What are the benefits? Ergonomic leg rests are one of the newest innovations to further help provide people with a more comfortable work environment and are quickly making their way into offices all around the world. With its simplistic design, the leg rest was designed for workers with medical conditions that require them to need to elevate one or both legs throughout the day. Many spend the majority of their work day sitting in an office chair, which makes it beneficial to those without medical injuries as well that just want a place to rest their leg/s throughout the day. A leg rest allows you to further take care of your body and needs while working by providing additional support in the legs, a part of the body that is often forgotten about in other ergonomic products that are offered. Owning a leg rest is beneficial for a number of reasons including increased health benefits, ease of use and support.
Many medical conditions alter or affect the way in which we work, and in order to keep comfortable while working throughout the day, sometimes this calls for investing in products that can help us achieve comfort. There are many health conditions that can benefit from owning a leg rest including those with a knee injury, bunion removal, back pain, varicose veins, edema, heavy leg syndrome, neuromuscular disorders, trauma, pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or even because of side effects of certain medicines. Elevating your legs provides comfortable support to the entire leg and increases circulation in the lower extremities. Working in a semi reclined position or with your feet elevated transfers your weight difference, decreases fatigue and increases the ease of blood flow throughout your body. All of this leads to increased comfort and therefor increased productivity while working.
The important feature to look for on an ergonomic leg rest is the ability to adjust the height. Height adjustment is needed to match the needs of your body as some of us are built taller while others are shorter; not everyone can conform to one set height. It is recommended the height is set so that the knee is comfortable and does not raise your leg off the seat of the chair. Always follow your doctor or physical therapists recommendations for posture support first
