Step up your ergonomic support with Secretlab footrests

By February 21, 2023 April 24th, 2023 No Comments

Feet down. Rest up.

Modern work culture widely demands a sedentary lifestyle, which is why it is of paramount importance that you sit right. An easy, oft-overlooked way to instantly improve your posture is to keep both feet firmly planted on the floor — you will naturally straighten your back, alleviating pressure on the back of your legs and spine.

If your feet cannot comfortably reach the floor while seated, the solution is simple. Just add an under-desk footrest.

With Secretlab, you can now choose between two ergonomic Secretlab Footrest options designed to work perfectly in tandem with all Secretlab chairs, and achieve the full head-to-toe Secretlab ergonomic experience for you in your setup.

Click here for a quick overview and comparison of the Secretlab Premium Footrest (PlushCell™ Memory Foam) and Secretlab Professional Footrest (CloudSwap™ Technology).

The Secretlab Professional Footrest (CloudSwap™ Technology) and Secretlab Premium Footrest (PlushCell™ Memory Foam) are designed to provide additional support while seated. Its ergonomic benefits have been validated by members of our independent Ergonomics Advisory Board, comprising experts in the fields of biomechanics, orthopedics, and more.

Plush, supportive comfort for everyday users

Secretlab Premium Footrest (PlushCell™ Memory Foam) — or PlushCell™ Footrest — joins the Secretlab Magnetic Memory Foam Head Pillow and Secretlab PlushCell™ Memory Foam Armrest Top in the ranks of plush comfort. This gaming chair footrest layers two different cutting-edge foams to supplement soft comfort with just the right amount of firmness. 

Take a closer look at how we achieved the perfect blend of soft-touch support to accompany your gaming chair:

Dual-density foam construction for plush, supportive comfort.

Dual-density foam construction

Plush softness is irresistible but often falls flat when it comes to long-term support. With a core made of specially formulated medium-firm cold-cure foam also found in our award-winning chairs, the PlushCell™ Footrest distributes weight evenly and provides adequate support without compromising on softness we all love.

The cold-cure foam is encapsulated in a generous outer layer of visco-elastic PlushCell™ Memory Foam for soft-to-the-touch comfort that cradles you. So your feet can stay supported and well rested, while feeling like they’re being propped up on clouds.

Ergonomic superellipse design

Plush comfort that sits beneath your desk and slopes gently at the edges. This shape is specially crafted to offer both curved edges and a flat top surface across the wide surface area to rest your feet however you prefer.

“The ability to raise my feet allows me to reduce pressure on my glutes and legs in a reclined position as I’m relaxing. The footrest’s extra width also encourages me to move my legs more frequently and shift into varying postures, promoting stress relief from one tissue to another while seated for prolonged periods.”
– Dr. Jordan Tsai, Ergonomics Advisory Board Member, PT DPT OCS Esports & Founder of Respawn Therapy

Soft, breathable comfort

Enveloped in a soft velour for a soft, breathable feel, with a quilted texture for extra style points in luxury. The fabric is also engineered to retain shape, stay durable for long-term usage, and is hand-washable for a fresh feel. Rest assured that you will find comfort that hits the right spot every time, for years to come.

Pro-grade ergonomics for high-performance plays

Step into peak performance with the ultimate ergonomic support built for the most discerning pros. The Secretlab Professional Footrest (CloudSwap™ Technology)* — or Footrest Pro — puts you in charge of exactly how you want to rest your feet. Now you can complement your gaming or office chair with a footrest you can customize to your exacting needs. Footrest Pro works best when paired with a Secretlab gaming chair.

Switch between staying stationary or dynamic rocking movement.

Precise ergonomics with dual mode

Remaining in one position for prolonged hours may lead to poor blood circulation and other health issues over time. The Footrest Pro enables easy switching between Dynamic and Stationary Modes for the experience you want. With Dynamic Mode, you can choose to stay active even while seated. From the Stationary Mode, simply step down on the adjustment pedal and slide the switch to Dynamic. Unlock for 30° of free range, rocking movement with the tilt-adjustable swivel mechanism, while still reaping the ergonomic benefits of keeping your feet firmly planted. 

Too much movement? Stay locked in place with Stationary Mode. Once again, simply step down on the adjustment pedal and slide the switch. You can secure the Footrest Pro at any angle between +15° to -15° for just the right amount of incline to meet your exacting needs.

“I find myself using the locking function frequently as I shift in my seat throughout the day — this lets me rest my feet at the optimal dorsiflexion angle of around 0 to 15°, with just the right amount of incline to support the correct sitting posture.”
– Dr. Lindsey Migliore, Ergonomics Advisory Board Member, Esports Medicine Physician & Founder of GamerDoc

Full metal chassis

Stand your ground in a boss raid or boardroom battle with unmatched stability and support. Constructed with a full metal chassis, the Footrest Pro is sturdy and durable enough to hold the fort — and your feet. Hardcore gamers can stay laser-focused with their feet securely anchored to the extra-wide flat top surface for the ultimate performance advantage.

For even deeper customization, get the rubber base height extender for an additional boost of 20mm if required. So individuals with a smaller stature can comfortably reach the Footrest Pro without strain.

CloudSwap™ Compatible footrest top

Exercise the freedom to swap the footrest top of the Secretlab Footrest Pro to other options, made possible with our proprietary magnetic CloudSwap™ replacement system. The magnetic attachments guarantee perfect alignment every single time with a satisfying click. Switch to plush support with the Secretlab PlushCell™ Memory Foam Footrest Top, or enjoy cozy warmth with the Secretlab Heated Footrest Top.
