Anti-fatigue mats are designed to alleviate fatigue and discomfort for people who need to remain in a standing position for prolonged periods of time. Their unique design provides a wealth of health benefits, such as minimizing back pain, foot pain, weariness, and stress. The wide-range of common materials used to make anti-fatigue mats includes vinyl, wood, rubber, PVC closed cell foam, and polypropylene. Anti-fatigue mats were initially used in factories and production lines where staff had to stand for the majority of their working hours. Today, this type of ergonomic mat is commonly used during trade shows for floor covering, in hospitals and clinics during surgeries, for housekeepers, cashiers, chefs, and more.
