Standing for long periods of time on hard floor surfaces is very uncomfortable and causes physical fatigue. Muscles in the legs become stationary and narrow as they work double time to keep a straight position. Pain and distress is slowly felt as the blood flow is greatly restricted. This situation forces the heart to work harder and pump blood through these constricted areas and slowly the energy in the body, diminishes. But when the person is using or standing on an anti-fatigue mat, the flexibility of the mat will help the muscles contract and adjust.
An anti-fatigue mat is best paired with a standing desk. This will relieve pressure on your heels, back, legs, and shoulders while providing support to your feet and assist you in standing for a long period of time.
There are several factors to be considered before buying an anti-fatigue mat. This will help the worker to understand better how anti-fatigue mat can be helpful in addressing the stress and pain caused by too much standing. These guidelines are both beneficial to employers as well as the individuals who are currently using a standing desk converter.
Anti-fatigue mats are mats designed to reduce fatigue caused by standing for longer periods on hard surfaces such as cement floors. Fatigue-reducing mats can be made from a variety of materials such as rubber, carpeting materials, vinyl, and wood.
