I doubt if this reply will constitute a consolation, but your experience sounds so familiar! We offer programs for people suffering from RSI and for orginization needing to protect their employees against computer injuries. The feedbacks we get are great, people , spoil us with compliments, but very little business. Working our way into the corporate is also a long process. At times we get to think that people would rather pay a costly visit to their physician than pay a USD to avoid the pain and the need for such a visit.
I have been invited to an ergonomic meeting at the investment center of a large Bank that decided to . At the beginning of the presentation by their ergonomic specialist he projected a slide listing the many pains resulting from RSI and asked the 150 people present: “how many have experienced one or more of these complaints?” No more than 20% of the hand were lifted. One of the investment bankers stood up (a young woman, its always women who stand up in front of the crowd where courage is needed) and said to the lecturer: “this is not the right way to phrase this question”, she turned round to face her colleagues and asked: “is there anyone here who did NOT suffer from one or more of these complaints?” Not even one hand came up. For me this was the essence of our problem: we have a potential of 100% and the marketing risk is that we are left with the shy minority.
Breaking through that is what all our marketing effort is all about.
Don’t give up,
That site is first and foremost about movement and not about scalpture 100% or 90%. People attention time is limited and they need some guidance – we found it useful especially when combined with the exercises.
I didn’t get the impression the guy was looking to write a PHD on the subject… Quick advice is not necessarily bad advice and very often is an answer to what people need or want, or can cope with.

You will also find the guidelines in that site.
There is some interesting research done by Cognifit http://www.e-mindfitness.com – they do not do computer games, but rather do mind fitness exercises and memory exercises. They also provide tests that can indicate one’s mind fitness status/progress.
