Versatile, Lightweight

The versatile, lightweight 2-position TUFFET™ LEG AND FOOT REST is fully adjustable in shape and softness to accommodate to the users level of comfort.

The unique design offers 2 resting positions - as a standard, firm foot stool or as an inverted, fully adjustable leg rest configuration. In the standard position, the TUFFET™ LEG AND FOOT REST can be used from either the sitting location as a foot stool or from the reclining location to raise the legs. In the inverted position, the TUFFET can be rocked back and forth to achieve the most comfortable support from the sitting place.

This may help reduce swelling and improve the condition of the skin and leg muscles. In the inverted TUFFET™ position the feet are fully supported with the knees slightly bent which may alleviate back discomfort.

The surface is constructed of a "soft touch", durable plastic that can be adjusted for firmness by releasing air from a recessed air valve.
