Under the desk footrests for a more comfortable WFH experience

You’re already stuck at your desk while you work from home, so you might as well make the most of it. Footrests give you the most comfort you could ask for while you’re planted in your chair. The workday doesn’t have to be all bad. Here are our top picks.

ComfiLife under-the-desk footrest and support

High-density memory foam is arguably the best material for a footrest, and ComfiLife knows it. This footrest has a bit of bounce so you can find your ideal level of comfort, and it’s portable so that you can bring it with you. Here’s a tip: It works great if you spend a lot of time in a car’s passenger seat.

The material is not easy to clean, so you want to ensure you wear socks when using this footrest. When appropriately positioned, you’ll be able to relieve back and spine pain while improving your ergonomics for better typing angles. It’s more than a footrest when you look at all the benefits.

ErgoFoam adjustable velvet foam footrest

Need some adjustability? ErgoFoam uses memory foam to help contour your footrest to your specific needs, so you aren’t stuck with a feeling you don’t like. Help alleviate knee and side pain by positioning your legs and feet better while you work.

Velvet covers like these help with traction for the bottom of your socks, but they’re not easy to clean. Make sure you don’t put sweaty or bare feet directly on the fabric and it will stay clean for ages. Thanks to custom foam, this footrest doesn’t lose its shape or morph over time.

Everlasting comfort footrest

Adjustable footrests aren’t for everyone. Sometimes they’re a little too intrusive on your space. Everlasting made this angled footrest that sits directly on the floor so you can rest the arch of your feet against it.

It fits under your desk without being obstructive and helps evenly disperse heat from your feet while you work. No more hot spots on your toes. Raise or lower your feet on the slope as much as you want and enjoy custom comfort while you work.
