A Smarter Solution for Home-Based Learning
Physical activity—whether it’s team sports or playtime—has been linked to improved learning and health1. Yet, many children today remain sedentary while learning. As a result, children are missing the physical and mental benefits associated with moving more and sitting less. This is why sit-stand desks are a great option for increasing movement while learning. In fact, standing desks typically increase student engagement up to 15%.
Dr. Mark Benden, the director at the Center for Ergonomics at Texas A&M University, added that
“We are finding that with standing desks in schools, the children are more focused and more on task.”
To help combat sedentary behavior, Vari® has created high-quality, affordable, and research-based standing desk solutions to create healthier and happier learning environments. With fast and free shipping, it's easier than ever to improve your child’s learning experience.
