What Are Anti Fatigue Mats?

Anti-fatigue flooring is designed to reduce stress in joints and muscles, increase blood flow and decrease fatigue. This kind of ergonomic flooring comes in a wide variety of materials, thicknesses and sizes, from large rubber rolls to modular, interlocking foam tiles. However, all anti-fatigue flooring is cushioned and flexible enough to keep blood moving throughout the entire body. Shock absorption also lessens foot-to-floor impact and thus decreases strain.

People can become tired and strained after just 40 minutes of standing on a hard surface.

Anti-fatigue flooring allows people to stand for longer amounts of time with ease and comfort. Less fatigue and physical stress means greater focus, productivity and overall happier humans.
