Ergonomic Footrest

Our collection of ergonomic footrests and mats are a great addition to any office to help relieve muscle tension and pain which can occur during long periods of sitting at your desk.

Ergonomic Footrests

We offer an assortment of anti-fatigue mats that are great for using with a sit-stand desk. Standing on these mats encourages healthy blood flow as your body remains active. The mats are made from durable, lightweight materials which can easily be stored under your desk when you are no longer standing.

Why is an adjustable footrest important?

If you care about blood circulation in your legs, ergonomics in the office and more comfort at your desk you might enjoy using a footrest! They are also perfect paired with a sit stand desk - resting one foot while standing and switching between feet helps you get some exercise while standing at your desk.

They can be adjusted to an angle that gives better posture support while you are sitting in the office and the ergonomic design also cushions your feet from the hard ground. They are fantastic value for money - your feet will thank you for the comfort investment. They are also useful for shorter people so they can place their feet in an ergonomic position. A foot rest lets people with shorter legs sit more comfortably in their chairs, aligning their whole posture, including back and arms, correctly.

FAQ

We've put together some of the most common questions we get asked about buying an ergonomic mat to make things easier for you.

What are the benefits of using a footrest?

Increased Comfort

Not only do the rests improve your overall comfort and productivity, they can also bring some much needed cosiness to your work environment. The Fellowes Climate Control Footrest has all the benefits of an ergonomic foot-rest but with one extra feature - climate control! We all know the frustration of working in an air-conditioned office - one minute you’re hot, the next you’re cold. With the Fellowes Footrest you can select the temperature for your feet all day long. For extra comfort, the climate control footrest has massage bumps on the top to help reduce any unwanted muscle tension in your feet.

Reduces Back Pain

Resting your feet correctly can help to reduce back pain that is regularly associated with continued computer use. The position of your feet greatly affects the posture of your lower back, spine and neck. When using a footrest you are less likely to place your feet in posture-damaging-positions including putting your feet under your chair or stretching them out too far.

Beneficial for short people

Sitting with your feet planted on the ground is the most comfortable and healthiest way to sit during long periods of computer use. Unfortunately, if you are a shorter person, sitting with your feet on the floor isn’t always possible. An ergonomic footrest will ensure that your feet are always flat and will properly distribute your weight to increase your comfort levels while you work. Using a mat and having your feet firmly planted on a surface, you are less likely to develop muscle aches and poor blood flow from having your feet hang loose.

Tips for using an ergonomic footrest

Here are our top tips to ensure you are getting maximum comfort from your ergonomic device:

  • Keep your hips a little higher than your knees to assist with healthy blood flow.
  • Move your feet around the mat, don’t just plant them and keep them still. You should be constantly moving positions to keep comfortable.
  • Alternate between sitting and standing.
  • Make sure your chair isn’t too high when using a footrest.
