What Type Of Pressure Relief Mat Is Best Over Concrete

By Paige Cerulli Created: April, 2022 - Modified: June, 2024

Pressure relief mats can help to keep you more comfortable, and they make long hours on your feet much more forgiving. When you’re working with a concrete floor, choosing the right pressure relief mat can make all the difference.

The Best Pressure Relief Mats to Use Over Concrete

When you have to stand and work on concrete, you may experience pain and discomfort in your ankles, knees, lower back, and more. Concrete is a very unforgiving surface, and it’s notorious for causing aches and pains.

Because concrete is so hard, it can exacerbate existing injuries and can lead to muscle fatigue and stiffness. The cold of a concrete floor makes those effects worse, and can further aggravate issues like arthritis.

Pressure relief mats transform a concrete floor into a more forgiving surface. Because these mats have a softer surface, they encourage your muscles to stay active even when you’re standing still.

By keeping your muscles moving slightly, the mats create an anti fatigue benefit and help to relieve body pain. They also act as a buffer between your foot and the concrete floor, so you feel less pressure, might enjoy better circulation through your foot, and are even protected from the cold that the concrete floor can conduct.

Most pressure relief mats are designed to soften the effects of standing on a hard surface like concrete, and they’re ideal in kitchen, factory, warehouse settings, and more. We’ve highlighted some of the best pressure relief mats to consider below.
