TriRite Adjustable Footrest

Proper posture starts from the ground up. If you are sitting at your computer workstation with your feet dangling it is time to look for a footrest to support your feet.  Sitting with your legs unsupported can lead to back and hip discomfort and even blood pooling in your lower legs.

Here is one consideration for an ergonomic footrest.  We do not endorse any one product but rather evaluate products to help you understand what to look for.

The TriRite Adjustable Footrest is a lightweight, sturdy and easy to use adjustable footrest.
