How Anti-Fatigue Mats Benefit the Healthcare Industry
Most healthcare professionals need to be on their feet for long periods of time. Due to this, they may be faced with sore muscles and body fatigue. The solution to this problem is implementing anti-fatigue mats into your healthcare facility. Not only do anti-fatigue mats provide a comfortable, supportive barrier to stand on, they can fight against germs and bacteria and keep your floors protected.
Reduces Muscle Fatigue & Soreness
Anti-fatigue mats are ergonomic and designed to reduce the straining of muscles. They work by encouraging subtle movements of the legs and calves. In return, this promotes easier blood flow to the heart which can often be constricted from standing. They are made with a thick, durable, nitrile rubber surface that creates a comfortable barrier between the floor and the user’s feet. This makes these mats ideal for doctors, nurses, and other healthcare personnel who are used to standing for hours at a time.
Fights Germs & Bacteria
In a healthcare setting, the spreading of germs and bacteria can have harmful effects towards a patient or employee’s health. Anti-fatigue mats can be anti-microbial treated to prevent this from happening. This treatment will stop the germs, viruses and bacteria from being a potential hazard in the facility. The mats can also be autoclave sterilized to ensure a lifetime protection against odors and degradation.
Protects Floor Surfaces
Anti-fatigue mats are grease and oil proof and can be used in wet or dry environments. This makes them safe to use in labs and other areas where spills may occur. The mats are multi-functional because they are able to reduce fatigue and fight germs all while protecting floor surfaces. This is especially important in healthcare industries where a high volume of people is expected. Anti-fatigue mats act as a protectant in order to prevent the sometimes damaging effects of heavy foot traffic.
