Have you ever heard those stories about people dying on long flights due to blood clots caused by not getting up? That can also happen at work, where you’re often sitting for long periods of time without any activity going on below the belt (what you do with your secretary is not of my concern).
To prevent fluids from pooling while you work on your TPS reports, check out the Humanscale Foot Machine with Massage Balls.
This analog under-the-desk gadget gently rocks your feet back-and-forth (at one of three different heights) to keep fluids pumping through your legs as you work. If your dogs start barking, the middle section of the foot machine is made up of massage balls, so you can keep plugging away at your desk without missing a beat.
