BENEFITS OF ACCORDION CHAIRS:
Engage your core muscles, keep your spine supple, improve your circulation, and ease your breathing.
Experts agree that we need to strengthen, not “support” our bodies. We should sit up naturally, using our own muscles instead of leaning passively against a seat back. On ErgoErgo, your body feels a new ease and freedom. The core muscles are engaged, the spine achieves its natural curve, the pelvis gently moves, and the legs stretch.
ErgoErgo is made of UV-stable recyclable technopolymer and can be used indoors and outdoors. Once you sit on ErgoErgo, ordinary chairs seem – well, just ordinary. It’s ergonomic, ergo, it’s made for you.
Kids ErgoErgo is a safe and healthy way to sit. Children are happier and learn better when they can sit actively.
Teachers report that students sitting on the accordion chair often improve significantly in posture, concentration, participation, and behavior. Moving and stretching addresses key aspects of UDL (Universal Design for Learning), including enhancing self-regulation through stress reduction, decreasing hyperactivity, and increasing focus.
Children love the ErgoErgo friendly shape and its rainbow of bright colors. Sitting on the ErgoErgo is just plain fun! Made of recyclable technopolymer.
The ErgoErgo is perfect for working and relaxing. Use it in offices, schools, libraries, dorms, hotels, healthcare facilities…the possibilities are endless. The ErgoErgo is great public seating. And it’s compact enough for the smallest space.
TheErgoErgo compresses slightly when you sit on it to the height of a standard chair, which makes it perfect for a standard desk height. Because you can adjust it by tilting the seat or scooting backward or forwards, the standard size is suitable for individuals from 5′ – 6’4″ tall.
The Adult ErgoErgo offers all the benefits of the smaller sizes, your body is free to move, your core is engaged. With its larger seat, the adult ErgoErgo provides more comfort for taller, larger people, and more stability for every body type.
Suitable for height: 5’7” – 6’4” tall. Weight load up to 250 pounds.
Chairs are proudly made in the USA
NEW Tabletop Upgrade: Swap out the standard blue tabletop color for whiteboard tabletop
Pedal Desk Benefits:
Brain Based Movement:
The pedal desk is designed specifically to put the brain and body into its most optimal learning state.
Promotes Low intensity steady state movement (LISS), crossing the midline, optimizes blood flow and oxygen to the brain, & Activates BDNF, coined "Miracle Gro" for the brain by Dr. John Ratey. BDNF activates the brain in the process known as neurogenesis- the growth of new brain cells.
Pedal Desk Features:
Manufactured in the USA - Action Based Learning is the Manufacturer of the Original Pedal Desk. All Pedal Desks are steel welded and built for high frequency use in school settings. Desks are designed to hold up against even the most "active" students. Includes 10 yr direct from mfg extended warranty and factory direct discounts for schools.
Designed specifically for this age group to support proper posture and movement appropriate for elementary age students.
Movement is user powered, there is no resistance on elementary pedal desks. Based on brain research, adding a certain level of exertion during the learning process can actually work to counteract the benefits of moving. The Pedal Desk for elementary students is designed to activate Low Intensity Steady State Movement (LISS). To learn more about LISS, view the Science and Research behind Action Based Learning)
CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION Children with pedals under their desk can work their legs in a motion similar to a bicycle, while participating in classroom discussion, or doing their classwork. Desk is user powered, making movement optional! Although rare, students not interested in moving, have the option to relax and listen in class!
PARTNER WORK While one child pedals, their partner stands on a balance board on the opposite side of the pedal desk.
ADD ACADEMICS Teachers use the pedal movement to engage students in countless activities! For example: Students answer questions during instruction by either pedaling forward, backward, pausing, speeding up, or slowing down pedaling!
MORNING WAKE UP - Start the morning off right with a brain booster! Have students warm-up their brains with a Walk & Talk session ( suggested classroom activities provided by author Shoecraft, Lengel, Moize in ABL Books & Manuals)
GO FULLY KINESTHETIC! Outfit an entire classroom with multiperson pedal desks, and various movement stations (video below). Research indicates variety is KEY when implementing alternative seating and kinesthetic desks into an active classroom
OR START SMALL -start with 1 single pedal desk into your classroom & implement rotation schedule for all students to benefit from the movement!
Boomerboard activities can be incorporated with academics to teach and review lessons, increase classroom engagement, or use throughout the day to transition, brain boosters, or make learning fun with academic games!Activities are endless! Strategies are teacher friendly, time efficient, and make learning fun! A fun tool designed to introduce purposeful movement into the classroom,Students experience both the physical and neurological benefits of jumping, along with 50+ additional exercises to aid in balance, rhythm, core strength, spatial awareness, endurance, and can be used to work on all 12 foundations of learning readiness. The silent, non-distracting motion allows for a reprieve from the traditional classroom setting. Research shows that purposeful movement prepares the brain to learn, and creates an optimal environment for students.
Weight: 6lbs Dimensions: 22.2 x 18 x 6 Target Age Group: 1st Grade -12th Grade
Reading balance boards are a great choice for teachers who want to incorporate movement and learning on a small budget. Use the balance boards in your "reading" corner or let partners stand on the balance boards while reviewing flashcards!
Sold in sets of 5
Dimensions: 15.75” diameter & 3.75” H
The Pedal Stool allows users to add movement under their existing desks! For use under under a standing desk, counter height, or stand alone. Pedal stool allows for more portability, and silent pedaling motion allows teachers to easily incorporate into the classroom.
