It’s great to stand while you work, especially if you want to add physical activity into your day. But even if you’re used to standing for hours, your feet, legs, and lower back may get tired. You can help combat this fatigue with an anti-fatigue standing desk floor mat.
Many experts recommend the use of anti-fatigue mats, including the National Safety Council , along with a variety of safety engineers, ergonomists, risk managers, occupational nurses, industrial hygienists, and loss control agents. The right anti-fatigue mat can help ease discomfort, promote a healthier workplace, and can help everyone feel more energetic at work.
The Active Standing Desk Mat has a contoured surface that has been specifically engineered to encourage movement and stretching while standing. Its other features include:
Promoting more movement than standing alone
The Active Standing Mat’s surface is not flat, and that’s by design. The sloped surface and massage ball encourage you to stay out of the same position, while enabling you to stretch your calves and massage your feet. The uneven terrain of the mat drives frequent movement, to keep the blood pumping throughout your legs.
Preventing fatigue with a cushioned surface
The Active Standing Desk Mat is manufactured with premium, high-density molded foam that’s much thicker than most of the “cheap” mats being sold today. This Topo standing mat alternative provides excellent cushioning that you can feel the moment you step on it.
Reducing the impact on your joints while standing
The highly cushioned surface and sloped sidewalls of this standing desk floor mat let you stretch your calves, elevate one or both feet, and comfortably stand with a wider stance. When you stand in the same position for too long, your joints can feel temporarily stuck. Over time, this can lead to tendon and ligament damage, and can cause soft tissue injuries.
Relocating easily, even hands free
On most surfaces, a standing desk floor mat should easily slide out of the way. A gentle push on the massage ball with one foot should enable you to position the Active Standing mat where you want it. It weighs only eight pounds, so you won’t strain your muscles trying to pick it up or slide it around.
