    So how do these work?

      I think you do headstands on them so it takes the load of your feet.

      Same as an office chair - softer and more comfortable than a wooden chair. Absorbs impact as you move around (constant minor movements), reduces the fatigue in your legs. At home I just use a camping mat, which does the same job.

        I have several fatigue mats I use in the kitchen. They are great for when you are standing up doing a bit of prep work or stirring at the stove. Not only are they soft underfoot but they stop your feet getting cold from hardwood floors or tiles. Also good for “bounce” if you drop something off the bench. I got mine from Costco.

      I got one a while back, didn't really do much.

      It makes standing in bare feet more comfortable (not that I was uncomfortable without it) and you can kneel on it.

      I'd probably avoid it unless you have a specific problem it might fix.

      Currently I use it for VR to stand on so it acts as a kind of guide to where my feet are moving to.

        Thanks. It will hide the melted candle wax on the carpet…. Problem fixed.

      I've found it definitely does work. Especially when you're new to standing to work. Think of the difference of sitting on a wooden chair and sitting on an office chair. Reduces the impact on your legs, so it's easier to do four hours up, four hours down.

      Yes, I had a very similar mat at the office with a sit/stand desk. It made a huge difference for me as we had wood flooring with heavy duty (very) low-pile commercial carpet over that. These kinds of mats can often be found for nearly $100 so at this price it's a no-brainer. Plus, if you're using it for work it should be 100% deductible as it can be readily argued to be for OH&S purposes.

      If you are standing on your feet for the entire 8 hour period, you will absolutely feel the difference.
      I bought this one from Bunnings early last year when I was building my homeoffice.

      My partner works in hospitality he has one in his cafe, he bought the one from williams Sonoma that one has lasted ages…. swears by it … but he’s on his feet 10 hours a day

      makes using a standing desk much more comfortable for me - i end up standing a lot longer.

    •  

      I stand on one of these at work and can confirm that they make a huge difference.

    Similar available at lincraft (in melb cbd at least) for $15

      Will look at these. Will be interested to see the size and thickness.

    Replace your car floor mats with these and never microsleep again!

      but what will they put on the billboards then…?

      • +2 votes

        "Stop looking at billboards when you should be concentrating on staying in your lane, not veering all over the road and doing 10+ km/h below the speed limit in the fast lane"? Might need a large-ish billboard for that, of course.

    $40 does not seem like a bargain at all.

    I just repurposed an old exercise mat. Folded it in half, double the cushion, thicker than anti fatigue mat.

      I am doing the same thing. Wondering it it is worth spending nearly 6 times price for it?

      • +1 vote

        I've tried the one at Costco. It is worth it if you want it to look nice and are constantly moving around on it as the Costco one is made of much more durable rubber. As far as cushioning the exercise mat folded in half has more cushioning especially when you're barefoot.

  •  

    Costco Perth has a similar kitchaid mat for same price. I dont know if the quality is the same. It is a joy to stand on and i hope they have more in stock when i go back next time..

    •  

      I have three in a row, one for the stove, bench and sink.

  •  

    Costco has ones with designs as well around the same price

  •  

    I paid $135 for my Vari one which I really like just for comparison.
