What are the finish options for the Foot Machine?
The FM500 is available in Cherry and Black finish.Will the Massage Balls get in the way of normal use?
The Foot Machine with Massage Balls can be turned over and used without the Massage Balls. But considering that the Massage Balls feel great and promote circulation, who would want to do that anyway? What are the benefits of using a footrest?
Using an angle-adjustable footrest actually encourages workers to sit up and sit back in their chair. This is accomplished by actually making it more uncomfortable for an individual sitting in a chair to lean forward and sit on the front edge of the seat pan. By altering bad habits into good ones, bad postures can be corrected before they have a detrimental impact.
Footrests can also help prevent blood clots and pressure on the Achilles tendon, which are caused by prolonged, inactive sitting. Another good point is that a footrest 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.How do I know if I need a footrest?
If your chair is adjusted to the proper height and your feet aren't flat on the floor, you should consider using a footrest. Footrests can also help individuals who have experienced problems with their lower backs. Keep your back positioned against the back rest of their chair so that the chair back, instead of their lower back muscles, is taking some of the stress and strain off your back. A footrest will also relieve pressure on the bottom of the thigh, improving on the efficiency of your chair. Is a Rocking Footrest Better?
Yes. By encouraging the user to continually move his/her feet, the footrest helps to keep circulation in the lower legs and feet, which reduces the likelihood of blood clots. Bottom line is that we were not designed by nature to sit inactive in a chair for prolonged periods of time!What Should I Look for in an Ergonomic Footrest?
Footrests should be sturdy enough to remain in place, yet mobile enough to be moved aside by the feet when needed. Height and angle adjustability are also key attributes that may be useful, depending on your specific work environment. Finally, if they provide an exercise benefit, such as rocking or massage balls, they will provide the additional health benefits movement provides.

A footrest may not seem like a primary ergonomic accessory, but it does provide significant ergonomic benefit. An ergonomic footrest can ease leg problems and lessen lower back issues. And back problems are one of the main reasons for lost productivity in the workplace, so a footrest should be included in your budget for an ergonomic workstation.Posture
Your hips should be slightly higher than your knees. Don’t keep your feet flat on the floor but move them around often. Use a footrest if there is pressure on the back of the legs or if the feet are not resting on the floor. The footrest should be adjustable and should support the entire foot. Movement Improves Circulation
Rocking footrests or footrests with built-in massage balls promote movement, which can help increase circulation problems that result from long periods of inactivity such as blood clots. You should change your position as frequently as possible by adjusting your hips, moving your feet, lifting your arms and just slightly altering your posture continuously during your work day. You should also take frequent breaks ? say for 10 minutes every hour - and have a good stretch.Position of Feet
Feet should never dangle, unsupported from the floor or a footrest. A footrest is a good idea for shorter people and can be used to support some leg weight. For additional Workstation tips, please visit our ERGOresources center!
