Painless swelling of the feet and ankles is a common problem, especially among older people.
This is called edema and can be caused due to various reasons including
1. Sitting for long periods with legs dangling down (you will notice this on long haul flights).
3. Increased intake of salt
4. Leg infection.
5. Anti-depressants, blood pressure medicine, estrogen and other hormonal supplements.
6. Heart, lung or liver failure
A foot stool is a simple device that can provide a lot of relief to your weary legs. Not only is it comfortable, but also essential for people who find that their feet are swelling during the day. Putting up your feet will ensure that the collected fluid does not remain around your feet and ankle.
This device is extremely useful and can be adjusted for 3 different height levels - 33 cm, 39 cm, 43 cm.
It can be flattened out so it takes very little space when not in use.
