An ergonomic workspace improves productivity and can help an employee stay energized throughout the day. Footrests are one way to maintain comfort and keep the feet at the ideal angle to improve circulation and reduce stress. Staples® carries different styles, colors, and sizes of under desk footrests to choose from.

Reasons to Use a Footrest
Elevating the feet throughout the work day can help reduce back strain and lessen swelling of the feet, knees, and ankles. These devices also work well even with standing desks by taking the weight off of one foot at a time. Desk foot rests help keep the body relaxed while sitting to encourage excellent posture for increased energy and an improved attention span.

Those with short legs benefit from a foot stool, which allows the feet to rest flat. Foot stools decrease pressure on the backs of the legs to diminish the risk of varicose veins, and some include massaging pads and rollers to soothe tired and aching muscles.

Options for Footrests
Most foot stools adjust in height to accommodate the user. Multi-position under desk footrests can be raised or lowered for the comfort of several different individuals, while fixed designs are ideal for a single user. Choose a design with non-skid rubber feet to prevent the stool from moving around or sliding during use. Those with non-slip tops deliver a stable place to keep shoes from slipping off. Compact foot rockers help improve circulation and keep the legs moving to reduce fatigue. Foot stools with dual platforms let you rest each leg independently from one another for increased comfort. Balance boards are another alternative to correct posture problems and help the worker stay focused and alert while standing. The low-profile design makes it easy to slide the board out of the way when not in use.

What’s the Proper Height for Footrests?
When sitting at a desk, make sure the eyes are level with your monitor. The back should be straight and feet should be flat on the foot platform with the knees at a 90-degree angle. The tilt incline should rotate between zero to 35 degrees for maximum comfort.

What’s the Optimal Size for Footrests?
Foot platforms that adjust from 2 to 5 inches in height are sufficient to accommodate most individuals. The platform should measure a minimum of 15 inches in width and 11 inches long to provide plenty of room to place the feet.

What’s the Proper Way to Use Standing Footrests?
Standing foot platforms have rails that rest one foot at a time. Those with dual-height rails let the user change positions over time and make it easier to stand longer. To use a standing foot stool, place the device directly in front of where the individual would normally stand. Place one foot flat on the floor while the other foot rests comfortably on the stand. Alternate from one foot to the other periodically to reduce fatigue.

What are Footrests Made of?
Most foot stools are made from high-quality materials that are designed to withstand daily use. Resilient plastic platforms and sturdy metal frames safeguard against cracks and breaking. Some platforms are padded or contain thick memory foam for added cushion.
