The Benefits of Ergonomic Desk Footrests

Most office desks & workstations are not outfitted with ergonomic footrests. This often-overlooked accessory has many health benefits that you may not know you’re missing. Yes, a comfortable office chair is the first step to keeping your legs and back from strain, but resting your feet on the floor or allowing them to dangle all day can also cause pain or circulation problems.

A good footrest has two components: it keeps your feet at a comfortable angle (to reduce stress on the knees) and keeps your feet off the floor (to avoid pinching nerves in the legs and improve circulation. Your body is meant for motion, not 8 hours of sitting still, so many models also have a rocking element or rollers to keep your legs moving and avoid fatigue. The result is a posture and motion similar to driving a car, and will help you remain more alert and pain-free at work.

Think Green in 2013, Part 2

EON helps offices stay environmentally friendly with a large selection of green products and recycling programs.  “Greening” your office will not only help the environment, but potentially save money for you and your company. Here are some ideas for cutting down waste and saving energy in your office, as well as suggestions of eco-friendly products from EON.

ELECTRONICS

According to one source, “If every US computer and monitor were turned off at night the nation could shut down 8 large power stations and avoid emitting 7 million tons of CO2 every year.” You may be surprised to learn that even when electronics are in hibernation mode they continue using electricity, so turn devices completely off at night or use a smart power strip that can turn everything off at once.

Opt for buying office electronics that provide multiple functions because that means fewer devices to plug in.  Avoid having to replace these costly machines as often by researching their lifespans and purchasing longer warranties so you can maintain and repair them for free in the future.

Printer ink and toners are also items that create a lot of waste and expense, but through options like toner remanufacturing you can significantly cut costs on ink. Have you heard about solid ink printers?  These machines use solid, crayon-like inks without cartridges and are a technological breakthrough that will save you money and cut down on waste. Solid Ink generates up to 90% less printing waste because there are no cartridges to dispose of and less packaging to add to landfills. An added bonus of this process is prints that are glossy, slightly raised to the touch, and wont run when wet like inkjet printouts.
