The Humanscale FM500 foot machine, uses ball-bearing rollers to create movement and encourage a more active sitting position from the user. The gentle rocking motion helps to fight health issues such as blood clots, varicose veins and pressure on the Achilles tendon due to pooling of fluids in the lower limbs, which can come about as the result of prolonged, inactive sitting. The Humanscale FM500 Foot Machine also performs as a standard foot rest, providing support for the legs and relieving pressure on the lower back.

Best foot rest I've found. The motion is very fluid, and hence very relaxing. A little pricey, but the quality is such that I don't regret having spent the money. Recommended.

ITS OK. DEFINTELY OVERPRICED. THEY SHOULD THINK ABOUT PUTTING SOME RUBBER OVER THE BRUSHED ALUMINUM BECAUSE IF YOU USE THE FOOTREST AT HOEM AND BAREFOOT, YOU WILL BE CUTTING YOUR FOOT ONCE A DAY. IT ALSO HAS A BALANCE PROBLEM IT NEEDS TO BE MNORE BOTTOM HEAVY SO IT DOESNT TURN UPSIDE DOWN. VERY GOOD LOOKING FOOTREST THOUGH. AND IT IS A BETTER BUILD THAN THERE OTHER FOOTREST. WITH A FEW TWEAKS AND SOME BETTER WORKMANSHIP, THIS WOULD BE A REALLY GOOD FOOTREST.
