Sitting in one spot for time on end can cause great stresses on your back, neck and legs.
Not moving your legs can be blamed for things like poor circulation including thrombosis.
One way to improve circulation to your legs is by moving them. Maybe you don’t have the time to get up and walk every few minutes but you can still move your legs and the Weeble can be swirled about on its casters in 360 degrees.

It is classed as an “ergonomic footrest” and reports uses as encouraging flexibility, increased blood circulation and improved posture.
Its ergonomic shape and mesh exterior membrane provide comfort and ease the leg and muscle fatigue normally endured when you have been seated for a long period of time.
The way it works is you can glide and twirl your legs while you remain seated at your desk. This allows you to pump the blood through your legs and wake up your brain.
Of course you don’t always have to keep moving. You can just use it as a footrest for the desk if you choose to do so. You can let it act like a normal under desk foot stool to just support and soothe your feet by resting them on the top of the Weeble.
Under desk foot stool
Do you find that your feet and legs get tired from not moving. After a few hours into your day you are grabbing a couple of phone books to prop up under your feet, then make a mess as you try and position them just right with your toes?
The Weeble is on light and versatile casters that allow for 360deg movement. So even if your legs aren’t restless and you don’t feel the need to move your legs constantly, just having the ability to make immediate and slight adjustments for your comfort is great.
And if you’re boss is worried that people are going to start buying these wheeled Weeble footrest and then use them as skateboards in the hall or zip in and out of the cubicles – well – no need to worry. The canisters will retract if there is too much force put on them.
For the home office or the corporate office this is one desk footrest worth a second look.
