Q: Why does the ERGOup attach to my seat?
While using a conventional office ottoman or a simple stack of books/boxes can work to temporarily elevate your legs, it may lead to increased strain or injury to other areas of the body.
The ERGOup provides proper elevation of the legs and feet, partly because of the fact it attaches to your chair. Simply resting your foot on a stack of books or a box does not support your knee. This may work to temporarily elevate an injured foot or ankle, but will definitely NOT work for knee injuries. Additionally, long term elevation using this method can lead to knee injuries, as the knee becomes hyper extended without proper support. An unattached ottoman will also slide or roll toward your body when the knee is kept in a proper ergonomic position. Once the ottoman slides closer, the ergonomic position is compromised.
Q: How does the ERGOup attach to my seat?
The ERGOup is fitted with an adjustable velcro strap that attaches around tech post of most standard office seats. Simply slide the sleeve that covers the post of your office seat post and attach the velcro strap.
Q. Will I need any tools to attach the ERGOup to my seat?
NO. The ERGOup Leg Support easily attaches to office chairs with a velcro strap. No tools or assembly required!
Q. Should I buy the 12" or 18" Model?
If you plan to elevate both legs at one time, you should consider the 18" MOdel. Smaller body structures can use the 12" model to elevate both legs at one time, but it is designed primarily to elevate one leg at a time.
