ErgoMates provide a lightweight, washable, reusable and cost-effective solution to the negative effects of working, walking and standing on hard surfaces. A mobile anti-fatigue matting system, these pads strap on to workers’ existing shoes and boots. The product’s cushioning system allows the muscles of the back, legs and feet to contract naturally as they adjust to the flexibility and give-and-take of the cushioning material. This improves workers’ circulation, reducing fatigue by as much as 50% and insulating them from the negative effects of impact shock, vibration and cold floors. They can be used by all employees who stand or walk on hard surfaces throughout their workday, or in areas where traditional matting is not practical due to constant movement of personnel and machinery. Available in four sizes for both men and women, they easily strap on to all street and safety footwear.
