How it Works
Poor Posture = Poor Attention
Everyone intuitively realizes that attention, focus, and physical comfort are important for a student to be successful at school, and even more so for children who have special needs. Working as physical therapists in a school setting, we have serviced classrooms with diverse student populations whose seating needs are as different as their learning styles.
Turn Your Classroom into an Active Classroom
Research shows students who stand up, move, and fidget in the classroom have more focus and success at school-the student’s performance will improve. That’s why we developed the Patented Standing Desk Conversion Kit and the FootFidget® Footrest series!
Student Seating Needs Can Be as Different as Their Learning Styles. As experienced School Therapists we know that attention, focus, and physical comfort are important for a student to be successful at school.
When a student is in an ergonomically correct position that supports their learning style and comfort, their performance will improve in the classroom and their entire school experience will be enhanced. Set your students up for success by offering them the seating choice that best suits them!
Sitting or standing, our Standing Desk Conversion Kit and FootFidget® Footrest series can position your students to succeed.

Go Green! Recycle Your Class Desks into Standing Desks
Don’t throw away that classroom desk to make room for the new standing desks. RECYCLE those desks and SAVE money by turning those desks into standing desks! The extra bonus is that when purchasing the Standing Desk Conversion Kit, you not only get a standing desk, you also get the Attachable FootFidget® Footrest! The Attachable FootFidget® provides the proprioceptive input to further increase focus, attention, and provide ergonomic comfort throughout the day versus standing alone.
• Recycle your present desk into a standing desk – having all the desks in your classroom the same style (color, etc) keeps continuity and minimizes the appearance of the change. This reduces the potential ‘stigma’ of the student being perceived as needing a ‘different’ desk to learn. It is simply taller, and has a ‘cool’ FootFidget® to use!
• Reduce the cost of providing your students with a standing desk and FootFidget®.
• Stretch your schools resources further and have more students gaining the benefit of standing and fidgeting for less money.
• Reduce your Schools Carbon Footprint.
• Reduce your Schools contribution to your local land fill.
• Save natural Resources.
What Researchers Are Saying
“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!
