Study Recommends Standing Desks At Schools
As Americans wage a war on childhood obesity, the cost effective solution of replacing traditional sitting desks with height adjustable standing desks has gained worldwide attention in the media and throughout our school systems. No longer is just implementing better nutritionally balanced meals the only solution to the ever increasing problem of childhood obesity. There is another option available to schools in the form of adding height adjustable standing desks.
Recent studies have found conclusive that students who had been using a standing desk while at school had an average drop in body mass index (BMI) of 3 percent over a two year period.
The evidence in recent studies is conclusive that students who have switched to standing desks in their classrooms burn 15 percent more calories, have less body fat, a higher attention span, feel better, and are easier to manage by teachers. It’s a no-brainer for sure, standing desks are the smart choice for our school systems moving toward a smarter more health conscience academic future. A long term plan to initiate standing desks in school may be in the works, and MultiTable.com is here to work with schools and school districts to make the switch from stationary sitting desks to sit stand height adjustable desks in their classrooms.
What our MultiTable.com Standing Desk school customers are saying…
“The new wave in education is personalized learning, which acknowledges that all students learn differently. Some students work better standing up, some sitting down, some laying down. The table will allow students in 4th grade classrooms to work alone or in groups while standing at the table instead of traditional desks.”
