The Research-Backed Benefits of Standing Desks in the Classroom
Create A Healthier Place to Learn
Physical activity—whether it’s team sports or playtime—has been linked to better success in schools and improved health.5 That’s why we’re committed to promoting active education spaces that promote movement and collaboration.
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."
