According to the latest labor force survey, 3.1 million Canadians were temporarily working from home in February 2021.
In response to the pandemic, it is likely that you or someone close to you has switched to working from home in the past year and a half.
There’s a good chance that you had to make some adjustments to a room in your home to make it more comfortable, whether it was replacing an old office chair or finally buying a proper desk.
Well it seems you have everything you need, but could we suggest a footrest?
An ergonomic footrest, to be precise. If you are struggling with neck and back pain from sitting at the computer for long periods of time, this ErgoFoam option can be the solution.
Even better, it’s now available on Amazon Canada.
ErgoFoam Ergonomic footrest

ErgoFoam products are designed to provide comfort and firm support throughout the day, and chiropractors across North America recommend the Ergonomic Footrest for relieving sciatica, gluteal, hamstring, lower back and knee pain.
“As a chiropractor, I have countless patients who visit me with neck and back pain from sitting in front of a computer for too long,” said Dr. Cariann Paul, a registered chiropractor in New York City. “The high-density foam provides a firm grip without being too tight and is the perfect height for those who are taller.”
Paul’s favorite feature of the ErgoFoam Ergonomic footrest is that when placed with the curve side down, it also doubles as a rocker to keep your feet moving, which improves blood circulation.

The ErgoFoam footrest was also made to be a comfortable 44 centimeters wide, which is wider than most footrest cushions made from sinking memory foam.
It also comes with a removable cover for easy washing and a non-slip base to keep even the most active feet from walking around.
The ErgoFoam footrest is Amazon’s choice for “footrest under the desk” – with almost 7,000 reviews and a rating of 4.5 stars.
“I needed a sufficiently high ergo footrest to have the right seat height at my desk. This footrest did the job great, ”said one reviewer. “It’s very soft to the touch, but firm enough to support your feet and not sink in or lose their shape.”

For others, the purchase is worthwhile due to the stability of the ErgoFoam footrest and the low price.
“Like many others, COVID-19 forced home work, [which] meant it was time to upgrade the home decor, so I had to add a footrest to my office. I picked this one because it ticks all the boxes for a very reasonable price, but after receiving the item I have to say I can’t recommend it enough, “said another reviewer.
They added that the rocker-sized ErgoFoam footrest has a “comfortable yet solid feel” and remains stable even when you feel restless.
