Many medical professionals, such as pharmacists and nurses, often find themselves on their feet for the majority of the day. Our ergonomic healthcare anti-fatigue mats are especially designed to provide support during long hours of work. They feature unmatched anti-fatigue properties enabling workers to stand comfortably for prolonged periods, as well as hygienic, easy-to-clean standing surface.
Leading international research in Denmark (Centre for sensory-motor interaction at Aalborg University) has provided evidence of discomfort, stress and repetitive strain while standing on hard surfaces without the use anti-fatigue and or medical mats.
Short-term consequences without standing on anti-fatigue medical mats on hard surfaces are
Impaired blood circulation
Swelling in the veins
Loss of 100% concentration
Long term Consequences are as proven.
Chronic loss of blood circulation causing rapid onset of Arthritis
Damaged muscle functions from feet to lower back
Reduced spine elasticity
Lab, Pharmacy and Medical Mats are recommended to solve the problems associated with all the above.
In addition to providing a supportive, comfortable barrier to stand on, anti-fatigue mats can also protect against the growth of bacteria and moulds. The following are the most significant benefits of anti-fatigue mats to the healthcare industry:
Ergonomic anti-fatigue mats are designed to reduce muscle strain. They work by stimulating subtle movements of muscles in the legs and calves, relieving pressure points on bottom of feet allowing better blood flow, thus promoting easier blood flow to the heart.
Protects Against Germs and Bacteria
Any healthcare setting is susceptible to the spread of bacteria and germs. In the event of cross-contamination, the patient or worker’s health is at risk. Our anti-fatigue mats have a built-in anti-microbial treatment that prevents the growth and spreading of mould, mildew, airborne pathogens, and bacteria.
Protects Floor Surfaces
Our anti-fatigue mats have non-slip properties in wet, dry and oily environments. These properties make them suitable for labs and other areas prone to spills.
