demands for our time continue to grow, we tend to take fewer rest breaks. However, studies show that taking small breaks and refreshers at regular intervals throughout our workday greatly improves our efficiency and overall health.

The UCLA ergonomics team encourages you to install & utilize this software to assist you in maintaining your rest breaks. CtrlWORK will analyze your work patterns and then provide you with prompts as to when you should take quick physical or mental refreshers, as well as direct you to perform small but effective stretches to reduce your probability of discomfort and keeping you energized throughout the day.
