The Humanscale FM500 Foot Rests, with its ball bearing rollers, encourages users to move more by rocking their feet. This rocking motion uses the lower leg muscles to increase healthful circulation.
The FM500 also offers built-in massage balls to rejuvenate tired feet. In addition, the FM500 offers three-inch height adjustment for custom positioning. Our foot machines also raise the feet to relieve pressure on the lower back when sitting.

I was going to go with the bar as my footrest, less expensive but certainly looked like it’d do the job. But at the last second I decided to go with the humanscale foot rest and am super happy I did. It’s visually appealing, I use it not just with my lean stool but also as a Achilles stretch or leg muscle exercisers. I’m very impressed with it all. I’ve always “demanded to stand “ at work and now I point everyone to standing desk nation to make their dream come true too.
