Anti-fatigue mats are widely used in the workplace to help make life more comfortable and safer for employees who need to stand for long periods of time on hard floors. It’s been scientifically proven that workers who have to stand for any length of time as part of their job develop lower limb disorders – including the uncomfortable condition Plantar Fasciitis, which results in pain in the heel and underfoot area. Luckily help is at hand in the form of anti-fatigue mats which offer employees a cushioning effect resulting in less discomfort and better circulation to the lower limbs, thereby reducing leg and foot tiredness. They also feature a thermal insulating effect which works to combat the cold air that rises from concrete floors. Mat surfaces are also anti-slip for better stability and grip, helping to prevent incidences of slipping or tripping while at work.
