So when the folks at WellnessMats asked me if I'd like to test-drive (stand?) one of their nifty new mats that are medically proven and ergonomically engineered to reduce stress and provide relief to the back, knees and FEET - I said You Betcha! (note to self: quit watching Fargo every time it runs on AMC).
These are no ORDINARY MATS. No sir. These bad-boys are the mat-of-choice for the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security (how else do you think they have the energy to feel you up?). They're also the choice of Iron Chefs Mario Batali and our Ft. Worth buddy, Tim Love.
To give my feet a break, I took my sample and put it in the garage next to my work bench (Yes, I DO have a work bench, even though I'm a functional illiterate in the ways of fixing things). Gotta tell you, the relief was immediate.
The non-slip mat provided cushiony comfort for my feet and I felt like the promise of Flubber was finally fulfilled (remember this?).
In short, I didn't get tired nearly as fast as standing on my concrete-hard garage floor. It made a HUGE difference. Best of all, the mat's beveled edge kept it from curling up and slipping, so there's no tripping over it. And that's a BIG PLUS for a garage klutz like me.
They're stain, heat and puncture resistant and they're made in the good ol' USA. The Boomer Brief gives the WellnessMat an enthusiastic 10-toes Up!
