Anti Fatigue Mats
Anti-fatigue mats are everywhere, and rightly so. Employers realise that these fatigue-reducing mats not only improve employee productivity and concentration levels, but also reduces the risk of illness and injury from prolonged standing.
Anti-fatigue mats help to ensure regular movement. The cushioned surface of the mat makes your feet naturally adapt and stabilise your body. The movement the anti-fatigue mat promotes is minute, but is enough to reduce and sometimes prevent body fatigue and health risks to the veins and heart. The continual movement of your muscles increases the bloodflow and helps oxygen reach the heart.
The main benefits of anti-fatigue mats are:
- Reduced lower back pain
- Prevents stiffness in your joints
- Reduced possibility of headaches
- Reduced energy used
- Beneficial effect on postural support
- Reduced pressure on feet
- Increased productivity
