As COVID-19 continues to impact life as we know it, the race to find a vaccine is on.
From the pharmacists who fill prescriptions at local pharmacies to those researching, developing, and testing new medications, all eyes are on the pharmaceutical industry.
As if the additional stress of the pandemic wasn’t enough, due to long hours standing to work, many pharmacists and technicians are experiencing increasing levels of physical pain as well.
That’s where SmartCells comes in.
At SmartCells, we believe that “Life Shouldn’t Hurt”™. This belief guided us to engineer our unique SmartCells™ Cushioning Technology which has been optimized to provide an energizing responsiveness in a soft, yet stable surface. Standing on this patented design results in an exhilarating feeling of fatigue relief.
This advanced cushioning technology consists of a rubber top layer supported by a matrix of cylindrical columns that compress and respond dynamically to surface pressure, which allows SmartCells to provide maximum fatigue relief.
SmartCells Anti-fatigue solutions are available in pre-sized mats or as a custom flooring solution for unique areas such as pharmacies, blood draw labs, and reception areas. Each SmartCells solution is specifically designed to relieve fatigue in standing workers, no matter where they work.
In fact, SmartCells Anti-Fatigue Solutions are used in a wide variety of civilian and government labs and pharmacies to keep pharmacists comfortable while they help people all day long.

In 2017, the Chief at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida reached out to SATECH requesting a SmartCells anti-fatigue solution in their main pharmacy area.
Due to the seamless design of the SmartCells cushioned flooring systems, they can be used as an underlayment with carpet or sheet vinyl installed over the top . As showcased here, the SmartCells are installed first, then an approved carpet tile is laid over the top. This creates a clean anti-fatigue solution.
For Eglin AFB, SATECH installed a 1” thick black anti-fatigue flooring solution with Interface carpet tile installed over the top. In addition, 6” wide transitions were used at all of the walk on and off areas to reduce tripping hazards. As can be seen, this installation required custom cutting and configuration around cabinetry and shelving which is why the Air Force relies on SATECH’s expertise.
As can be seen by the photos below, the completed project at Eglin AFB turned out great and the employees were eager to have SmartCells.
