Being a teacher can be tough on many levels, but there is a new problem in our education system: teacher fatigue. A recent study conducted by the Center for Disease Control found that 72.3% of workers in education services (i.e teachers) reported frequent standing on the job. As cited in the study, these long hours spent standing are associated with work-related musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, physical fatigue and muscle pain which directly and indirectly cost the US nearly $2.6 billion annually.
This is where SmartCells anti-fatigue mats can provide a solution.
SmartCells anti-fatigue mats are engineered to provide optimal levels of comfort for standing workers, like Teachers. Their unique design prevents bottoming out and combines a firmer, stable surface with cylindrical cells that get softer under impact, which creates the perfect balance for maximum comfort all day.
The unique SmartCells are spring-like, in that they cushion as weight is applied, then rebound when the weight shifts, which returns energy and reduces fatigue.
The SmartCells line of anti-fatigue mats come with an industry-leading 8-year warranty and are available in three different surface options (smooth, basket weave and carpet top) as well as three colors (Black, gray and light brown) and three sizes (2’X3’, 3’X5’ and 2’X5.5’) to best meet each teacher’s unique needs.
Here at SATECH, Inc., we believe that educating future generations shouldn’t hurt. That’s why during the months of August and September we are donating 1 SmartCells mat to a local teacher for every 3 purchased on our website.
In addition, if you know a teacher who could use a mat, tell them to visit smartcellusa.com and use coupon code “BrightFuture18” to receive 15% off one of our standard anti-fatigue mats.
