Students in classroom

Teachers and Therapists

”The Standing Desk Conversion Kit and FootFidget® footrest are an intuitive answer to what physical and occupational therapists have known for years. Fidgeting helps focus. Movement (standing) has positive effects on concentration, memory, posture, mood, and obesity, while decreasing negative behaviors in the classroom. It is the student of tomorrow who will be the recipient of a classroom that is truly set up to facilitate and support learning.”
– Susan, school-based physical therapist

“As an occupational therapist working in schools, I know that the benefits of standing and fidgeting in the classroom are significant. Benefits include enhanced mental focus, improved posture, increased energy and caloric output, as well as improvements in handwriting and attention.”
– Kathy, school-based occupational therapist

“I think every classroom needs to have a group of standing desks and FootFidgets® for the students to take a break. Some students need to have a dedicated desk because they need them all the time. It just makes sense that sitting at these school desks makes the students so uncomfortable that it is hard to focus and learn. They need to move!” – Lorie, third grade teacher

“The FootFidget® footrest has the perfect movement to facilitate core activation and decrease low back stress, as well as allowing the student to fidget and channel their excess energy. Combined with the standing desk, students improve their attention and focus in the classroom.” – Terry, school-based physical therapist

“Until someone mentioned it, I never realized I never sit to teach. I walk around the room and lecture and talk. I could never teach by sitting at a desk! How can I expect my students to learn sitting?” – Linda, seventh grade teacher

“Kids today are used to such a fast-paced environment (electronic games, iPads, etc.) that to ask these kids to come into school and sit still and expect them to be able to focus and learn is unrealistic. As soon as I brought in the Standing Desk Conversion Kits and FootFidgets®, every student in my class wanted to try it. Now my back row is all standing desks. Some students use them all the time, while others are available for students to use them when they need a break. My classroom now feels like there is an energy of learning because the kids are happy and much more enthusiastic about learning and school in general.” – George, sixth grade teacher

“It was a wonderful transformation in my classroom when the Standing Desk Conversion Kits and FootFidgets® arrived at our school. The students in my class love using them, and it has improved their attention and decreased negative behaviors significantly!” – Second grade teacher

“The Standing Desk Conversion Kit is great. It was quick and easy to convert some of my classroom desks to standing desks. The desks blend into the classroom because they are the classroom desk, just a little higher. My students love that they have the choice to stand or to sit. The FootFidget® provides a way to release some energy. All my students want to use the standing desks.” – Mark, fourth grade teacher


“I hated being in class because I can’t sit still so long…it’s so boring. I kinda like school because I can stand up and move around a little. I use my FootFidget® a lot to help me pay attention.” – Jacob, fourth grade

“I had trouble paying attention in class. I hate sitting still and just sitting there in that hard chair. Now that I am using my standing desk, I can do better. I can stand or sit (on the stool) and I can use my FootFidget® to help me pay attention more. I love it!” – Robert, fifth grade

“I think I can learn more when I can stand up to do my work. I can fidget with my FootFidget® and still write and read. I’m a good student now and everyone knows it!” – Jessica, sixth grade

“I just love my standing desk and FootFidget®! It is so cool that I can stand up in class and not get in trouble. My FootFidget® helps me pay attention more. I don’t know why it helps me so much, but it does. Now everyone in class wants to have a standing desk!” – Sam, third grade

“I hated when my teacher called my name because I couldn’t sit still. Now that I can stand up I can pay attention a lot better. I really like my FootFidget® because it helps me get my extra energy out so I don’t get in trouble!” – Tyler, fourth grade
