Abstract

The worker who remains in a seated posture for a long time can develop different pathologies, like problems arising from the bad circulation of lower limbs. From this problem, a prototype of active footrest was developed, by rapid prototyping, to help the workers as well as the venous return of the lower limbs. After the prototype construction, was evaluated its effectiveness. First of all, the participants in this research were submitted to a previous test in the Botucatu’s Clinical Hospital to check the venous health of lower limbs, and then, the prototype was tested for an evaluation through the water plethysmography apparatus, to verify possible modifications as the user’s volumetry of lower limbs. The effective improvement as result was obtained concerning the venous return of lower limbs that used the prototype, about those which did not use it.
