The FM500 provides perfect support for the feet and legs to ease pressures on the lower back when sitting. With curved supports to encourage healthful rocking, the FM500 offers a surprising amount of functionality in a simple and elegant package.
Studies have shown that 70% of all women and 40% of all men have health issues such as blood clots, varicose veins and pressure on the Achilles tendon due to pooling of fluids in the lower limbs — the result of prolonged, inactive sitting. The foot machine, with its ball-bearing, roller design encourages gentle rocking of the feet in the same way a rocking chair encourages movement. This rocking motion uses most of the lower leg muscles and increases healthful circulation. The foot machine also performs as a standard foot rest, providing support for the legs and relieving pressure on the lower back.
