Anyone with restless feet will be happy to hear that there is now an ergonomic footrest that lets your feet stay active, even if you’re sitting at your desk all day.

A footrest that combines art and ergonomics – ooloo is not only a great way to keep your muscles moving, and the blood flowing, but also an excellent way to stay supple, with the design stretching your calves and achilles tendon as well.

Despite the amount of time many of us spend sitting down, prolonged periods being off our feet can lead to poor health, including conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and a decreased lifespan. That’s exactly why ooloo was created, to try and offset these negative effects.

Apart from the physical benefits, there are also aesthetic benefits to be had, with a variety of designs available to choose from. Whether you want a minimalist feel, or a bit more chaos in the form of street art, there is probably an option for you. Click through the gallery below to see the various design options.
