What Are the Benefits of an Anti-Fatigue Standing Mat

Height adjustable desks, working in an office at a standing desk, in the kitchen for an extended period of time, or working in a factory line in a warehouse or industrial facility. All these environments carrying an anti-fatigue standing mat can add a lot of comfort for a person. For kitchens, garages, offices, or even a cashier at a grocery store, here are some of the benefits an anti-fatigue standing mat brings.

It creates movement.

When we are standing for a long time, our legs are craving movement. It’s a natural instinct to want to contract our muscles. Small movements keep the blood flowing, prevents blood clots, and keeps our bodies engaged. By simply tapping your feet, pressing them into the mat, or adjusting your weight, this helps a tremendous amount in endurance.

Reduces pressure on the bottom of your feet.

If you’re coming home after a shift or a long day and your feet are feeling really beat up, that’s actually very normal. After all, you’re on your feet and all your weight is coming down on a somewhat small part of the body. With an anti-fatigue standing mat however, you’re taking pressure off this part of the body by engaging the muscles in your calves and legs. Ever so slightly, they’re expanding and contracting slightly. Overall, you’re far better supported.

Less discomfort in your legs and backs.

The University of Michigan Center of Ergonomics conducted a study on standing mats to see precisely how effective or beneficial they are. To measure their benefits, they tested portable comfort standing mats at an industrial plant on shift workers who would normally be standing on concrete floors all shift long. For those who stood on the anti-fatigue mats, they saw an average 50% reduction in fatigue and discomfort in their legs and backs! This is great news if you’re experiencing back pain or leg pain in a similar setting.

It adapts to the contours of your feet.

Looking at it, you probably wouldn’t think it makes such a sizeable difference but it really does. Stand in your shoes or boots, or go barefoot. In any case, the anti-fatigue mat adapts to your feet size. The material’s soft, the beveled edges prevent tripping, and it can also be carried to anywhere you know you’re going to have to stand for an extended period of time.

Eliminate pain, discomfort, and fatigue today. Anti-fatigue mats engage the legs and calf muscles, with subtle movements promoting an easier flow of blood to and from the heart. After even a single use, you’ll notice a significant difference in how you feel when you’re done a shift compared to what it’s like without the use of a mat. Get your anti-fatigue mat today.

Is a TV or Monitor Better for My Entertainment System – read here!

Computer monitors used to be exclusively the gamer’s choice for setting up with their console while HD TVs were reserved for home theater enthusiasts. These days, the tech is so advanced that some home entertainment systems will choose a monitor over a TV and vice versa, with gamers installing a 1080p HD television to host game play on. To find out which one is better or more appropriate for your home setup, you’ve got to weigh the pros and cons.

Why a computer monitor for a home theater

Be it curved or flat, computer monitors have many advantages. As they are more in-tune for gamers, they are sometimes more technologically advanced with things like 4K UHD resolution, high resolution gaming capability, HDMI outputs to connect consoles to, and more. Through a gaming monitor like this, you can also pair it with a monitor mount which can range from full motion to dual display setups, or mounts for three or more monitors.

Some of the drawbacks of choosing a computer monitor for a home theater system is that they aren’t necessarily ideal for a traditional living room setup. For example, monitor mounts are designed for desks, not walls. This can make installation tough. The curved monitor concept can also throw some people for a loop, when watching a movie or Netflix on it.

Why a TV for a gaming station or home theater setup

Alternatively, choosing a flat-screen can be a more diverse purchase with the capacity to accommodate a gaming console via HDMI as well as being able to handle regular TV. HD flat-screens are oftentimes less expensive than gaming monitors, which is another plus. In different sizes, they can also be placed in a bedroom, kitchen, or living room with ease. The mix of TV mounts also come in various designs and make installing a TV against a wall way easier than a computer monitor.

A drawback of a HD flat-screen TV is that you may find the quality of picture is less. Unless you want to pay a lot, 720p or 1080p is what you’ll find on most televisions. These are still HD though and to most people, it’s perfect. You don’t need 4K. That said, for other people, 4K’s their preference. Also, gaming on a TV might not have the same technology to work with resulting in several issues attempting to watch game play. If you’re not a gamer though, this evidently shouldn’t be a factor.Choosing between a TV and TV wall mount or a computer monitor and monitor mount is tough. Fortunately, PrimeCables has both as well as all the HDMI cables, gaming accessories, speaker systems, and home theater products you need. Drop on by our website to see more!

What Would You Do If You Could Work at your Laptop and Do an Exercise Bike at the Same Time – now you can!

We don’t often think about getting work done and putting yourself through a workout at the same time. These days though, active ergonomic workstations are growing in popularity. In achieving a perfect life-work balance, we combine activities whenever we can to save time. Here’s an opportunity for someone with a busy schedule and who’s unwilling to compromise their work or health.

An exercise bike desk workstation takes the ergonomic height adjustable desk craze to a whole new level. Although it may look like it’s going to be complicated to use or install, it’s not. No installation is necessary. The design itself is near-silent which is impressive considering so many exercise bikes tend to create a lot of disruption which naturally isn’t conducive to work productivity. It uses a magnetic tension tension control system, ensuring smooth movement without pause.

For this exercise bike ergonomic desk station, you’ll also find that everything’s adjustable. The desktop can be forwarded, backed up, moved up or down, and can be adjusted for a sit or standing position depending on what you’re in the mood for. You can also monitor what’s happening with your fitness while on the bike. The exercise bike carries a digital display with distance, calories burned, speed, and time.

If you’re stationery throughout the day for whatever reason and you’re concerned about the effect this is having on your health, this is a way to work on your computer, read, or write, while eliminating the requirement of you sitting there and doing nothing. You can customize your workout for personal comfort, with no pressure to overdo it. On one of these exercise bike workstations, the average person burns about 400 calories every hour. Even if you only jump on for one hour a day at about 5 times a week, that’s an extra 2,000 calories you’re going to work off.

We have a lot of responsibilities, especially with the older we get. Eventually, we’re tied down with a lot to look after – real estate, taking care of our significant other, taking care of our kids, attending school meetings, business trips, making and eating dinner, scheduling family outings and ensuring family time isn’t being forgotten, and of course, spending time with your partner ensuring they’re being treated well and that you’re maintaining these sort of connections to the people you love. The first thing that tends to go is our health. That’s how we gain weight, stop going to the gym, and sometimes get sick. Give yourself the gift of not setting your health aside. Pick up an exercise bike ergonomic desk this summer and live your best life!>>
