Along with computer and internet use rate increasing worldwide, physical inactivity is also prevalent in most of developing countries. Long-hour computer use may contribute symptoms such as visual syndromes and musculoskeletal disorders. For the purpose of reducing the risk of physical inactivity and promoting healthy computer use, this study tries to develop a timing broadcasting health-related animation program for prolonged sitting computer users and further examines the effects of the program on participants’ computer-related health belief and behavior. Before- and after- questionnaires were used for data collection. The results show that the animation program does have effects on reminding the participants of taking a break and stretching body. The program does influence the participants’ belief and behavior towards health. The development and examination were documented and discussed within the context of planning the next steps for health agencies’ efforts in healthy computer use promotion intervention development and evaluation.
