Anti-Fatigue Mats

In a study done at England’s Loughborough University, it was discovered that anti-fatigue mats have tremendous health benefits preventing injuries to feet and legs, preventing joint stiffness, and reducing back pain. When standing on hard services for extended periods, anti-fatigue mats create a cushion from the force of standing that would otherwise lead to discomfort.

Tips in Using Anti-Fatigue Mats:

1. Use the right size of the anti-fatigue mat when standing on hard concrete surfaces in an industrial setting, or when using a sit-stand desk in office settings.
2. Make frequent minor changes when standing on the rubber surface mat to avoid stiffness and increase circulation.
3. Use ribbed anti-fatigue mats in communal areas to prevent slips, falls, and injuries.
4. Use the proper footwear for the job, such as thick insulating soles and shock-absorbing insoles. However, although this is often possible in industrial settings, in office settings, dress shoes typically don’t have the support that is needed, which┬áis why anti-fatigue mats are so beneficial.
5. If moving from a sitting to standing position, chose an anti-fatigue mat that makes it easy to move it out of the way when it isn’t needed. Some mats have ridges that make it easy to do this.
