Footrests & Legrests

Our Guide to Footrests & Legrests

Why, or when, should I need to use a footrest? Whenever your feet don't touch the ground! There are several factors that could influence whether or not you need a footrest, but I generally suggest working from the shoulders down. When sitting at your desk you should have relaxed shoulders (not raised/strained), with your forearms parallel to the floor when typing/using the mouse. At the same time you want to have your knees slightly lower than your hips (to keep the pelvic angle nice and open) and with your back resting against the back of your chair. If you can achieve all this AND be able to reach the floor easily with the heel of your feet, then you don't need a footrest. If you can't, and your feet are dangling, or you are only able to get your toes in contact with the floor, you need a footrest. Simple!

Of course, if you opt for a height adjustable desk that goes nice and low, such as our DeskRise SPS3, you will never need a footrest!

Legrests are a different story. They are suggested by health professionals for a variety of medical, rather than postural, reasons, but it is essential that you have enough space and no obstructions underneath your desk so that you can stretch out your legs underneath the desk and still get close enough to your keyboard! Our suggestion, again, is that a desk with no crossbeam or modesty panel (such as the Deskrise SPS3 again) would work very well.
