A brilliant new standing mat from Finnish company Humantool
Static standing causes problems for the body, just as it does to sit still. The return blood flow through your leg veins is limited, which can result in swelling and even pain. Static positions also put strain on our thighs and buttock muscles. Standing on a hard floor deactivates the deep muscles of your core and can put strain on the lower back, which in turn can easily leave you swaybacked, increasing the strain on the neck and shoulder area.
What is the Balance Spot?
Designed to be used with sit stand workstations and desks, this Finnish invention is a unique anti-fatigue mat made with a cellular structure. It is extemely flexible, lightweight yet strong, and super comfortable under your feet (with or without shoes). The flexible structure of the mat maintains our movement, and provides natural exercise for the body. Perfect for those of us that like standing to work, but get tired and grumpy after a few hours !
Helps decrease fatigue to the legs and feet through movement and improved blood circulation
