Stretch Break for Kids

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Stretch Break is an ergonomic app that helps prevent Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) by gently reminding you to take periodic breaks while using your computer. Full-motion animated figures show you how to properly perform stretches.
Stretch Break was designed by a team of health care professionals who carefully reviewed each stretch in the app. Stretches focus on parts of the body most likely to be harmed by RSIs including the neck, arms, hands, back, legs, and wrists. Eye exercises are also included. The Kids version contains 20 stretches. Several focus on stretching the muscles associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The app also contains ErgoHints guidelines for setting up an ergonomically correct workstation as well as a series of ErgoReminders that reinforce good ergonomic principles. Research proves that it works.

Corrected text placement on iPad devices.
Excellent Fitness Tool
This is by far the most useful stretching tool I have discovered. I find I stretch much more using this tool, and feel more limber and energized as a result. The app's name "for kids" is misleading. It is beneficial for all ages, and probably more for desk-bound adults.
The video clips allow you to simply follow what you see. The (optional) music slows you down with its soothing melody.
The one limitation is that the stretches appear to always be in the same order, rather than randomized. This seems like a bug.
It is always saying time to sretch
