On the disc there are 30 exercises of three minutes on average. These can be done discreetly on the chair. The stretching exercises make muscles and tendons longer so that ones becomes more supple. Every single muscle in the body is practised, including the eye muscles. These exercises enhance the relaxation process. This is achieved by the loosening of the muscles, by belly breathing and by relaxing music in the background. During the installation of the programme a clock is installed at the same time. After e.g. working for one hour the computer tells the user that it might be beneficial to do one of the exercises. The users can then choose one of the thirty exercises. Are his neck and shoulders troubling him most, he might prefer doing exercises that reduce that problem. This enables the user to do the exercises regularly. The pictures and the introduction of the exercises make sure, that the exercises are done correctly. The programme was realised in cooperation with an osteopath, a physiotherapist and a sports doctor.
