AlphaBetter® Adjustable-Height Stand-Up Desk 28" x 20"

Studies conducted by the National Education Association show that the brain operates best when the body is attentive and engaged. There is a direct correlation between student performance, ergonomics and physical activity. Active learning is better learning, and featuring ergonomically sound furniture in the classroom is essential, especially today with all of the added time students spend in sedentary positions. 

In conventional classrooms, all teachers can do to aid their students is to ask them to “sit up straight and pay attention.” With the AlphaBetter ® Desk, students have the option to sit, stand or alternate between the two, as well as the opportunity to use the swinging footrest/fidget bar to redirect fidgeting behavior, and expend energy.

In AlphaBetter classrooms, students receive the postural support they need to focus on instruction so teachers can teach with fewer interruptions.
