Ergos popular patented ergonomic mobile anti-fatigue slip resistant footwear accessories have been steadily gaining a “foot hold” in the North America market. Since being patenting in 2003 this purpose built product called ErgoMates have been used by thousands of workers who are required to be standing, walking and working on their feet for extended periods of time. Worn over your existing footwear ErgoMates compliment the users individual shoes, boots or work wear further enhancing the cushioning against heel impact shock while encouraging blood flow through the lower body further protecting against fatigue and pain. This is all achieved as a result of the ErgoMate's sole which encourages the natural fluctuation, stretching and contraction of muscles in the lower body. The anti-fatigue sole is further enhanced with a slip resistant properties for added traction.

A number of large manufacturers in the United States have recently completed ergonomic evaluations to identify and compare alternate ant-fatigue options available such as differnt footwear, in-soles and traditional matting solutions. The common result as been a steady transition away from matting and insoles to Ergos mobile solution products.
Why the change to ErgoMates? To save money while being more Green.

Administration savings are reported as significant. ErgoMates are cited favaourable for having only 5 sizes needed to fit the entire work population as compared to numerous makes, models and sizes required when using in-soles. ErgoMates are simply easier to manage.

Ergomates provide 100% coverage of the work place two feet at a time. ErgoMates are mobile with the worker all the time whereever they go.
Being a Green is achieved through reduction. ErgoMates reduce dispose size and cost as compared to traditional matting.

What is an ErgoMate?
The CE approved unique anti-fatigue lower sole of the ErgoMate incorporates a looped PVC or sealed gel pack with EVA foam. This is combined with Ergos slip resistant soles. Ergos created the ErgoMate H20’s as a purpose built model superior traction model. The H20 uses a custom leading edge, criss-cross tread design specifically engineered to reduce slips and falls often associated with wet slippery work environments.
All ErgoMates share Ergos patented strapping system which comfortably secures the ErgoMate to most any footwear helping ensuring no shifting and movement between footwear and the ErgoMate. The straps make it like the ErgoMate wasn't even there.
