The foot rest may seem like a knickknack that some people at your work just bought to look cool. But the truth is that this ergonomic product actually has a bigger purpose than aesthetics and looking cool.

And let’s be honest that position far from being an ergonomically sound.
Purpose: This ergonomically friendly product allows you to get your upper limbs in a comfortable neutral position without jeopardizing the rest! WHAT MORE COULD ONE ASK FOR!!!! That its number 1!
