Pausit – the pause program
Pausit is a pause program that all employees can download to their computer.
Pausit offers pause exercises during the working day. It is a computer-based tool which presents exercises that prevent stiffness and pain in the back, shoulders, head and neck. The exercises also reduce stress and improve blood circulation.
You choose how often and how long you want to exercise and your own way of doing it. You can either choose a mix of exercises for areas such as the neck, back, shoulders and shoulder blades, or exercises for a specific area such as the back.
The program offers over 100 exercises developed in consultation with physiotherapists, ergonomists and orthopaedic specialists. The program reminds you when it is time to exercise and provides statistics on how much you have exercised.

Customise your settings
If you want to optimise your use of Pausit, you can visit the Pausit website and obtain assistance with settings.
Select a manual for PC or Mac under "Support", at the bottom left of the page. At the top right of the page, you can select the language in which you want to read the instructions.
When you do the exercises, it is a good idea to set them up as standing exercises. This is a way to give blood circulation an extra boost for the entire body.
Try to break up long sedentary periods by taking pauses. The body is made for movement. Taking a break at least once an hour is recommended.
