“…a great program, ingeneously simple, yet highly effective. It works seemlessly with other software, so you can use it no matter what you're working on.”
“StretchWare could be the next best thing to Mom yelling at you to go play outside.”
“An electronic nudge for computer users…”
"StretchWare is one of the most significant inventions since the ergonomic keyboard!”
Sonja J. Presley
“I'm a HUGE fan of this program … I can really tell the difference in the month or two since my technical upgrade, when haven't had it on my machine. Although I still stretch, I'm not as reliable about remembering as the program makes me, nor do I do the array of stretches that I'd been doing when the program would remind me to stretch. It really works for me.”
“This is an excellent software package. I have been working in the IT industry for 25+ years - and sitting directly in front of a terminal for most of this time. Your product is priceless for making my days go easier. Plus, when I go home at night, I am noticeably more relaxed and energetic! Thanks, guys!”
“I recently got a copy of your book, Stretching in the Office, with the Stretchware software and I wanted you to know how much it has helped.
The book says to give the exercises a week or two to take effect, but they worked wonders on me THE VERY FIRST DAY!!! I couldn't believe how much better I felt after doing them that day.
I set the reminder for every half hour and couldn't believe how quickly 30 minutes went by when working. At first, I was tempted to skip them but since they take only a few seconds, I stuck with it and the results are fantastic.
The shoulder and neck sitffness that has plagued me for years has greatly reduced and my headaches are far less frequent.
I'm going to scour your website and look for other fitness tools. You have my eternal gratitude!”
“It was beneficial. I have a lower back problem so the lower back stretches helped me personally. But the program is a very innovative one which you should be commended on.
Maybe you could target medical facilities to help promote your program. People usually listen to doctors! I'm glad I did use this. Now I'm benefiting. Great! Thanks.”
“I thought I would just do the exercises on my own on a regular basis. However, without the reminder I haven't kept up with it.
I'm sure I felt better when I was doing the stretches. Just doing some stretches plus breathing deep was refreshing. I think it would be a good idea to market this to companies for network availability. Individuals could turn on the reminder if they wanted to. I believe all people who work at a keyboard all day long could benefit. Companies might see productivity benefits as well as health benefits.”
“It is a very good program and I have recommended it to many of my colleagues/co-workers/other company employees for use at work.
I want to thank you very much and will continue to recommend Stretchware to everyone I know. Part of my job is as computer support person so I come in contact with many people that need this program!”
“It reminded me to stretch, even if I didn't do all the stretches shown, just bringing awareness to my body at work and one or two stretches helped enormously. I have recommended and shared your web address with friends, family, colleagues and my massage therapist. I got the address from my Chiropractor, and your web addr is saved on my 'favorites' page. Awesome. You've got a great product.”
“I have chronic tension in my shoulders which is slowly improving and I the stretches definitely helped.”
“A colleague of mine, who happens to work in physical therapy and is a certified massage therapist, mentioned StretchWare to me and ‘sold’ me on the idea that its kind of exercises were a very good idea for folks who work at the same sorts of things.”
“It is helpful to have prompts at regular intervals to stretch. My time typing at the computer has increased greatly and I am starting to feel strain in my hands and forearms.”
“I do a lot of computer work and I liked that the program reminded me to get up, move around and stretch. I know that I should stretch and how to stretch, I don't take the time to do it and Stretchware reminded me to take a stretch break.
I am the Manager of Employee Health & Wellness and one of my responsibilities is the campus ergonomics program. We are looking for a product that we can provide to all of our employees to remind them to stretch and to education them about proper body mechanics and ergonomics in the workplace. We asked approximately 30 of our employees to try the program and give us feedback. These employees had all requested workstation ergonomic evaluations or had known shoulder, back and/or wrist problems. We received a very favorable response for your product.
I specifically liked the fact that you can set the intervals and the way in which you want the program to notify you to take a break. I also like the educational information included in the program. One of our employees was able to determine that her office chair was not adjusted properly and followed the instructions on the program to properly adjust her own chair. This program empowers employees to look at their own workstation and to adjust and arrange to fit their own needs and bodies.”
“I showed the book to my chiropractor and he liked the idea very much. I get so stiff when I forget to stop and stretch. I feel so much better when I stop to stretch.
I own a computerized sewing machine with an embroidery unit that hooks up to a computer. It comes with software to design your own embroideries. I also have software programs to design my own clothing patterns. I spend too much time on the computer playing with the software programs and ‘talking’ to my fellow sewers via email lists. So do my fellow sewers.
On one of my lists someone said that her back was bothering her so much from spending so much time on the computer that she went to a sports doctor who gave her some exercises to do which relieved her pain. I immediately told everybody to go download a trial of your program. I don't know how many did. Come to think of it, I should tell the Pfaff Pfriends list (a list for those with the fancy computerized sewing machine I use), it has 2,000+ people on it. I'll do that.”
