The Webble ergonomic footrest is a new type of office furniture that enables your entire lower body to move while sitting.Traditionally, office ergonomics has focused on areas above the waist: eyes, arms, wrists, and back. But the latest research now tells us that lower body movement is critically important. The Webble ergonomic footrest is one of the first new products specifically designed to enhance the wellness of legs, thighs, ankles, and feet. The Problem We spend more time sitting than ever before — an increasingly serious public health concern. Prolonged time spent sitting, independent of physical activity, has been shown to have important metabolic consequences and may influence things like triglycerides, high density lipoprotein, cholesterol, fasting plasma glucose, resting blood pressure, and leptin, which are biomarkers of obesity and cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. And while we have made great strides in ergonomic task chairs, even the most advanced designs force us to remain in fixed positions for hours at a time, which places considerable stress on the back, severely restricts blood flow, and can cause tingling or numbness in the legs. The Solution The Webble provides a sweeping 360° range of free motion that enables you to move in four distinct ways: Circular motion reduces pressure in your lower back by causing the discs to shift. Side to side motion causes your hips to rotate and flexes your thighs. Forward and backward motion has a similar effect on your knees and calf muscles. And rocking up and down benefits your ankles. Combined together, this light ergonomic activity can improve flexibility, blood circulation, and posture while reducing muscle fatigue and pressure on your joints. Appropriate for any interior from home office to corporate office park, from solo desks to cubicles to wide open workspaces, the Webble’s iconic shape, spring suspension and patented mesh membrane offer the ultimate in comfort, activity, and wellness.
