Esd Anti-fatigue Mats

Jul 04, 2018

What is the anti-fatigue principle of esd anti-fatigue mats?


When a person stands on a hard ground for a long time, the leg muscles are easily strained and contracted, causing varicose veins. Long-term varicose veins encourage people to spend more energy to stay in a state of standing, because the body quickly becomes fatigued and the work efficiency decreases. A comfortable working environment can effectively improve work efficiency and human health index. For example, anti-fatigue mats, elastic materials can subtly transfer the weight of the human body, promote the relaxation of the leg muscles, relieve the pressure of the blood circulation of the feet and the fatigue of the legs caused by standing for a long time, and prevent the blood from being unsmooth. Varicose veins, which reduce the body's fatigue by more than 50%, improve work efficiency by more than 35%, and provide unparalleled long standing support.

Another problem that has been faced in recent years is: "Is there any test to prove that the anti-fatigue pad works?" The short answer is "Yes." There are quantitative and qualitative studies here.

Quantitative research The most frequently cited quantitative studies were demonstrated by Loughborough University. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of participants in leg muscle activity on a hard floor and standing on an anti-fatigue pad.

The results showed that participants who stood on the mat had more than 50% muscle movement, which greatly reduced fatigue. Some tests, which simply measure the skin temperature of a standing worker, indicate that the skin temperature of workers standing on hard floors is higher than that of workers standing on anti-fatigue pads. This indicates blood stagnation in the extremities. From this it can be guessed that the discomfort felt by these participants is related to blood stasis in the limbs rather than muscle fatigue. These results further demonstrate the reliability of muscle motor theory, the relationship between muscle movement and fatigue reduction. If a person's muscles are forced to stay still and in a completely vertical state, the blood will stagnate.
