An Anti-Fatigue Mat Specially Designed For Use With A Standing Desk

The use of standing desks has increased due to the benefits of avoiding sitting in one position for prolonged periods. The idea of motion while sitting, seen in the design of the active seat, is now promoted while standing with the best anti-fatigue mat you can get.

Standing too long in one position can be just as detrimental to your health as sitting. There is more weight bearing in the legs and feet, as well as pooling of blood in the lower extremities, and strain on the postural muscles in the back.

While this is specifically designed for use with sit to stand desks, you do not have to use one to achieve the benefits of this mat, which has special features to prevent lower back pain and keep your legs healthy.

anti fatigue mat

Anti-fatigue mat provides micro-movement; because the material is soft, it provides a slight instability, which means that your feet move from the ankle to provide stability. This can help with keeping the lower back muscles active, increasing blood flow, and decreasing back pain associated with prolonged, static standing.

With a specially designed three dimensional cushioned surface, the ant-fatigue mat also offers macro-movements. The larger macro-movements are major part of healthy standing. It encourages you to take an active role in maintaining standing postures that avoid static positioning for prolonged periods. From using macro-motions, the blood does not pool in the legs, it is returned to the heart by gentle muscle contractions that squeeze the returning vessels.

Every feature of the mat is designed to promote motion and prevent fatigue. The raised front corners provide an area to move your right and left foot in an alternating fashion to maintain the fluidity between the lower back and pelvis. This prevents fatigue and stiffness, allowing nutrients to flow to the spinal discs. It is this motion that helps prevent static loads, which can lead to disc degeneration.

The teardrop shape in the middle of the mat is designed to alternate right and left foot to keep your stance varied and offers a great way to roll your feet and ankles, and even massage the arch of the foot.

The thicker side portions of the mat provide variations for cushioning and ankle positioning. You can even use it to place the ball of the feet on the edge and do calf raises for a quick recharging of the legs.

The quality is the best, with a 7 year warranty, and you will get years of use without the cracking and failing seen with cheaper mats. The anatomically designed terrain, coupled with the soft, yet sturdy feel of the mat will encourage use that is very beneficial to those who want the most benefits from using a standing desk.

There is a standard version for 5′ 4 and taller, and a mini version for those 5′ 4 and shorter. It can also be based on the amount of room you have available at your work station.
