EMI Posture Standard


Anti-fatigue mats are mats designed to reduce fatigue caused by standing for long periods on a hard surface (e.g., cement floors). Fatigue-reducing mats can be made of various materials including rubber, carpeting materials and vinyl. Discomfort, tiredness, and sore feet, legs, knees or hips after long hours of standing are the combined effect of several factors, namely the design of the work, the workers’ footwear, and the flooring material. According to scientific data, standing for long periods of time is particularly stressful and fatiguing.

For this reason, it is essential to select the correct form of anti-fatigue matting. When choosing a mat, consider the following:

  • Know the purpose of the mat. Anti-slip or other mats are not the same as anti-fatigue mats. Choose a mat that matches your needs best.
  • The thickness of the mat. Softer and thicker may not always be better. Choose a mat that provides some elasticity, but at the same time is not so soft that a person feels they cannot stand comfortably.
  • Know the environment the mat will be used in.
  • Mats should not slip, or create a trip hazard.
  • Mats should have sloped edges (sloped edges are less of a trip hazard, and allows carts to roll over them more easily)
  • Mats may need to be cleaned. In some areas, such as food preparation, being able to adequately clean the mats will be important.
  • Is there an ESD requirement.
  • Are the mats going into a cleanroom environment etc.

Description

Exceptionally soft and comfortable anti-fatigue mats for standing workers in primarily static positions with limited lateral movement making it ideal for sit-stand desks and individual standing workstations. The rebound of the foam results in an energizing bounce effect that stimulates automatic balance checks to improve posture and constant micro movements to maintain blood flow.

Made from a durable closed cell foam that is reputed for its ultimate comfort and longevity properties, the naturally resilient material moulds to the foot to spread the weight and reduce pressure points from the hard floor underneath. All four sides have bevelled edges to minimize tripping hazards. Loose lay with no installation required.
