If you work in an office, I’m sure you’ve discovered how sitting for long periods can be taxing on your muscles. Many offices are now providing standing desks as an option to try and combat this issue. In fact, research shows that using a standing desk can improve employees’ health, mood and productivity.
However, standing for long periods of time can also be detrimental to one’s health. Leg muscles can become totally static and constricted as they work overtime to keep the person in an upright position. Blood flow is also often reduced which causes pain and discomfort. This is where anti-fatigue mats come in. When a person stands on one of these mats, his/her muscles will subtly contract and expand as they adjust to the flexibility of the mat. This muscle movement increases blood-flow and increases the amount of oxygen reaching the heart. Plus, fatigue is significantly reduced. And let’s not forget the comfortability of anti-fatigue mats! Who wouldn’t feel happier at work when they feel more comfortable and at ease?
