If you sit at desk each day and have back or knee pain, a glass chair mat might be just what the doctor ordered, according to one Chair Mats of Glass client who also happens to be a physical therapist and certified athletic trainer.
“Your glass mats provide an excellent, durable surface without the risk of developing grooves or dents over time that would actually hinder chair movement and increase the strain on the knees, hips, and back,” says Lissa Trevino, president of Ocean Physical Therapy, Inc. in California.
According to many in the physical therapy, chiropractic and other related fields, a sturdy mat made of glass provides much more support for your body than does flexible vinyl or plastic mats. This reduces the strain on your muscles, joints and bones that can lead to poor posture and pain. Business professions who purchase them for their staff report higher productivity and healthier, happier employees — all factors in a better bottom line for a company.
“I had knee surgery last year and I had to stand up and lift my chair out of the caster grooves,” says Valerie P., another client who works as a court recorder. “It was just too hard on my knee to try to push out. My glass chairmat is a Godsend!”
“Because it is also solid and heavy, it supports my study chair at a constant level, and that allows my chair to lessen my back aches,” adds retired minister Bob Shuler.
And says Stacia Swartz, a corporate recruiting, staffing and placement specialist, “Far less fatigue factor with our new glass chairmat. It takes zero effort to roll.”
