TIPS from the Experts (UCLA Ergonomics)
What should you look for?
You need a footrest if your feet are not resting on the floor. If you always have your feet on the casters of the chair, or sit to the middle of the chair to get your feet on the floor, you will probably benefit from a footrest.
- A footrest that is adjustable in height is helpful so that you can reposition the chair height if needed.
- A tilting footrest is optional - use one if it feels good and for sitting in reclined positions.
- The top of the rest should have a tread that will keep your feet from sliding off.
- Make sure that you get one for the height that you need - one that is too high will position the hips and the spine at an undesirable angle.
How do you use it properly?
Keep it centred under the desk, and rest the feet on it while the back is supported by the back of the chair. Sometimes if the footrest is too high, it will work better if it is pushed further under the desk. Play with the distance to find the most comfortable position for you.
Bad Backs is an exclusive distributor for Jobri in Australia.
Jobri's Deluxe Foot Rest reminds you to sit all the way back in your chair, allowing the chair back to take some of the stress and strain off your back.
Back pain can result from a lack of leg support as the weight of "dangling legs" pulls the pelvis forward and down. This exaggerates the natural "lordosis" (lumbar curve) of the spine to a degree that forces the supporting muscle groups to work harder just to keep the body stable on the chair.
Without a footrest, unsupported legs can suffer from nerve compression, which sometimes can affect the popliteal area (backs of the knees).
Proper leg and knee positions are especially important for anyone suffering from arthritis, varicose veins, phlebitis, gout or an aching back.
