When do you need an ergonomic footstool?
In STEP 6 of
You raise the height of your chair when you find your shoulders hunched up when working on your desk. If your shoulders are hunched up, the desk is too high for you.
You can either adjust the height of your desk or your chair. Given that most desks are of a fixed height, usually the office chair's height is adjusted instead.
This is especially common for people who are not tall.
This is when you'll need a foot rest.
Most likely your feet will no longer be flat on the ground when you raise the height of your chair, so be sure to get a footstool that enables you to get the 90 degree angle of your knees
when you are working at your desk.
The Difference Between An Ordinary Footrest and an Ergonomic Foot Rest?
An ergonomic foot rest has height adjustable abilities.
An ordinary footrest or footstool has a fixed height, which is a problem because it can't provide the angles for the ideal work posture.
An alternative is to use a number of phonebooks, adjusting the number used to achieve that '90 degree angle' with your knees.
