Anti fatigue matting is designed to reduce fatigue and the risks of regular excessive standing in the workplace, by providing cushioning underfoot and promoting subtle foot movement.
This type of matting promotes blood circulation, which is crucial. As the feet subtly adapt to the cushioned surface, blood circulation is stimulated as the foot and calf muscles expand and contract, activating the venous pump, which pushes blood back up to the heart. These mats also provides relief from cold concrete floors and slip resistance for all round wellbeing.
Standing for long periods of time can cause aches and pains, which can get worse over time if the cause is not addressed. Aches and pains are just the start, workers soon realise that fatigue from standing can cause more serious problems like muscular pain and circulation problems. Pain and tiredness from standing can often lead to concentration lapses and as a consequence, result in workplace accidents.
