KoolTools: Height and Angle FootRester
No matter how you slice it, people are built differently. It's important for people to be not only comfortable but to support their body in the right way. Part of that is foot position, and having your feet, legs and body at the right angles.
If you are looking for a footrest to attain a proper ergonomic position while at work, the WorkRite Ergonomics' Height and Angle FootRester may be your answer. The FootRester has both height and angle adjustment that locks into place automatically. And, the platform rocks back and forth to change with your body position.
The platform is 23 inches wide and 11 ? inches deep, and it is adjustable in increments of 1 inch from 4 inches to 15 inches of maximum height from the floor. The FootRester is constructed of a heavy gauge steel frame and 3/8-inch thick composite plastic that can withstand tough use.
We've used the FootRester for a few months, and found it to increase comfort and improve the ergonimic position. Better yet, it only took a day or so to be so comfortable with it, that we forgot about it. Height and Angle FootRester weighs 15 lbs.
