SmartCells Anti-Fatigue Mats Redefine Comfort for the Home and Office
Chehalis, Wash., — July 2013—
SATECH, Inc. announces an enhanced lineup of SmartCells anti-fatigue mats that add an elegant upgrade to it its highly regarded cushioning technology. The same best-practice, anti-fatigue technology trusted in industrial environments by leading companies is now available to office workers and consumers for standing desks and in-home use.
Ergonomically wise office workers have created a dramatic trend toward standing desks in the workplace in serious efforts to attain healthier, more productive lifestyles, but prolonged standing can be painful and even debilitating. Several prominent office health and ergonomic studies tout prolonged sitting as the “smoking” of our generation due to the increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and even cancer and chronic back pain that have been linked to those sitting all day at typical desk jobs. New studies suggest that standing at a properly designed desk for up to 30% of your workday is a healthier solution. Many are now asking the obvious question, ‘So, if standing is better than sitting for part of my day, what do I stand on?’
An ergonomically-designed anti-fatigue mat is an effective way to alleviate pain and fatigue associated with standing work. Producer, SATECH, Inc. has provided a solution for standing desk users. SmartCells anti-fatigue mats provide an optimized compressibility that is stable and responds dynamically to subtle and overt movements of the body. Typical soft and squishy mats do not provide the right compressibility, are often unstable, and frequently bottom-out aggravating the very problems the users are seeking to solve with a floor mat.
The new challenge standing desk users have encountered is not only finding the mat with the proper ergonomic design for their “standing” activities, but also finding one that looks good in an office or home environment.
“I went from carpet tiles to my yoga mat and eventually started stacking layers of foam that just kept getting higher and higher and looks terrible,” says Sean Airhart, a recent SmartCells convert. “The day I got my SmartCells Mat, I found immediate relief and an elegant solution…and the pain has not returned.”
The enhanced SmartCells anti-fatigue lineup redefines comfort and blends the effectiveness of SmartCells renowned anti-fatigue mats with a professional /decorative style for office and in-home use. SATECH proudly offers three different tasteful and creative surfaces: classic, basket-weave and carpet-top. The mats are available in several different variations of color and size.
SmartCells® cushioning technology consists of a rubber surface layer integrated with an underlying array of cylindrical rubber cells that soften in response to surface pressure to provide maximum fatigue relief. The SmartCells act like springs that cushion as weight is applied and then rebound when the weight shifts, which returns energy and reduces fatigue associated with standing.
“Our customers recognize that SmartCells mats not only keep you comfortable while you stand AT work but also help you conserve energy so that AFTER work you’ll want to do more than just lay on the couch,” says Bryce Betteridge, President of SATECH, Inc. “Our new product enhancements are an exciting solution for standing desk users at home or the office.”
Remaining comfortable while standing up to “sitting” has never been easier with the addition of SATECH, Inc.’s online retail store in which consumers can view the different variations of SmartCells mats, learn about the technology, and determine which solution is the best fit for them.
