How do anti-fatigue mats work?

Standing for long periods of time on hard floor surfaces can be very uncomfortable and can cause physical fatigue. Leg muscles can become totally static and constricted as they work overtime to keep that person in an upright position.

 

However, if a person is allowed to stand on an anti-fatigue mat their muscles will subtly contract and expand as they adjust to the flexibility of the mat. This type of muscle movement increases blood-flow and increase the amount of oxygen reaching the heart therefore fatigue is greatly reduced.
