Anti Fatigue Mats
There are many benefits and advantages of using Anti Fatigue mats at work or at home. A good quality anti fatigue mat will provide a comfortable yet sturdy walking surface that relieves the strain caused from continual standing for its entire life. While standing, these anti fatigue mats will stimulate and encourage blood circulation in the feet allowing the natural flow of blood around the body. When standing on a hard floor or a basic or poor quality anti-fatigue mat, the blood vessels in your feet become crimped stopping the blood flow leading to symptoms such as back pain, aching legs, pins and needles and numbness or loss of feeling in feet and legs or even light headedness. While these are temporary symptoms, these will eventually become permanent health issues if not prevented early which may potentially cause damage for life.
