The steel base ensures a sturdy and stable construction. The aluminium column conceals the gas spring and the foot plate is made of impact-proof ABS. The Discus has been thoroughly tested, undergoing more than 80.000 up and down cycles, which is equivalent to 25 years of intensive use! Both the Discus 150 T and the Discus 250 T are operated by means of foot control and have an adjustable tilting angle.

When sat at a desk or workstation, both feet should be firmly flat on the floor. If this is not the case, once your seat in in the correct position, then a footrest is necessary to ensure good posture.

“My work requires me to sit at the computer for long periods. Despite a good office chair and regular breaks, my legs often started feeling numb during the course of the day.

Basic 952

"Fortunately, my workstation was assessed recently. After my chair had been adjusted to the right height for my desk, my feet did not touch the floor. This created pressure under my thighs which, in the course of the day, brought about the discomfort in my legs.

"To prevent this, an ergonomic footrest was recommended. In our organisation, both function and design are highly regarded.”

This is such a common problem in many workplace environments but often little is known or done about it. If your feet are not flat on the floor when you are seated this can lead to real problems with your legs and back and there is such a quick solution. A footrest is such a simple and efficient solution to, what can be, quite a serious problem. There are several possibilities, a stand-alone footrest on the ground or a foot ring or footboard fixed on a chair.
