Ways to Elevate Your Leg While Sitting At A Desk

Hi everyone! Here is a reprint of an article I wrote about recuperating while sitting at a desk. You’ve sent a lot of requests for it (thank you!) …so here goes..Enjoy!

Recently, a few of my readers asked for suggestions on ways to sit comfortably at a desk after having their total knee replacement (or any leg injury, for that matter). Here are some ideas that work well for me. They keep the ankle and lower leg swelling down for me.

I needed something after those “foot rests” just do not do the job that they claim they do.  Plus, my methods are cheaper. :) Try these suggestions and see how it goes….

  • Upside down milk crate. Depending upon the height of your chair, this will provide for a nice leg extension.

  • Hard drive. Sometimes my computer’s hard drive is underneath the desk. This is the perfect height for propping my leg up.

  • Cardboard storage box. When filled, this will not cave in from your leg’s weight. If not filled, try putting a piece of plywood on the top to prevent caving in.

  • Exercise ball. Depending on the space available, there are a variety of sizes you can choose from to prop your leg up onto.

  • Stack of phone books. This is a nice and sturdy way to elevate your leg.

  • Stack of books. Any book will do. Just stack them high enough to provide you with relief.

  • Attache case. If wide enough, you will be able to “stand it up” at just the right height.

  • Backpack. When filled, backpacks of all shapes and sizes can provide some elevation for you and your leg.

  • Boombox. This may be less in height than other items, but it will provide elevation.

  • Step stool. These are great, if you can fit them under your desk. They come in all shapes and sizes, though – so you ought to be able to find one that suits your needs.

Experiment. Whenever you see an item, look at it as a way to elevate your leg. It may work, or it may not.


Find interesting? Kindly share…thanks!
