The Benefits of Having a Footrest at Office

20 May 2019Dylan Campbell

When you think of supporting your body in the office, you will see many pieces on looking for ergonomic office furniture. A wrist rest or chair can come to mind, but honestly, you may require more than the present ergonomic settings to make sure you’re receiving the right support. It’s easy to not remember that your legs and feet need support just like the neck, back, and head do, but this can cause long-term health complications after a lot of long days seated and working in your office furniture. As a result, it’s important to keep in mind that you need to use a footrest when you’re taking a look into office set up ergonomics.  Here are just some advantages of using a footrest in your workplace.

It Encourages Active Sitting

Numerous studies point to a connection between sitting for long hours and enduring health problems. Active sitting is a good way to ease some of the problems connected with sitting for long hours or time, but it is quickly forgotten, and at times difficult to incorporate into your workday schedule. However, lots of footrests support a rocking motion, which makes your legs full of life all through the day and provides some respite from the dullness of sitting in office furnishings throughout the day.

Improves Circulation

Keeping your foot elevated, or still rocking, all through the day provides respite by improving blood flow and circulation all over your body. Sitting throughout the day can lead to circulatory issues and back problems, which can make your legs and feet to go asleep in the day and lead to chronic problems at the end. However, ergonomic footrest eases the stress on your legs, which can alleviate your backside of seat-related stresses, trim down swelling in your legs, and even avert blood clots.

Provides reprieve for Shorter Office Mates

Beyond just providing relief, footrests can help to offer a solid base for petite coworkers to work from and aid them to make the most of the ergonomic benefits of them of other office furniture.

Integrates Seamlessly into Adjustable Setups

Many footrests can slot into any kind office setup–including standing and adjustable desks. In fact, several footrests are adjustable, thereby making you to enjoy the ergonomic benefits of a footrest while improving your active workflow and productivity at a standing desk arrangement.

Increases Comfort

Beyond some ergonomic benefits, a footrest is basically a comfortable part of office furniture. Keeping your feet high is just more comfortable for the majority than keeping their leg on the ground. You can get one with the right material for you to take full advantage of this comfort, and still blend the style with the other furniture items in your office.

The communications and customer service was first class. Thanks Dylan and also Lindsay who delivered and assembled the desk.Might get another one for my wife now!

Shopping for home office furniture today. Dylan was very helpful and was very understanding of my requirements. Would definitely recommend.
Bought a new office chair for summer. I am a large guy and the chair was rated just above my weight. Sadly the chair began to break and bend. I returned it to Danny's with no receipt but the date and price I paid. Dylan was able to find my order, took the chair for repairs and even gave me a loaner chair. I expected about 1 week turnaround but was surprised it took 3 days. Awesome company and awesome service. You have a customer for life.

The whole process was so neat and tidy without any hiccups and hidden conditions, from the quoting stages to the delivery i was informed of what was happening and the service has been great...
I was extremely sceptical when I initially read Dannys had a 5 star google rating. However after visiting there today and buying a wonderful chair I perhaps think they deserve 6 stars rather than 5.Thanks Marek hope this gets you a pay-rise.

Have just received the delivery of new furniture for a home office. The staff at Danny's Desk were great to deal with, very friendly and helpful and not pushy. Great selection of everything one would need and good prices. Was kept informed regarding the delivery with a call after purchase, a call to confirm the day and time for delivery and a call on the day of prior to actual delivery. Would highly recommend.

I bought one chair more than one year ago, and it’s built with high quality and very comfortable. One thing happened to me recently that again proves this company really cares about it’s customers.I was lodging tax return and couldn’t count my receipt. So I write a letter to a email address listed on their website, asking for help, but not actually expecting a reply as the purchase happened more than one year ago.Amazingly, I got a reply the next morning from one of their staff named Marek (my email is precious evening). I was so grateful with them. I highly recommend this company if you want to buy a chair.
