Shopper+ has affordable footrests.

Bought this one a month or so ago for 25$ on sale (now 30$).

I used an ottoman before which was probably too high and not ergonomic, but if you need a footrest that can be set to a higher height there's this.

Have not tried this one but sort of contemplated it due to it being height adjustable, but also still affordable.

This is a rocking footrest so it allows you to place your feet at different angles to encourage circulation, So your feet don't have to be perfectly horizontal all of the time. You can rock it back and forth like a rocking chair which also encourages circulation and allows your muscles to move while sitting all day

For shorter people, it does help too so you can raise your chair higher so that your arms can be lower when you are typing, A lot of problems occur when people have their keyboard/mouse too high

I find having your feet on an angle is just more comfortable, period.



btw: There was a 30% off coupon the WHOLE summer at the humanscale site, and when the item was in-stock, I actually got it for $66. So I bought a second one. I bought the first one at Staples for 20% off

RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Does grand and toy ever offer coupons? I signed up for their email, hoping for something I can use to buy this.

For some reason they had it for $93 when I ordered. In the spring, the price of these things hovered around $110 at every retailer when supply was plentiful.

$173 is not really the regular price. But this deal at $75 is very good. I got lucky with my $66 price.

Got the confirmation! I'm guessing it takes time. Probably a person is needed to process the order.

Received today - extremely satisfied with quality and product itself. Have to get used to not ''pushing'' myself away from my desk from my feet not being flat, but at 70$, I feel this is a worthwhile BIFL ergonomic piece of equipment.

they do about the same thing.

This one is made of metal and wood, and it is height adjustable whereas the Amazon one isn't. This one works a bit differently, the platform is on wheels which allows it to rock back and forth on its track. There are lots of reviews for the Amazon one that says it pivots too easily. I find the Humanscale one seems to stay at your preferred angle until you move your foot deliberately to change the angle.
