Imprint Comfort Mats: Save Your Back By Making Your Home Greener

Imprint Comfort Mats look great in this kitchen

The new Imprint Comfort Mats are all the rage for the stylish home. Not only do they look great in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where there’s a lot of standing, the mats are eco and offer amazing health benefits.

I have four of the Imprint Mats at home – two in the kitchen and two in the master bath. I love them and have experienced such a difference in the way my lower back feels when I stand to wash dishes, cook, put on make-up, etc. I decided to find out what makes the mats so great, so I asked Philip Risk. Risk’s Scottsdale-based company produces the Imprint Mats.

“Eight out of 10 Americans will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lifetime, making anti-fatigue mats a healthy solution,” said Risk. “The mats actually conform to the shape of your feet and support the arches, resulting in increased blood flow and soothing relief from pressure that is often felt from standing on hard surfaces.”

The mats leave an imprint of your feet when you step off (it goes away quickly) and have even been tested for their health benefits. A major University School of Ergonomics determined Imprint Mats were “shown to significantly reduce pain and lessen discomfort” when compared to standing on a hard surface.” Study participants saw a reduction of overall fatigue by 56%, lower leg fatigue reduced by 63% and a 51% reduction in back pain.

And, they’re green! “The mats aren’t only good for your health, they are great for our planet as they are made out of a new, patented eco9 technology that is environmentally-friendly, non-toxic and is manufactured without the use of toxic metals,” adds Risk. Imprint also comes with a full seven-year warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee. Really, what’s not to love?

Perfect for the kitchen, laundry, bathroom or garage, the Imprint mats are waterproof and washable. They come in three designer patterns (I love the new English Fern pattern), four sizes and up to five colors. Imprint is available on www.imprintmats.com and through leading retailers including Bed, Bath & Beyond and Amazon.com.
