Write a review for StrongTek Wooden Under Desk Foot Rest, Rocker Board (350LB Capacity)
I use it every day while using my computer.
It was shorter than I imagined. It would be nice to be able to add adjustments to it to give it more height. Maybe add adjustable rocker legs for different heights? Overall, it looks great, very lightweight. It was a gift to my daughter, so I dont know how it feels while using it.
My daughter does! She was using compression socks to stop the veins from hurting in her legs from long sitting times. You know what commpression does with long time use..This fixed her problems right away, she keeps the blood flowing with the rocking motion, in turn stops the veins from swelling. She loves it so much she is buying all her assistant managers one.She has used for 4 months now and still loves it.Shipping is always fast, thank you.
Came assembled, good for balance board activities as well as under desk
Initial quality and finish is very good. Works well for me both a foot rest and a balance board.

I love this stool so much. It’s the perfect height for under the desk and the rocking motion is nice to relieve pressure and alter position often. I bet it’s better for my circulation to be moving my legs more like this.The tread on the legs came loose a bit on one side but it stuck back in place ok. It’d be easy to readjust or even replace because of how they not only used stick on tread but fastened it on both legs with screws too. I like that cuz no tread lasts forever.Also the gritty tread on the top surface is perfect for my slippers, sandals or shoes. My feet don’t slip at all. (Big feet, usually wear sneakers)I’ve had a couple others made of foam and wood. Some wood ones were too high and some foam ones were too low or squishy. (I’m 5’6” 130lbs) so I’m a medium person with lower back pain and a strong need to sit with good posture. Anchoring myself using a stool under the desk, table or in front of the couch helps my back pain a lot. I may just buy 2 more of these I like them so much.I really recommend this stool.
I got this footrest to mitigate cramping, and bad blood circulation while working from my home office. Not only does it put my legs in a comfortable position, it also allows me to use my muscles while working. I simply rock back and forth, using slight force from my muscles to control the flow of the footrest -- it's brilliant. It's not heavy at all, and I appreciate the textured sticker on top to keep my feet/shoes from sliding. It's very sturdy - highly recommend if you sit at a desk for most of your day.
Surprised! The box seem really small and thought I might have to assemble, but no it is well made and I was very pleasantly surprised. Really great for my home office and now I am considering a standing desk since it works with both.
Total package is a winner: materials and construction, price, features (rocking base).
This was a gift for my husband. He likes it!
This product has helped alleviate leg and back pain from sitting at a computer all day while working remotely.
I love this board and the ability to lift my feet and rock them while sitting at my desk and stretch my calves (which it's amazing for), the only problem is that after just a couple of weeks of use, the grippy tread on the bottom shifted and came unglued. It makes it less cute to look at and slips around a bit, but still mostly serves its purpose.
This is a great foot rest. I use it under the table when I sit at work to stretch my legs, but I also like to use it when standing to do the same as I had a recent ankle injury and this foot rest helps me with recovery. I would strongly recommend it.
Bought this to avoid the other cheap plastic options and boy, am I glad I did. Though it costs more, it's a decent product (though should be priced about $10 less in my opinion, as it is pretty basic). Quality wood, rubber non-slip backing on the bottom, grip tape on top, reminds me of an under-desk-skateboard. Been using it for a couple of weeks and I love it. Just be careful if you're using it at a stand up desk; you can easily wreck if you're not paying attention! I would have given it more stars if it wasn't a bit pricey for what you get.
Customer Review - March 2020
Second one that I’ve purchased... placed one under my work desk and one at home. These are high quality! Very nice grip for your feet!! Highly recommend!
I'm working from home during the covid-19 pandemic and never before realized how uncomfortable my office chair is without a footrest. This one rocks back and forth to relieve leg strain and I can also stand on it for further relief of hip pain from sitting too long at the desk. I'm going to buy a second one to take to the office when this isolation has ended.
I have used alot of foot rest -balance boards, this is my favorite. Get a good stretch and work your back and abs while works.
I just I rock to fast when I get busy at work....it moves around alittle bit. BUT my coworkers are planning on getting one!
Got it to use at my sit/stand desk at home. It's perfect. Wish I would have purchased it sooner. Might get a 2nd for the office.
I highly recommend this product. It is strong and sturdy and well built. The grips keep your feet in place. It rocks, so it can be in multiple positions. I looked at many other devices and all seemed to pale in comparisons. So many of them (made of plastic) had broken with little use, pretty soon after they were purchased. I rarely write reviews, this one deserves my time and energy. Awesome product!
I love this footrest, it is just the right height for me when I am sitting at my desk. I like being able to flex my feet up and down. This keeps my ankles/feet from getting sore when I am at the desk a lot. I have a Cubi under-desk elliptical machine, but I found it to be too distracting when I am trying to write a paper, which is what I do most at the desk because I am in graduate school. I have it on top of the Cubi mat and it stays where I put it. It is easy to move or adjust to just the right position.
I use this as a footrest under my desk at work. I love that I can rock it and move my feet and legs during the day.
I bought this for a foot stool for under my desk at work. I like this one because it rocks and my feet won’t slide on but I have found having this under my desk to put my feet to play with helps keeps me focused on work. The only downside is that it does slide around under my desk.
I got this to hopefully improve my slouching posture in front of my PC for 8-9 hours a day. I also noticed that in my chair at work it was cutting into my thighs, causing me to stiffen my back. This stool solved that problem by elevating my feet. I have a bit shorter legs, I order petite length in pants, and I found that putting my feet on the floor caused me to lower my office chair and then my upper back and neck suffered because my arms were too low to the desk. Thanks cubicles! LOL For the ladies that have had a nursing stool, it’s like that design but has a rocker base allowing for optimal foot placement. I recommend for those spending a lot of time in front of their PC or for nursing! The stool looks nice and has held up well. I put it away when not in use so my dog isn’t tempted to chew it like he chewed on my wooden foot roller under my desk...
I bought this for work to have something to make my desk more ergonomic while sitting. I'm 5'4' and needed something to allow me to raise my chair up for my wrists while allowing me to keep my legs at 90 degrees and this gave me enough height to do that. I like that I can use it to stretch my legs and look forward to using it for balance training in the future when I get a convertible standing desk.
Light and portable. Saves my back!
Live this for under my work desk. Helps me with my posture as my feet didn’t quite touch the floor before.Love the rocking to stretch my legs.
I ordered it to use at work where I sit and stand much of the day but also have long periods of sitting at the computer. It looks great! It is a compact enough size to fit easily under a desk and also easily moved if I need to change position. I love the rocker design that allows me to move my ankles throughout the day. I kind of wish I could just carry it with me everywhere! I imagine it would be terrific on long flights. Maybe they will come up with a travel version:-)
I like the rocker aspect and the tread.
I ordered this because it allows for leg motion. I sit for ten hour shifts and being able to rock this with my feet keeps some circulation happening.
I like it, using it while seated moves my weight back in the seat pressing my back against the back of the chair.I’m a fidget and can’t sit/stand still. I have been using it at my standing desk and this keeps me entertained so I can stand at my desk and work. I think this it’s like snow boarding and probably works many of the same muscles. So using this has me sitting less and working on core muscles for hours a day all week long.The only issue I have is the rubber on the bottom doesn’t stay in place. I’m not sure what the solution to this is.
Love this foot rest! It's very sturdy!No noise when rocking is a very nice feat.
I recommend this footrest for anyone who has to sit all day.
Great product! Can be used while sitting or standing. The fact that it does NOT slip and can be used to rock back and forth is fantastic.
This is what you want. I originally purchased one of the memory foam rests for my desk, but my feet sunk in it and it wasn't wide enough for my hips, rendering it useless. This one is nice and wide and wood is a major upgrade over the memory foam.
Perfect for under my desk. It does 'creep' away under the desk and I have to pull it out quite often. But I love how it looks and feels.
This ROCKS!! No pun intended! Our entire department loves it! We will be ordering more. Thank you.
I use the footrest every day at home and it's improve the circulation in my knees considerably. I also use it as a balance board every day to help strengthen my core, stretch my calves, and just for fun. I was very concerned when purchasing this product after reading several reviews. It appeared as though some customers were experiencing wear and tear on this product as early as a couple of days. I've had the footrest for a little over a week now and I can tell you it's a quality item. The rubber trim on the bottom will most likely begin falling off as often as I use it. I believe it will be easy to reapply it or even replace it with a strip of rubber I could buy at my closest hardware store. I'm very glad I bought this footrest.
I have had this two weeks now and I really love it. before I picked this up I was beginning to resemble one of those stiff legged goats every time I got up from my desk, staggering across the office for almost a full minute until things stopped hurting. I am still experiencing some stiffness but that is due to the fact that I am not used to sitting all day. The rubber pads have not come off, that makes me happy. It does move across the carpet and I have to fetch it back with my feet but it keeps my legs from being in the same position the whole time so I will count it as a win. I can use it to stretch out my feet and legs and it is a really good fidget toy so I can jog my legs and wiggle and no one knows. It has also improved my ergonomics since I do not have to have my chair at the lowest setting to have my feet on the ground. I am glad I didn't go with a stationary foot rest and the wood appeals to me more than some plastic slab with breakable parts.
Very sturdy and comfortable. Better than anything else on the market. Should have gotten this a long time ago! I've spent a lot of money on plastic ones that break. This one is fantastic, and I find that I also stand on it when I am at my standing desk. I like stretching my calves while typing too. Helps prevent tight muscles and cramping.
My wife has been advised to keep her feet slightly elevated while seated. She had been using the rung of an adjacent chair, but due to neuropathy, could not tell when her foot began to slide, causing her pain when her foot slipped off the rung and slammed into the floor.This item fits the bill perfectly! The rounded 'feet' allow her to rock her feet back and forth as directed, and the friction material on the 'feet' and on the top surface prevent slippage. She loves this item. Recommended.
Love. It. __ I am short. Needed something to rest feet on in new small massage chair. This is perfect!

This is a sturdy footrest, and balance board. Good brand. I'm happy with my purchase. I use on a scatter rug so it doesn't slide on the wood floors. I do so more for the floors than the stability of the device. It doesn't fly across the floor but it moves, to be expected.
Good quality foot rest. No assembly needed. I use it under my desk. Helps restless legs.
I’ve been using this under my desk at work. I feel it helps me with my posture. I finally have a place to rest my feet. I would think it also promotes circulation with the rocking motion of your ankles.
I love this; great to fidget with at work
Danica B Copp
Overall I like this but the treads on the bottom aren’t staying stuck so they tend to come off and then the wood on the chair mat slides. :(
I have it the office and I love it. Keeps me standing and working with balance. It is very nice made
I bought this for my attorney daughter who sits for hours at her desk at work. It keeps the blood moving in her feet and legs preventing swollen feet at end of the day. Easy to use. No one can see it. It works.
My coworker and I use this and don't have to change the height of the chair. The rocking motion is great.
Super versatile under desk rocker.
The StrongTek Foot Rest elevates my legs to a comfortable height allowing for better circulation and a longer productive stay at my desk.
I love it, but it slides when on a chair mat __
Solidly made. I picked StrongTek because (opposite of others) it said it was strong enough to stand on. I got it as a large platform area rocking footrest for working long hours at my desk. When it arrived I tried standing on it to test the strength. It still has not made it under my desk, it does such an amazing job of stretching leg and ankle muscles when standing on it and rocking back. It is more effective than all the different calf and ankle stretches I had been doing. It is banishing my foot pain. There is a StrongTek company video of ways to use this footrest for stretching, it is so true! I plan to order another one to actually use one as a footrest, and leave one out for stretching anytime easily.
Great grip on bare feet aswell as shoes
Fun to fidget with
Its a lot narrower than I had imagined.. wish it was a bit wider as my feet barely fit and I am a size 7! Since my feet can't completely rest on it, not too comfortable. Also it is a bit short.. an inch or two higher would have made a real difference. But the worst issue for me is the rough surface.. its a strip of sandpaper stuck on top! In winter when I am sitting with my socks on, they get struck and form balls of fiber scraping against the rough surface. Wish the company would just provide the non-slip sandpaper as a separate peel-on for people who need to attach it. I had to wrap mine in cling wrap so the scratchy surface would get covered and I could sit comfortably without ruining my socks!
This foot rest is very noisy and will not adhere to the ceramic title flooring at all. It moves and slides when I am attempting to place my feet on this foot rest. Little to no grip or traction. No place to apply some type of grip pad or stickers. As there is no real flat surface. Works well on carpet. I will need to modify or return.
So easy to rock, my legs dearly appreciate!
Frida de La Rose
I have to return this because I will use it with bare feet on it. However the design and the size is good for a good footrest only used with shoes on. There are small shiny particles lamented onto the footrest flat surface to keep it non skidding. This material feels like glass particles and it will hurt your feet if you are bare feet. I hope it will label for shoes on only.
I love this thing. I’m fidgety and usually bounce or rock in my chair. This is perfect to roll with my feet when I’m sitting at my desk for long periods of time. Helps with circulation, boredom, anxiety and restlessness. I have it at home at my desk. If I had more money I’d buy one for my office and one to travel with too! I bet it’s great on a plane!!!
Very sturdy! I like the non slip surface too!
Helps ease my lower back pain while sitting at my desk. Also love that it rocks so I can do ankle stretches...bonus!
Ready to use with minimal set up, easy to transport
Love it! All of my coworkers steal it to use at their desks as well. Great height as a footstool when I am sitting at my desk, and fun to stand/balance on when I have my desk in standing position. Also helps with fidgeting because I can rock my feet.
Very comfortable foot stool, great height!
Really like the foot rest but after 2 months’ use the touted rubber grip is coming off.
I like he swivel action, nice traction on the feet rest. Good buy for sure.
Very comfortable under my desk
It definitely helps when stuck at a desk all day. But the rubber on the rocker portion peeled off pretty quickly.
I love using this footrest in my home office - it's a perfect height for me, and I love the rocking motion.I also use it to stand on when I raise my desktop - it's very sturdy.The one non-ideal issue I'll mention is that the rubbery grip tape on the bottoms of the rockers has already slipped out of place, so I'll be looking for something to replace that with. I still plan to get another one of these for the office, though!
I purchased this to add to my balance work and it is great for that.It has also found it's way under my table when I'm doing paperwork so I can keep my legs moving, they are much happier that way.Great purchaseQuick delivery & well packaged.
This works perfectly! I bought this as a footrest for under my desk ( I am too short).I didn't know that I could stand on it and that it would help stretch my leg muscles and help with healing an injury.Thank you
Nathan D. Lowry
I wanted a footrest for when I'm sitting that is comfortable to use while working and a platform to stand on when standing at the desk that allowed for me to flex and move my ankles to prevent fatigue. This does exactly those things! I think that I think it looks nice and not out place, which is just icing on the cake.
This is great at my desk. Only draw back....when I have both feet on it and rock it forward and backward (it feels so good on the circulation) the unit will slid forward on the carpet so I have to pick it up with my feet to bring it back to me. Other wise I love it.
Great at work for sure legs.
Bonnie M Barber
The stickey tape on the runners came off. I just took it off totally and then it worked great. My is used on carpeting so I really didn't need the traction anyway. Very sturdy and much better than the plastic ones I have used in the past. Worth the money.
robbie r. corriss
so awesome and very sturdy!! You wont be disappointed. Ordered a second one for our other work station!
I had another type of foot rest rocker for many years. It cracked and then just finally broke. It had a metal base with a particle board foot rest. This one however is made in one piece and is solid wood. Being short, it's essential for me to be able to keep my knees at a 90 degree angle and this foot rest does the job very well. I read in several reviews that some purchasers experienced the loss of the rubber bottom. Mine is on carpet, I use it 5 days a week and is showing no signs of coming off.I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Added such a fun challenge to my workouts and handstand play! Also, it helps my posture at my desk job! No more low back pain!
After trying an improvised foot rest, I noticed a decrease in circulation related problems such as leg cramps and numbness. I'm 74.I chose this foot rest because it has the option of adding simple stretching exercises plus it looks good.After a month of steady usage it's working great!
I've tried a lot of different foot rests, all of which I wind up breaking, because they aren't comfortable and I'm a fidgeter. This one was perfect - the right height and the rocking makes it very comfortable. Also very strong and well constructed
Post ankle surgery, my therapist tells me that I need to move my ankle more, to avoid discomfort. This foot rest makes it easy for me to move my ankles in the proper direction as I sit at my desk. Nice high quality construction.
This foot rest is absolutely well built, and practical. My 220 lb husband stood up on it for a few minutes, and the stool held his weight steadily. I use this footstool at work (after having tried all of the plastic/adjustable ones that were stiff, limiting, and broke in less than a year each time). This wooden stool has a unique design that allows you to roll your ankle to any position you want throughout the day. The height is perfect, and you can even slide your feet more or less centered, in order to change the height of your heels from the floor. Its also great to be able to flex the feet in BOTH directions throughout the day (toes down or toes up). I even use this foot stool as an Achilles/facia stretch aide, by placing it in front of a wall, standing on it facing the wall, and then rolling my toes upward/heels downward. This truly is a special product, built with innovation and practicality in mind. I highly recommend this to any size/height person, looking to give their legs and feet a varied break throughout the work day. :)
I like the design, but after a few weeks of use, I find that the rocking is making my feet sore. I purchased this to help improve my posture. If my muscles were not already weak, this would have worked. But it is very well made and durable. It is also nice looking.
I use this under my desk at work. It helps keep my lower back aligned. I have had several coworkers ask for the link so that they can order one as well. It is well made and sturdy enough to stand on (not that I do)!
My wife found this foot rest to be perfect height for her. The rocking motion does not bother her as to some other users. I don't have any bottom strip issue as I saw on other reviews but I find some similar product that can be used to patch up that part in case this really happens in the future.
Very comfortable and strong
Helps feet the blood flowing in feet while sitting fit long periods
This item is great and prevents the swelling in my legs from sitting long hours to work.
Love this product! It looks very nice and is the perfect height for my feet under my desk. It is very well constructed and solid and I have no qualms with even standing on it and putting full weight on it. I love the rocking motion. Also as an added bonus, I figured out if you stand on it with toes both pointed ahead (I hold on to something) and slowly rock heels back (so they go down and toes go up) it is an excellent gentle stretch for your calves! I have a physical therapist as a coworker and she was loving the stretch it provided also! It is fantastic for those long days sitting at your desk. The grippies keep it from sliding even a tiny bit on our low pile office carpet!
After my plastic footrest broke again, I was determined to find something sturdier. This footrest fits the bill brilliantly! It's so, so solid. I love that it's wooden and doesn't have any little plastic parts that can break off easily. I like that it's easy for me to move around on the floor if I want to, but that it doesn't slip and slide around at all. (I am on carpet, for what that's worth.)I had some concerns about whether I would be bothered by the fact that I can't keep it stuck in one position, but it turns out I actually love that it can rock a bit. When my feet are on it and unmoving, it stays still. But if I change my angle at all, it changes with me.Definitely worth the price for something that won't break!
Liked that I can move my feet while sitting at my desk
My feet don't touch the ground in my office chair. This rocker is really nicely made and attractive. And the rocking movement helps with leg stiffness when sitting for long periods. I am also hoping that burns calories! :-)
I love the height, material, and rocker features of this foot rest. I'm 5'1' so in order to be the right height for typing my feet don't touch the ground! I love this foot rest as it is active rather than passive. The top is a bit scratchy - since I work from home I'm often barefoot and it was a bit rough for my feet, but I put a throw on top which has helped. Only reason not 5 stars for me :-)

This solid, one-piece footrest requires zero setup or adjusting time. Simply pull it from the shipping box, set it on the floor, and enjoy finally having a way to stretch your calves (or just reach the floor if you are short like me!) while you work.
Carolina G Martinez
I liked that it helps stretch my Achilles’ tendon as I sit at my desk.
