"I've only had it for about 2 weeks. We have travertine tile in our kitchen and standing and doing hours of food prep does a number on my feet. I have foot problems and so long term use will tell me a better story. BUT - I can definitely tell the difference in the amount of comfort it gives. My feet are not nearly as stressed after standing for long periods. When I go back and forth from the mat to the tile, I can feel the hardness of the tile. The mat is not spongy and I don't sink into it, which is nice. I feel supported by the mat. "
“I placed one mat in each of our 10 areas that have order pickers. They like the fact that their feet feel less tired at the end of the day.”
-Toyota Distribution Manager
"I love my mat. I work at a desk all day long and spend 90% of the time standing. I can't sit for more than an hour because of herniated disks in my back. The mat has made a huge difference in my comfort. My feet don't hurt anymore. Thanks for making a great product!"
-Elaine, Director of Operations
"I was skeptical at first when my wife found your product on the Internet. I guess she was listening more then I gave her credit for when I complained that my feet & legs were hurting from time to time after being in my wood shop all day. I tried my old steel toed work boots but after a few hours they got noticeably heavier than I remember. She mentioned your mats and I told her not to bother because I would figure something out as I normally do.
Well a few days later, two of your Smartcell mats arrived. I was a little upset that she went ahead and spent the money but after laying them down and using them, Man what a difference! I could wear my "regular" shoes and say Good-by to leg & foot fatigue. The SmartCells mats really made a difference. . . A big difference. Well worth the slightly higher cost compared to my overall comfort. Well worth it."
-Dorald, Anti-fatigue Consumer
"I definitely noticed the difference immediately. My legs aren’t sore at the end of the day and it doesn’t matter which shoes I wear! It makes a huge difference, our floors are concrete and I really needed the higher quality mat. Thanks!”
– Gretchen, Project Manager
"I am very much enjoying my SmartCells mats. I now stand all day at my computer and the mat makes a tremendous difference to how I feel. Almost feels like my legs are being energized as I work. A lot of colleagues are coming by to check it out.
Thanks for making such a great product."
-Vicky, Anti-fatigue customer
"I bought a standing desk but discovered the first day that I needed a mat to prevent foot discomfort. I wear dress shoes all day which are not the best for standing long periods no matter how much you spend on them.
After looking at several mat alternatives I decided that the SmartCells technology appeared to be more sound than simple foam or gel that gets compressed or displaced by weight. I can say that I am very pleased with the outcome after using it for a month or so. I do not feel like my feet are on a hard surface noticing some give and take as I shift around. I do eventually get tired of course but it's not because of foot pain. If I had it to do over again, I would buy the same product.
I'll also add that I purchased the carpet version since I work in a professional office and it complement the decor very well.
-Jim, Anti-fatigue Consumer
"The anti-fatigue mats are working out really well. They are very durable and are perfect for our environment. I’m sure we will be ordering more."
-Compliance Specialist – LEGOLAND
"I have been "testing" these for the past several weeks. To be honest, I received them at no charge IF I would write a review after wearing them. I have worn them in my shop, which is a concrete floor, and I was very impressed. I figured that since these insoles were so thin, they couldn't possibly provide any noticeable comfort. Boy was I wrong. Although they aren't as comfortable as the SmartCells floor mats I have, they are a very close second to them. The "real test" I gave them was going with my wife to THE MALL. Although not the Mall of America, it is a close second. Throughout the "Death March," my feet held up wonderfully. Usually I look for the bench to sit with the other Senior Men sentenced to The March but not so on this excursion. I was right there along side my better half proudly holding her purse as she tried on everything. Thank You SmartCells for very comfortable feet . . . I think. Seriously these insoles are a great product and highly recommended be ME!"
"I consider it a must. My feet never hurt at the end of the day no matter long I stand. Highly recommended."
– FurnitureLab employee
"The mats are great! They are very sturdy, and we like having the carpet on top. We have them in our kitchen and the carpet helps to absorb the water droplets. They are also easy to clean since they can be vacuumed."
"I am enjoying my new SmartCells mat very much. I couldn’t use my standing desk without the mat!"
"Yes, the staff are satisfied - the matts are being used by our reception staff and they have noticed a difference (their feet and calves are not sore at the end of the day). Thanks very much!"
" The mats are amazing, my knees and feet dont hurt as before when I have to stand for long periods of time in the kitchen.
Thank you for your product, it was what I was looking for!"
"With the SmartCells insole I have gone 6+ hours without my feet getting tired. ...my dress shoes feel just as good as a casual shoe."
"I love, love, love my mat. In this picture, you can see me at the office in front of my multi-table standing desk. The combo is amazing. I probably stand and work for 6-8 hours of day and my knees feel great. Thank you for an excellent product. I'd love to try the insoles."
-Brian, CloudLock Inc.
"My table tennis training is back in full speed. I've got a jumping pad from SmartCellsUSA (check them out) that keeps the bottom of my feet from getting sore and lets me get back into my full routine. Hallelujah. They have great insoles too which I use when playing round robins or tournaments. Concrete gym floors are can be a pain."
-Susan, Anti-fatigue consumer
"The mats are working out great for us. They do make a big difference while standing. I have recommended them to several other people in the organization.Thanks again for the great product."
-Brenda, James City County
"I am definitely satisfied with the mat. I just transitioned from a sitting desk to a stand-up desk based on doctor’s recommendations and the mat is great… I asked my office to special order this mat after researching what was available from our standard vendors which was laughable compared to your technology."
"Sound to Narrows 12k! SmartCells pulled me through, no foot or knee pain. Love my SmartCells insoles!"
-Bryce, SmartCells Customer
“We purchased five mats for our bucket trucks and the men really like the feel and how heavy duty they are. Also, the heavier weight compared to our old mats is nice because they don’t slide in the bottom of the buckets. Thank you!”
– Bryan, Grand Island Utilities
"I put the Smart cells anti-fatigue insoles in my tennis shoes and within the first three minutes I knew they would work. I have tried “a lot “ of [other] insoles and I am always so disappointed for the way they feel and cost, but this time… They feel good! The relief of the pressure and ache on the balls of my feet was relieved right away. They're comfortable and very supportive and I love them.
I need two more!
Thanks for the Relief."
"[Our workers are] ...grateful for theSmallCells anti-fatigue mats we recently received from SATECH. We ordered 2 more right away."
-Dean, Production Manager
"I have really enjoyed the mat. I use it mainly so that I can exercise with my students in class - jogging on the spot and doing jumping jacks. I have really appreciated it so far."
-Sharon, Anti-fatigue Consumer
"I love this mat. It was recommended to me by two of my co-workers and they were so right!! It works great with my standing desk!"
"I like the alien softness underfoot and tend to stand on mine in bare feet so I can feel the slight 'give' in the surface. It's much more comfortable than simply wearing padded shoes. If I was based in the US I'd have no hesitation in ordering up a couple of square metres of this stuff for my gym and my office, but shipping it to Oz does come with extra expense."

"We've had our SmartCells mats for over a month now, and we are very pleased with the mats and with the customer service we received from SATECH. The mats get a lot of use in our small kitchen area. We prefer home-cooked food to restaurant options, so we spend a lot of time standing on the mats while we prep and cook delicious meals. The SmartCells anti-fatigue technology has made a big difference--no more sore backs after long cooking projects! The mat in front of the refrigerator has already kept us from breaking several dropped jars, which has saved money, cleanup time, and cut fingers. I also use a SmartCells Octagonal mat in front of the standing workstation I improvised on the shelf of a tall bookcase. The small mat provides big comfort when I am working, and it easily slides out of the way when not in use.
We selected standard black mats because we knew our four large dogs would walk on them and lay on them all the time. It's easy to clean the SmartCells mats. Unlike other rugs and mats we have tried over the years, the talon-like toenails of our two Weimaraners do not catch on or unravel our SmartCells mats.
-Gary and Mary, Anti-fatigue consumers
"About 4 months ago, I converted my desk into a standing desk and have been looking for ways to reduce the fatigue associated with standing for extended periods of time. I previously purchased a foam anti-fatigue mat and was disappointed with how poorly it performed. After much research, I discovered SmartCells anti-fatigue mats and decided to give them a try. I have been using my SmartCells mat for about two months and I have definitely noticed a difference. I am now able to stand for longer periods and enjoy my standing desk to its full potential."
-Kyle, Anti-fatigue consumer
"[The SmartCells insoles]... feel like less cushion than like a new pair of running shoes, ... that is good.
I just finished reading "Born to Run" in December. One of the ideas in that book is "less is more", and your feel muscles get weak with too much support. I think the fact that SmartCells absorb shock without to much give is great.
I plan to run at least 1 race per month in 2014 include 4 Half Marathons and 1 or 2 Marathons on these SmartCells."
“I recently had lower back surgery and decided to convert to a standing desk to reduce the pressure on my spine. I found it very tough to stand on the carpeted floor for my entire working day as my feet would ache. But then I started to use the SmartCells Anti-Fatigue Mat. What a difference it made - standing never felt so good. And the upper back neck pain I was having from sitting all day – gone! No more expensive Chiro for me. I would recommend the SmartCells Anti-Fatigue Mat to any office worker converting to a standing desk.”
-Garth, Managing Director
"The flooring has really reduced my complaints about fatigue and back pain, and we really have had no issues for several years now.”
-Pharmacy Manager at Kaiser
"The SmartCells are by far the most cushioning insoles I have ever tried and I think they are fantastic."
-Matt, SmartCells Insoles Customer
"My husband is an avid woodworker but standing on the hard cement floor of
his workroom really takes a toll on his legs. Since receiving the SmartCells
anti-fatigue mat for his birthday, he has been able to spend more time doing
what he loves."
"Everything's going really well with [the SmartCells mats]. My coworker, Katie, and I are big fans. She was a big "soft foam" fan but has since totally changed her mind. Thanks again, they're great!”
– Evan & Katie from The Editorium @ Mullen
"I cook everything from scratch and so stand in the kitchen a LOT. I noticed a couple of years ago that it was really hurting my feet and also my back, and it occurred to me that getting some kind of a mat might help. I went online and started researching. I think what convinced me about SmartCells was knowing Disney uses them, so I bit the bullet and bought a 2’ x 3’ mat. It has held up really well and has made a tremendous difference! It takes a lot longer for me to get tired and my back and feet feel much better now. Well worth the money.
I have a young friend who is a sous-chef in a restaurant. I was horrified to learn that the restaurant provided nothing whatsoever beyond a concrete floor for its kitchen workers. I am not usually this extravagant with birthday gifts, but I couldn’t stand the thought of what that was doing to his body and bought him the same mat a little over a month ago, and he says it’s great.
Thanks for a great product,"
-Jeanne, Anti-fatigue Consumer
"This is a firm mat but that's why it feels better. The suggestion to kneel on the mat really helped me understand just how responsive the mat is. The truest result, though, was after a full week of using this mat, it was clearly working way better than any of the foam mats I tried. The foam mats hurt my legs and feet after an hour. SmartCells keep me standing comfortably all day. So kudos to you guys – this idea makes a ton of sense."
"We love our new SmartCells anti-fatigue mat. Seems like we never get out of the kitchen nowadays - and its not because we love doing dishes. We wish all our floors felt like this."
-Pete & Veronica, Anti-fatigue Consumer
"The [SmartCells] mat, is incredible. It has made such a difference in my ability to handle a standing desk. When I first raised my desk, I swore I made a horrible mistake, and felt I just changed one health issue for another. Once I got the mat in, that opinion changed. The pain in my right knee is gone. I stand for an average of 4 hours a day. I rarely feel a need to sit down. The mat has made such a huge difference in my day-to-day work. Thanks for such a great product."
"They [SmartCells Insoles] work beautifully and are easy to use."
"I have run over 100 miles on the SmartCells Insoles and they feel great!"
-Mike, Anti-fatigue consumer, Marathon Enthusiast

-Lisa, Clinical Pharmacist, UW Medical Center
“The [bucket truck] mats that I ordered are a big hit... better durability.”
-William, Line Supervisor

-Jim, Washington State Patrol
"It is great! I definitely notice a difference. I am able to stand at my computer for hours at a time without much fatigue to speak of. My feet feel better too."

– Ly, Lee Office Supplies
"[SmartCells] makes standing and working a lot easier. I used to sit at my desk all day; now I am standing and working at least 5 to 6 hours a day; sometimes 8-9 hours."
"I am loving my new mat and have suffered for years from back, neck, and feet problems. I am on my feet as a pharmacist on average 10 hours per day and I have noticed a big difference in the way I feel when I go home at night. I honestly thought it was a coincidence the first few days but every day that passes, my legs don't ache as much and I feel generally better! I absolutely love it and it probably won't be long before the other pharmacists I work with buy a few more. Thank you for an excellent product!!! I'm a believer, would love more people to know about it!"
"The mats and runners are great, everyone loves them! I can really tell a difference with these mats over other ones. I am a big guy (6' and 300 lbs) and my feet, knees, and back would kill me by the end of the day."
-Richard, Warehouse Employee
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my Smart Cell insoles. They have held up great, have helped my feet not hurt after walking all day, plus I can feel the rebound from the soles creating a unique feeling. I do not hurt in my lower back or knees as much either."
-Stephen, EHS Analyst
"The SmartCells floor mat is the best. I just used it for a day, and can tell the difference."
-Samantha, LEED® AP Senior Associate
"I/We are very satisfied with our anti-fatigue mat. They are working out just like [SATECH] said they would. I am thankful that you had what I needed and for your service . Yes it has made a big difference on my legs. I would highly recommend these mats to family and friends."
"This product is amazing! I just had tile laid on my kitchen floor, and after a couple of days, I realized how jarring it was on my joints. I purchased a 'store' version of a gel mat, but it just didn't hold up very well, and it was quite small. After going on the web, and doing some research, I found SmartCells, and read all of the reviews. They are even better than stated! I am on my feet a lot, and I never feel fatigued on those mats. I wish that your product came in knee pads! Thank you for a wonderful product, and just as importantly, thank you for the customer service I received from your company. I won't hesitate to purchase more products from your company!"
"I'm really loving the mat and am so glad I upgraded. It's definitely not as soft as I expected, but given how my feet feel at the end of the day, I don't really care. "
"We are happy with the way it looks and we can feel a difference on standing on it all day."
"Everybody that is wearing the insoles are pleased with the results and comfort. ... I will want to offer them to the balance of my crew."
"I love the mat. I have back and neck issues, so standing helps relieve the pain & the mat helps reduce fatigue on my legs allowing me to stand all day. I am completely satisfied with the product don’t have a single complaint about the mat. I’ve been sharing your company’s info with everyone else at work with standing workstations."
-Mitch, Anti-fatigue Consumer
"Love it. It’s fantastic on my feet, legs and back.
"The [SmartCells] anti-fatigue mat has been working very well for me. I'm so glad I found this product- it leaves my feet and legs feeling much better, after 8 hours on them, than the foam mat I was using before."
"I think your mats are great! Much easier on my body when I'm standing at the sink chopping and prepping food for a long time. But how I know it's really good is when my cat and dog both choose to sit or lie on them now instead of the hard floor while they wait for me!!"
"Installation has been completed and the installers that you sent were very hard-working, courteous, and knowledgeable. They did a professional job and the matting looks outstanding. We have found it much easier to clean and maintain than our setup before. Thanks for your help!"
-Officer, US Coast Guard Cutter
"I do notice at the end of the day an improvement in how my back and legs feel (I have a standing desk which I use for my entire 8 hour work shift). Put me down as a satisfied customer. Thanks!”
"My energy has increased drastically, and overall especially when I'm working on my feet. My ankles were less tired, and my overall energy for the day was increased because of the [SmartCells] insoles. I would highly recommend these insoles."
"I think the mat is great! I'm definitely more comfortable throughout the day with it than without it!”
"Thank you for your personal attention to my SmartCells anti-fatigue insoles order. I LOVE my SmartCells insoles! Great performance, no problems, superior product IMO."

- John Balotsky, C.P.M., NAFC Procurement & Materials Manager
“The SmartCells Anti-fatigue Mat is the best mat I’ve used in over 30 years as a pharmacist. It looks and performs as well as the day it was installed over 5 years ago (2006). The mat stays in place and doesn’t shift around on the floor. What I like best is going home after a long (or 12 hour) shift with no foot, leg or back discomfort. The SmartCells Mat is a champ!”
- Cindy Widmaier, Pharmacist
"The anti-fatigue mat is excellent!! A while back, I had it installed at the ticket counter – wall to counter-- and it has proven to be very durable and it remains in good condition. It has worked out fabulously. No tripping hazards or always having to rearrange the mats. The agents love it and that is what really counts... and it was so easy to install."
-Airline Station Manager
“Within just a matter of days, team members were raving about the new mats and platforms. We continue to hear nothing but positive feedback from our employees.

- Loss Prevention Manager, Grocery
“I recently switched from a traditional desk to one with a stand up workstation option. I soon discovered my feet and legs were feeling fatigued by the end of each day. The Smartcells mat has been a great solution to help reduce this foot and leg fatigue and works well in a professional setting.”

“Great Product and Great Service”
- Airline CSR
“I am happy to say the SmartCells mat I purchased has offered profound relief for me. I have a herniated disc in my back and as part the recovery process, I was told to convert to a standing work station. I quickly began to have pain in my ankles, knees, hips and I believe that it was making the pain from my herniated disc somewhat worse in my lower back. I finally made the decision to find an anti-fatigue mat and came across some reviews on the SmartCells mat that convinced me to give it a try. The first day I stood on it, the difference was night and day. I have experienced incredible relief from the joint pain that had been keeping me from progressing through my physical therapy. I have been using the SmartCell anti-fatigue mat for over a month now and have been extremely happy with it. ”
“WE LOVE THE MAT! ”
- Tanya, Ome Banjos

- Ryan, Safety Manager
“After standing behind a chair for more than 20 years and standing on mats for more years than I can count, I have finally found one that lives up to its claims – SmartCells®.

As I said before it has been a pleasure to work with you and your company.”
“Your product is pretty amazing; the complaints from employees have basically been reduced
“I have worked with SATECH to establish a more comfortable atmosphere for my employees in departments where long periods of standing have caused injury or morale issues. Their product is great and well received by employees. It’s a morale boost and worth the long-term investment. SATECH is professional and efficient. I encourage you to look into this product.”
- Manager, Retail
“I work in a warehouse which requires standing in one place, smile and eagerly promote a product, which is difficult when you are in agony from the waist down. The first couple of years [I used a variety of different mats], I even started piling them on top of each other, with no relief and making no difference in the pain my knees and legs were in. Then one day I had to replace someone at another warehouse and noticed my legs were not bothering me. I looked down at the mat and saw SmartCells. Genius! That day changed my world! Needless to say, I wasted no time in purchasing this SmartCells mat. Now, running errands or a walk in the park after work is no longer a horror.”
“Our teammates work better on these mats. SmartCells’ mats definitely make a difference.”
- Sharon, EHS Lead – Aerospace

Now I’m pain-free everywhere and everyone envies my posture. Thank you guys!”
- Ben, Institutional Giving Manager – Trust for Public Lands

“I work at a standing desk 10+ hours a day. For the last year, I have tried numerous solutions to relieve leg and back fatigue. I went from carpet tiles to my yoga mat and eventually started stacking layers of foam that just kept getting higher and higher. The day I got my SmartCells Mat, I had immediate relief. I’ve been using it for one month now and the pain has not returned. I’ve raved so much about the SmartCells mat that my office mates are all switching over – and loving it!”
- Sean, LEED® AP Senior Associate / Photography Manager

"I love your product! Easy to install with very clear directions and exact measured tiles. My 87 year old mother has them in her shower and feels very safe with them. They are soft on her feet and non-slippery when wet. This is the perfect product for making showers safer."
"I received the tiles for my new shower floor yesterday. I installed them this morning and it was so easy. No rubber mallet or any other tools were required. The tiles were perfectly cut and labeled to the chart and they fit like a glove. I am very happy with this product."
"My wife and I recently learned about anti-fatigue mats in my brother's apartment. We did some research and decided on a SmartCells Anti-Fatigue mat for the kitchen. We can really feel the difference when standing in front of the sink for extended periods of time. I won't say that we fight for the right to do the dishes, but the added comfort from the SmartCells Anti-Fatigue mat is greatly appreciated."
“I definitely feel the difference, and realize how bad the old ones were”
“The old mats were hard. Now I am more comfortable. Much better!”
“My feet are happier than before. The old mat was like standing on concrete.”
"My fatigue mat is amazing!"
