Elevate Student Performance with Standing Desks

Smarter Solution

A Smarter Solution for Classrooms

Physical activity—whether it’s team sports or playtime—has been linked to better success in schools and improved health.1 Yet many schools face shortened recess times to accommodate more test preparation time. Budget cuts have eliminated extracurricular sports and shortened physical education. More technology in classrooms has also led to more sedentary behavior.

As a result, students are missing physical and mental health benefits associated with moving more and sitting less. Both teachers and parents are faced with children who are struggling with a range of health problems from depression to obesity.

“We are finding that with standing desks in schools, the children are more focused and more on task. This is great news for teachers."

Vari® is committed to promoting active education spaces that promote movement and collaboration and combat sedentary behavior in K-12 classrooms. With high-quality, affordable, research-based standing desk solutions we help create healthier and more productive classrooms for educators and students.

Our desks were developed based on research from leading education experts, including Dr. Mark Benden, Director of the Ergonomics Center at Texas A&M“ University, who said, "We are finding that with standing desks in schools, the children are more focused and more on task. This is great news for teachers."
