An ergonomic workspace improves health and comfort in a home or commercial office. Fellowes footrests provide comfortable support that assists users in maintaining correct seated postures. Using a footrest also increases circulation to reduce the risk of pain and long-term health problems associated with sitting for hours at a time.

Benefits of Fellowes Footrests One of the most difficult things about sitting at a desk for hours at a time is the health problems that can arise. Long periods of sitting can lead to backaches, poor posture and poor circulation. Adding a footrest under your desk can help alleviate many of these symptoms and increase the comfort of your workstation. A footrest helps align the spine in a way similar to a lumbar support on a chair and also reduces tension in the knees and ankles.
Most Fellowes footrest models feature a stable base and a platform for the feet that tilts upward at an angle of about 22 degrees. The sloped platform supports the feet at a comfortable and natural angle, which removes some of the pressure on the knees, hips and lower back. Most models are made of durable plastic with a textured surface to provide stability for the feet. You can also find styles that include an antimicrobial coating for additional safety and protection from germs.
Choosing the Right Footrest There are several different Fellowes footrest models so you can find the right one for your office. There are models with a flat cushioned surface designed to sit on the floor directly under the knees. These are good for shorter people to keep the knees, hips and feet in a comfortable position when sitting at a tall desk and reduce stress on the lower back.
Some footrests offer a tilted, moveable surface that allows the user to change the height or the angle for comfort. Others offer a split platform where each side can move independently. This allows the user to have a different setting for each foot, and to change it throughout the day. Most styles have some texturing on the platform, and some include large bumps that provide a massage for the feet. There are also models with a contoured rubber surface on the platform that's designed to target pressure points in the feet.
Do Fellowes Footrests Have Temperature Control Features? Some footrest models have specially-designed vents to circulate air and keep feet cool. This is especially helpful for offices where computer equipment under the desk can cause the area to be too warm.
What Are the Benefits of a Rocking Footrest? Along with stationary footrests, there are also styles that have a rounded base to allow the platform to rock back and forth to improve circulation and reduce fatigue. These models have tread along the base to keep the footrest in place during rocking.
Does a Fellowes Footrest Come With a Warranty? Most Fellowes footrests have a manufacturer's warranty. The length varies between models, but most warranties are between 1 year and 3 years.
