Buying a Desk Foot Rest & TKR

Some of you have asked me if I had any information about where to buy foot rests that can be used under a desk. The rests are intended to elevate the tkr leg and keep the swelling down.

I purchased one in excellent condition at my local thrift store. It cost me a whopping $3. There is not even a scratch on it. So…I would recommend looking in thrift stores or consignment shops (although these stores charge more than thrift stores).

Seeing that times are tight for many, there are other ways to stretch the dollar while finding good bargains. Visiting garage sales, estate sales, or simply by letting friends know you’re in the market for one are good ideas. Auctions may be of service, also.

Check out your local Craig’s List, under ‘For Sale’, Sporting. I found a recumbent bike in excellent condition that way. Plus, the sellers only lived ½ mile away and they delivered. 🙂 Nice… You may also want to check under Free, since I have seen tons of exercise equipment just being given away in this category.

And, if you want to buy an unpacked, new foot rest for your tkr leg….Office supply stores, department stores, or superstores such as WalMart are your best bet. Some deliver, just check it out.

Hope this helps….Good luck!!

P.S. I also wrote a blog post a while ago about how to elevate your leg while sitting at a desk without using a specially made foot rest. All methods worked for me. It’s all here somewhere. 🙂

  • One of the things I found most helpful for a foot rest (leg rest) during total knee replacement recovery was to move my tower onto the floor and use it as a foot rest. A good box, like a banker box, can be a cheap fix also, turn it on it’s end and it is high enough to be very serviceable. Cheap too. I no longer use a foot rest. I am at the 11 month recovery mark.
