Humanscale FM100

Humanscale FM100 Foot Rest Review

The Humanscale FM100 is an entry level footrest with an adjustable angle designed to support the feet and take pressure off the back. FEATURES/OPTIONS: - Hardwood foot rest on a metal frame - Adjustable angle - Non-skid surface to keep it from sliding across the floor REVIEW: The FM100 is a pretty basic foot rest.  It supports your feet at whatever angle you want.  It stays put and doesn’t slide across the floor. It doesn’t rock smoothly like the FM300B or the FM500, but it’s a basic foot rest and isn’t designed to have all the bells and whistles.  It

Humanscale FM500

Humanscale FM500 Footrest Review

Designed to support the feet and legs while working, the Humanscale FM500 features curved “feet” to allow for an easy rocking motion which will help promote circulation. FEATURES/OPTIONS: - Available in natural wood or black - Aluminum legs with rubber coating to keep the footrest in place and protect hardwood floors REVIEW: The Humanscale FM500 is an alright footrest in the sense that it’s better than nothing.  You can’t adjust the height, and despite having rubber skids on the bottom, it still had a tendency to slide across the floor when I was using it.  It is also very easy

Teknion Contessa Review

Controlled by what Teknion calls “smart operation,” the Contessa is a task chair designed to compete on the same level as (and possibly surpass) all competitors.  Oh, and it’s 95% recyclable, too.
