Studies have shown that sitting inactively for extended periods can contribute to worker health issues related to poor circulation, including back discomfort, pressure and swelling in the legs and feet, and even blood clots. When the knees fail to align with the hips, uncomfortable pressure on the legs and buttocks can occur.
Recent studies have shown that these problems can easily be reduced and avoided with the use of a footrest. The gentle, regular motion and rocking of the legs and feet helps to alleviate pressure and increase circulation.
• Relief from extended sitting by facilitating a gentle rocking of the feet
• Increase in circulation through the exercise of lower leg muscles
• Support for feet and legs and ease of pressure on the lower back
