Foot Rest

What is an Ergonomic Foot Rest?

An ergonomic foot rest is a foot rest that is designed to keep your feet supported and comfortable. Foot rests should not cause the foot to rest on sharp or hard edges.

Benefits of an Ergonomic Foot Rest

Ergonomic foot rests can help prevent blood clots, varicose veins and pressure on the Achilles tendon. Blood clots, varicose veins and pressure on the Achilles tendon are often caused by prolonged, inactive sitting.

A foot rest can also serve as a gentle reminder to sit all the way back in your chair, allowing the chair back to take some of the stress and strain off of your back.

Possible Drawbacks of an Ergonomic Foot Rest

Ergonomic foot rests will not benefit everyone. One of the main possible drawbacks is overcompensation for a chair that is too high.

Features to look for when buying an Ergonomic Foot Rest

  • Size
    • Big foot rests give more choice of leg posture.
  • Stability
    • Foot rests should be stable enough to stay in place.
  • Mobility

  • Height adjustment
  • Angle adjustment
  • Warranty
  • Massage or exercise function
    • Foot rests that allow exercise or massage the feet may be beneficial.
