Believe it or not a good footrest does more than just give your feet a place to rest if your chair is longer than your legs. They take pressure off your legs and can help prevent blood clots from forming when sitting for extended periods of time. They can also help decrease swelling in your legs and feet. And they help with varicose veins while taking pressure off your back. The best footrests will be comfortable and encourage active sitting. Some of the most important features include a textured surface because it doubles as a massager, adjustable height, and portability. A footrest that can tilt is very nice, but may be hard to find. A no-slip bottom is essential.
