One of the most overlooked aspects of good workstation ergonomics is the footrest. Leg activity is crucial to maintaining good circulation and comfort. Prolonged sitting in the same static position can have a host of negative effects, but a quality footrest can help counteract them. Footrests provide raised foot support, which increases circulation and relieves pressure on your lower back. Adjustable footrests, also known as rocking foot machines, encourages foot movement with a gentle back and forth motion. It’s almost like a rocking chair for your feet. Our footrests also allow you to stimulate your feet’s pressure points while you work. This way you can relieve lower back pressure by elevating your feet and increase your blood flow and is designed to keep your feet supported and comfortable, ease leg problems and lessen lower back issues. Ergonomic footrests can help prevent blood clots, varicose veins and pressure on the Achilles tendon caused by prolonged or inactive sitting and ease pressure on the back of the legs if the feet are not resting on the floor. Can also serve as a gentle reminder to sit all the way back in your chair, allowing the chair back to take some of the stress and strain off of your back. Ergonomic design positions you properly to help reduce back, neck and leg strain and prevent fatigue. Independently adjustable height and angle help you maximize proper body alignment and comfort. It allows the seated person to rest their feet upon it, supporting their legs at a mostly horizontal level, thus giving rise to use of the term footrest, for this item.
