One of the most overlooked aspects of good office ergonomics is a quality footrest. An ergonomic footrest can provide significant ergonomic benefit, including reducing leg pain and lower back problems.
Just a modest increase in leg activity has been shown to help counteract the negative effects of prolonged sitting at your desk.
To get the maximum benefit from a rocking footrest make sure your feet do not dangle off the footrest. Also, make sure that you take frequent breaks from the computer to get up and refresh your legs.
And because it also provides raised support for your feet, the result is improved circulation in your legs plus relief of pressure on your lower back.
