Aalto University starts using BREAK PRO Break Exercise Program 1.4.2020  

During remote working and studying it is essential to take care of ergonomics and break exercise. Break Pro application includes short, invigorating break exercise videos with custom timing for office workers. The videos have been shot in front of beautiful and sunny Finnish coastal views. The application contains a total of 108 extremely diverse break exercise videos for the whole body. One video contains 2–3 break exercises.

The program launches the break exercise session at the times set by the user or by selecting regular intervals of 30, 45, 60, 90 or 120 minutes and with the selected language (Finnish/Swedish/English).
