History of ergonomic mats
The history ofErgonomic Mats begins withErgonomics, a work science that was established in the 19th century. Its primary task is to define working conditions corresponding to the psychophysical abilities of a human being. It is important not only to achieve the best possible results, but most of all to maintain the comfort of employees and protect them from incurring high biological costs and from contracting occupational diseases. Interestingly, one of the founders of the theory of ergonomics was a Pole, Wojciech Jastrzębowski. Therefore, it is not very appropriate that in times of universal access to information and all technical innovations, we should not continue the humanistic ambitions of our countryman and make sure that our employees feel good. The matter seems to be particularly important when we take into account that the discomfort is still felt long after returning home from work. Where is it worth starting to benefit our subordinates? One of the solutions is to familiarize yourself with the offer of ergonomic mats.
The use of ergonomic mats
Ergonomic mats, also known as anti-fatigue mats, as the name suggests, are designed to eliminate fatigue resulting from working in an unchanging body position. This mainly applies to standing positions, but also to other positions, e.g. kneeling. Muscle fatigue is mainly caused by cardiac arrest due to a tense posture. In working conditions, it is not easy to take care of regular muscle relaxation, as there is often not enough time to do so, and thoughts are focused on the best performance of the task. W tym przypadku idealnie sprawdzą się maty ergonomiczne, których nawierzchnia pozwala mięśniom dolnych kończyn na nieświadome przechodzenie od stanu napięcia do rozluźnienia. Muscle work helps to reduce pain not only in the legs, but also in the back. This in turn leads to a reduction in fatigue by about half. In this simple way, you can save employees stress, thus influencing their attitude to work and its efficiency.
