RW, I have problems with a broken ankle with 2 plates and 11 screws and I would not be with out the rubber foam mat's that I bought at BJ Wholeslae Club a few years ago. It came with I belive 6 squares each 2 foot square. I have only used 2 of them for 2 years plus and they still look like the day I bought them for around $15.00. They are a big help and I think they will help you also.


It's the shoes!

I am on my feet all day, sometimes 12 hour shifts. I found a brand of shoes that does wonders. Go to www.zcoil.com and find the nearest store to you. You would be looking at about $200 a pair, but WORTH every penny!


A drafting chair

A good drafting chair that is adjustable in height, swivels, and rolls on wheels. I set down when ever my bulging disk starts talking. If I stand to long, that chair is my friend. The drafting style chairs will rise to a tall height, built for long sets, and are very comfortable with a footrest ring on the bottom. I rotate the form on the stand and do all the sewing setting down. Stay away from the cheap seats, even when at the ballpark.
