What is a Comfort Mat?

What is a Comfort Mat?

Comfort mats are designed to prevent stress, cramps, and muscle strain that may otherwise be felt when standing on a hard floor surface for many hours at a time. These mats are designed with comfort in mind, providing a soft compressible surface that allows the feet to sink-in for added ergonomic support. In doing so, these mats gently stimulate the muscles of the feet, legs, and lower back. Comfort mats are recognized as essential tools for improving many facets of operations, particularly employee health, safety, and satisfaction.

Creating Comfort with Mats

Customer Service. Comfort mats are most popular in settings where staff members spend a majority of their time on their feet and interacting with customers or guests. By making the environment more comfortable for standing upright, these ergonomic mats make it easier to remain focused, productive, and cheerful despite long work hours. Bars, hotel check-ins, and customer service kiosks are just a few of the most popular applications.

Industrial Settings. Comfort mats play a crucial role in manufacturing centers, along assembly lines, and in laboratories as well. In these settings, ergonomic matting can significantly reduce the incidence of debilitating workplace injury. That’s an important goal to attain, since the rate of injuries due to overexertion has risen steadily since 2012 according to the 2016 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index.

Security Checkpoints. Ergonomic comfort matting is ideal for security booths, stations, and checkpoints as well. By alleviating discomfort and fatigue, comfort mats make it easier to remain focused and alert to potential threats. Perhaps you have noticed these mats used by TSA at nearly every airport security checkpoint in the U.S.—most commonly, these checkpoints use a diamond plate anti fatigue mat with yellow safety border that enhances visibility among crowds.
