Foot, leg and back pain resulting from long days of standing and working is one of the most common causes of physical fatigue in the workplace. In fact, apart from headaches, lower back pain is the largest cause of pain.
Standing for long periods of time on hard floor surfaces is very uncomfortable and causes physical fatigue. Leg muscles become totally static and constricted, as they work overtime to keep that person in an upright position. Blood flow is greatly reduced, causing pain and discomfort.
In this situation, the employees' heart is forced to work harder to pump blood through these constricted areas and the body begins to run out of energy. However, if a person is allowed to stand on an anti-fatigue mat or floor system, their muscles will subtly contract and expand as they adjust to the flexibility of the mat.
This muscle movement increases blood-flow and the amount of oxygen reaching the heart, resulting in reduced fatigue.
