Anti-Fatigue mats and matting are an investment and a very small one at that. Anti-fatigue matting and mats work like this; Standing and walking on anti-fatigue mats and matting stimulates the muscles in your limbs and they will subtly contract and expand to adjust to the varying compression of the mats - matting This flexibility of anti-fatigue mats is the key to making muscles react which in turn increases blood flow and oxygen channelled through to the heart. Fatigue is significantly reduced. In studies around the world it has been proven that employees who were forced to stand on hard concrete floors over long periods of time suffered significant levels of fatigue and discomfort in the feet, legs, hips and back. Whereas employees standing on anti-fatigue mats and matting recorded negligible fatigue and good comfort levels. Make a very small investment in keeping your employees or yourselves, comfortable, at low risk to body stress and happy with their environment. Ask anyone who has had to Stand for long periods of time on hard floor surfaces how much dis comfort and physical fatigue it causes them. Understand that this is real! Acknowledge that leg muscles become static and constricted working overtime to keep them in an upright position. Blood and oxygen levels are greatly reduced when trying to flow through constricted areas causing discomfort and some pain. The heart has to pump harder causing energy sapping tiredness. Anti-fatigue mats work by stimulating movement i.e. frequent activity of the leg and calf muscles, which in turn, promotes an easier flow of blood - oxygen back to the heart.
