The Origins of the RxFloor
The RxFloor was conceived and designed at the request of a pharmacist who was desperately seeking a solution to problems associated with prolonged standing posture.
What Distinguishes the RxFloor?
Two factors explain why the RxFloor is so effective in relieving its users. First, because it covers the entire floor (pictured above). Thus, all persons are in constant contact with a surface ergonomically well calibrated.
The absorption capacity of the shock wave that provides a floor has an impact on musculoskeletal health. A carpet stuck with its underlay offers a vertical absorption (Figure B). As the RxFloor is floating, its potential of absorption is widely increased (Figure C) and, in fact, it relieves more effectively.
Our environmental process, by lamination of granules from recycled tires, allows to calibrate perfectly the comfort of the RxFloor to the needs of the people who work standing.
The Butterfly Effect
The meteorologist Edward Lorenz discovered that a tiny change in one component can grow gradually to cause huge changes after a certain time. A butterfly’s flapping wings in Paris could cause, according to this metaphor, a storm in New York… This concept doesn’t impact just the weather, it is observed in different areas of everyday life!
Applying the effects of time on the health and also that these effects are amplified by an aggravating factor such as long hours of standing, it is easy to imagine a deterioration or escalation of the aging symptoms. From the perspective of preserving the physical health integrity, wouldn’t it be an imperative to act on the causes of this escalation?
Ergonomics is the science of adapting the work environment to the needs of human beings. Previously, we did not have adequate technologies and knowledge to measure the harmful effects of work on the health of workers. The social costs have exploded and we find ever more effective means to improve the quality of life of our most important resource, the human capital.
For a visionary, the RxFloor is the most recent technological and ecological breakthrough in making more appropriate work areas. It is an effective management tool, modern and pioneer, concerned by the quality of life first. From now on, the RxFloor defines the standard of what is an ergonomic flooring system.
