Design Considerations

At first glance, some may think it's a strange design but when you learn why each feature exists you'll realize this is a one of kind, excellent ergonomic addition to office furniture options.

Leg Support DesignChair Attachment

The fact the ErgoUP attaches to your chair is the key ergonomic design consideration!  Casters are built to roll and when you're trying to stabilize your leg, you don't want it rolling around.  When a leg support stands alone your chair or your leg support can roll together or apart.  When they roll together your foot tends to dangle off the font edge, pulling your hip forward and lifting your knee off the support.  When they roll away from each other, the gap allows your knee to hyper extend which is not only lacking in support it also decreases circulation.

Floating Pad

The floating pad design literally allows for the leg support to be ergonomic for literally EVERY body.  Depending on your height, body size, injury or issue your leg will always be able to rest in an ergonomic position.

Pad Types

Three different size and two different foam options allow you to customize your ErgoUP for the ultimate comfort whether you're looking for a long term or recovery term leg support. 

Consider the Alternatives

The alternatives range in price and function but none offer the versatile yet always ergonomic positioning of the ErgoUP.  Some of these are just BAD options while others have their place.

Pros:

Could be ergonomic for a particular body size and chair height.

Cons:

Not easily moved.

Not height adjustable.

Pros:

Used as a footrest, the right foot could be positioned properly.

Cons:

The left ankle rest is decreasing circulation and increasing pressure on the artery and tendons of the ankle.

The left knee is not supported and prone to hyperextension.

Pros:

Hmmm.  It's probably cheap?

Cons:

Knees unsupported and prone to hyperextension.

Difficult to get your feet into and out of the sling while under your desk.

Pros:

Portable.

Maintains position.

Cons:

Position not adjustable to different body size.

Level surface keeps knee straight, instead of angled.

Pros:

Looks nice.

Portable.

Cons:

Casters allow the ottoman to roll away allowing knees to hyperextend or roll too close, allowing foot to dangle off the edge resulting in hip pulling forward.

Difficult to keep proper position.

Level surface keeps knee straight, instead of angled.

Pros:

Random items are easy to find, easy to replace.

Cons:

Knees unsupported and prone to hyperextension.

Difficult to keep proper position.

Lacks cushioning.

Created pressure points.
