Office Foot Rest
The addition of a desk foot rest will greatly increase your comfort while sitting at your desk.
The first benefit to consider is the fact that an adjustable foot rest increases circulation and decreases the chance of circulatory issues from arising due to sitting at a desk for hours at a time day after day.
A foot rest under a desk also reduces the risk of lower back issues and positively impacts an individual’s posture. Lower back issues lead to absenteeism and a loss of production.
Better posture leads to increased comfort. Discomfort is an annoying distraction for any worker, and it can diminish someone’s ability to remain focused.
A comfortable employee will work more efficiently, be more content and will remained focused for longer periods.
The purchase of an office foot rest is a small investment that will pay for itself in the long term through increases in productivity and minimizing costs associated with strain and injury related to improper posture.
