Austin-based Let's Gel Inc. is taking its anti-fatigue floor mats from the living room to the board room.
The company — which makes gel-filled, anti-fatigue ergonomic floor mats for the home that absorb shock and reduce pressure that tires people's feet, legs and back — has developed the NewLife Eco-Pro floor mat for office use, specifically for workers who stand more often than sit at their desk.
The product is a skin polyurethane mat made with Bio-Foam, a plant-based product, according to a press release.
CEO and founder Robb McMahan calls the new office mat a game changer because it can be used in tough industrial conditions but is aesthetically pleasing for office use.
The company began selling its home floor mats in 2005, and employed 15 people in 2009 when it was selected by ABC-TV’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to provide mats for a California home featured on the show.See this review on Austin Business Journal.
