This item is bigger than looks like on the photos, so make sure of the measures before buy based on your available space.
Good quality not extraordinary, functional and consider that your chair will tend to move due the natural force legs apply, i think i'll buy a plastic matt to avoid my chair role far from my desk.
The design and aesthetics are pretty industrial/office, nothing fancy. The rubber surface is quite strong-smelling but this goes after a couple of days. Setup was easy, I followed the guide and adjusted my surroundings to make everything as comfortable as possible. I decided to lcok it in my favourite position rather than have it free-moving, which I found to be annoying. I've set it up so I have two settings for when I'm sitting up (work) or slouching (gaming).
My unit has a small amount of creaking when I put my full weight on it (i.e. wriggling in my chair to get comfy) but in normal use it's silent.
I no longer have the ache in my ankles after an hour or so, so clearly it's doing the job.
£40 may seem like a lot for a footrest (something you could knock up from some bits of wood), but the adjustability, stability and build quality mean it's worth the money.
Four foottastic stars.
UPDATE: three months later this is still working perfectly, I hope to get at least a year out of it.
The only downside is the top falls off if you’re not careful. This sounds extreme but isn’t really as this is only an issue during the initial setup.
You get some guidelines on height settings and a cardboard guide for height between thigh and desk/tray. My hands seem to not be the shape Kensington expected as I managed between my various fingers to apparently be 3 different settings - it’s just a guide really.
To change height, loosen the two bolts and give a positive pull/push and then tighten - very easy.
Compared to a competing product i’ve Tried, the ease at which you can set this to tilt or be fixed, by just flicking the switch at the front is superb. The other product requires a lot of effort on hands and knees to do the same.
This also has fantastic rubber feet - they’re big and grippy - which means they won’t fall out and they keep the foot rest in place.
All in all a really good foot rest that aside from a slight fiddle initially is very comfortable to use and robust.
The unit stands on non-slip rubber feet and features a knob at either end of it which you unscrew to adjust to the right height, adjustment is via a colour coded and the right adjustment is determined by the colour scale for your hand size.
Once understood I found this system actually works quite well and once the knobs are locked into place they keep their position. You can also adjust the tilt of the platform and lock it via a foot operated catch - again, a handy feature which works well and the tilt angle is maintained once set.
Other features I like are that the footplate dimensions are generous both in width and depth and the unit doesn't slide around or squeak - it feels strong and substantial. In my experience, there's no doubt this footrest does make prolonged periods at a PC more comfortable, obviously, you have to adjust other items such as your desk, keyboard and screen to the optimum position to get the most benefit.
In summary, this foot rest, is well designed/constructed and feels as though it should last plus the price is reasonable - I like it a lot.
Our bodies aren't really designed for sitting for prolonged periods, so doing so can lead to a host of health problems. You may find a foot rest helpful if the fixed height work station or desk you use is too high for you and leaves your feet dangling off your seat. The foot rest will support the feet so your knees are just above your hips as well as tilting your feet towards you slightly.
This is a nice large foot rest, so it supports the whole food and you can move your feet around across the surface. The surface is quite grippy, so your feet don't slip. There are rubber grips on the bottom so it does not slip even on shiny surfaces. The angle of tilt is fully adjustable on an arc.
It is quite creaky - it makes a noise every time you move your feet around. And it is large (see the dimensions in the listing), so needs quite a bit of clearance under your desk. The instructions are barely comprehensible, consisting of diagrams that perhaps the person who drew them understood but I'm not sure I do!
For sale at the time of writing this review at £31.50.
The footrest is fully assembled but you need to adjust two settings to suit your needs, which is easier said than done. Firstly, measure your hand to establish your colour, which you then use to adjust the height. This is the bit I found trickiest as the mechanism was stiff and didn’t want to move. Once at the correct height, two bolts are tightened to hold it securely in place.
The other adjustment is the angle of the platform, which has a foot pedal to release or lock into place. I am leaving this unlocked to allow me to move my feet forwards and back whilst at my desk.
Build quality is acceptable and, once adjusted, there should be no need to alter anything other than the angle, so the fact that adjustments are tricky doesn’t really matter in the long-term.
I can already feel my posture improving and the strain has been eased from my lower back. It makes sitting at my desk a much more comfortable experience.
