If you are like me and spend alot of time on your feet you will be so excited to learn about GelPro! We have been updating the kitchen the last few months and it is almost complete. A few weeks ago I realized it was missing one important thing, a rug. This renovation project will not be complete until I am comfortable standing in there! As I started searching I was amazed at the variety of kitchen mats and rugs avaliable online. When I discovered GelPro I knew it was perfect for me!
GelPro , the first brand of stylish and affordable comfort flooring solutions, just launched the world’s most comfortable kitchen rug on August 1st, called the Ergo Comfort Rug for $49.95. The rug combines a soft, warm surface, a removable foam comfort pad that won’t bottom out like memory foam, and a non-slip bottom which provide hours of stylish comfort. Ergo Comfort Rugs are easy to wash by removing the comfort mat from the pouch on the back of the rug and putting the washable cover in the washing machine.. These rugs are available online and at Bed, Bath & Beyond stores nationally.
Why choose GelPro?
“People spend a lot of time in their home standing on hard surfaces that were not designed with comfort in mind. Standing for an extended period of time – while cooking, doing loads of laundry and other activities – causes stress to your whole body, especially in your feet, joints and lower back. While standing, your leg muscles are in a constant state of flexion, which reduces blood and oxygen flow throughout your body causing fatigue. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, around 46 million Americans suffer from arthritis and Newsweek magazine has reported that 65 million Americans experience back pain
GelPro comfort floor mats are ergonomically designed to address these painful problems. Each mat has a revolutionary shock-absorbing gel core that cradles your feet providing extra support and cushion. This unique, patented technology provides therapeutic pain relief, which allows you to do the things you love in ultimate comfort. “
I had so much trouble deciding which mat was right for my new kitchen. GelPro mats are available in more than 600 pattern, color and size combinations! I was thrilled to find the Find your GelPro Mat feature. on their site. I was able to narrow down by size, color, pattern, etc. After a LONG time on their site I decided on the Willow Greystone Mat.
What do I think?
When it arrived I was AMAZED! First it was packaged so nicely. It was packaged so that it would not be bent or damaged in transit. I quickly unwrapped it and read over the information sheet that was included. I placed it in front of my new black cabinets and on my new floors and stood and admired it. It was PERFECT! It looked beautiful! (For some reason it looks brownish in the photo but I assure you it is Grey.
After standing and admiring it I had to stand on it and see if it was really as great and it sounded. I took off my shoes and stepped on and was shocked. It was not like any other rug or mat I had ever stood on before. This one hugged my feet as they sunk into the mat. I actually wanted to wash the dishes because I was so comfortable. (That never happens!)
It has been about 2 weeks now and I am still just as impressed as I was the first day. I still look forward to cooking and doing dishes because of the GelPro Mat. My feet no longer hurt after standing on them for over 30 minutes while doing my daily work. I even take it to the laundry room when I will be standing for a long period doing laundry. I plan to purchase another one for that room. I think I will go with the Cape Cod Mat for my next rug.
This is a MUST HAVE for anyone you know that stands on their feet for long periods of time! If this is you then you should add this to your wish list! Ask for this for your birthday or go ahead and reward yourself with a gift now. Your feet, back and legs will THANK YOU for it!
