When shopping for an ergonomic chair, an sit-stand desk, or a full ergonomic set-up, it can be easy to focus on your back, shoulders, and neck and overlook your legs and feet. However, if your feet and legs aren't properly supported then you could end up harming your circulation and causing long-term health problems. Fortunately, our footrest can be a great option to coax movement and active sitting.
You’ve got an ergonomic chair, great screen settings and desk accessories that promote healthy muscle function. But what about your feet? The footrest is an essential piece to the office wellness puzzle. For starters, footrests promote blood circulation. When sitting for long periods of time, your circulation slows down. Good posture, promoted by ergonomic equipment, is the best way to encourage circulation all over your body. Your feet and legs are no exception. If you sit with your feet dangling or your knees at an odd angle all day long, you risk developing blood clots or varicose veins. A footrest can also reduce back tension by taking the load off your lower limbs.
