Using a footrest is another important piece of the puzzle in maintaining good health in the workplace. The advantage of using an adjustable wobble board as a footrest is that it provides an elevated platform on which to rest the legs and alleviate pressure from the back of the leg. The mobility of the wobble board also helps to eliminate stiffness from the joints and muscles in our legs. The wobble board can be more than a footrest, too: stand on it while talking on the phone. This will add an active component to your day and also enhance your balance and proprioception.
