This section is meant as a one-stop resource centre for ergonomic
and healthcare products for our clients suffering from Musculoskeletal
Disorders. Some products can be directly ordered online using an
international credit card and I would recommend using the product
during the free trial period before making payment. Many of the
products are offered at discounted prices especially for my patients
(if ordered through this website).
1. Stretch Break Software
I consider this one of the most sophisticated, versatile and user
friendly break reminder software currently available. The important
features of Stretch Break (usually lacking in freeware) include:
- Users can control how long the animations pause at their "stretch
- They may also select a less intrusive Time-to-Stretch reminder.
This option reduces the size of the reminder and moves it from
the center to the lower right corner of the screen.
- Includes a Smart Timer Option that modifies the time between
breaks based on keyboard and mouse activity.
- It also allows users total control over the sequence of the
stretches that appear on the screen.
- Contains guidelines for setting up an ergonomically correct
workstation as well as a series of hints on how to avoid injuries
when using your computer, e.g., how to substitute keyboard strokes
for mouse movements.
Price: Our clients can purchase Stretch Break at a special price
of $15 (USD),
against the usual selling price of $45
(USD). First download

2. Back Buddy, Lumbar Roll, Versatile
Back buddy is an adjustable and portable support for the
lower back and can be applied on any chair, sofa or car seat. It
includes an anatomically designed moulded foam lumbar cushion with
a built-in tempered wire spring, which provides postural correction
by reproducing the curve of the lower back. Back Buddy has undergone
an extensive trial
with the Indian Air Force under a project "Backache among Chetak
Pilots". The Indian Air Force endorses this product.
Lumbar Roll is a cylindrical moulded foam cushion with a
built-in tempered wire spring, designed to give added lumbar support
in a car seat or office chair. An adjustable strap lets users secure
the roll to the chair or car seat.
Versatile seat is a triangular wedge cushion (tapered 12
degrees) that is used to sit upon. The slight downward incline promotes
proper posture of lumbar spine, unloads the tailbone (coccyx), improves
blood circulation in the legs and allows the computer operator to
easily slide his/her thighs under the keyboard/mouse tray. Both
the items can be used together.
Contoured Pillow is designed to provide support to the head,
neck and spine and keep it aligned with the rest of the body. It
is made from double density polyurethane moulded foam.
