The importance of ergonomic equipment
In these troubled times, when working from home is still the advice, the importance of working ergonomically is still essential. Ergonomics is the adaptation of the environment to the human being. Freely translated, this means adopting the right posture at work and taking enough breaks throughout the day. This is not just invented, but is even included in the law! It states that 'unless this cannot reasonably be required, workplaces shall be arranged in accordance with economic principles.'
At Podobrace the welfare of the individual is always paramount! This is why we have a wide range of products in our assortment that help you maintain a correct posture, to work ergonomically Read below which products these are:

Working ergonomically with a footrest
By using an ergonomic footrest, you give your feet a rest and improve blood circulation. The footrest is tiltable and has an anti-slip coating. Your feet will not slip and remain stable on the support. Tip: Stretch your legs regularly while working. This keeps the blood flowing and prevents fatigue. The use of a footrest significantly helps with an ergonomic workplace.
