Guide to Choosing the Best Anti‑Fatigue Mat

Anti-Fatigue Mats

ergoCentric’s Anti-Fatigue Mats are specifically designed to reduce the fatigue and discomfort that people typically experience when standing on a hard surface for long periods of time. Ergonomic Anti‑Fatigue Mats provide a cushioned surface that encourages slight leg and calf muscle movements, which is very important in decreasing the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). They also increase blood flow and circulation through the body, reducing the amount of stress and fatigue on the body.

When purchasing an ergonomic Anti-Fatigue Mat, there are characteristics you should be aware of:

ergoCentric’s Anti-Fatigue mats feature beveled edges and are available in two different sizes (18” x 24” and 24” x 36”).

There are a number of ways to ensure that employees who need to work long hours in standing positions don’t experience discomfort, beginning with Anti-Fatigue matting; however, an Anti-Fatigue Mat alone may not be enough to completely eliminate discomfort, depending on the person. Pairing an Anti-Fatigue Mat with a footrest is a very simple and effective way to make standing less static, promoting movement throughout the day by allowing you to change positions. In addition, investing in other ergonomic tools such as sit-stands and height-adjustable tables further encourages changes in working posture while simultaneously allowing employees to be as comfortable as possible.
