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.

Why is Mindfulness Important and Relevant in the Classroom?
Mindfulness aids the brain in anchoring information and improves memory retrieval, preparing the brain to take a test, and combining many skills for higher level thinking. Mindfulness, as often described in young children, is the practice of paying attention in a very special way. It teaches children to build an awareness of oneself, others, and one's surroundings. Specifically, mindfulness training can help with observing, detachment, and self-compassion.

Two Person Standing Desk
KC-86 Two Person Standing Desk - BLUE Tabletop
KC-86M Two Person Standing Desk - MARKER BOARD Tabletop
For many students everyday classroom life involves trying to sit still, taking focus away from learning. With the standing desks, students are able to stand up during the school day and move without being a distraction to their classmates or teachers, while also potentially improving their concentration. Standing desks gives students the chance to move while they work on projects, papers and even takes a test. Studies have shown that moving may help increase academic abilities, and facilitate learning.
Texas A&M researchers have shown, for the first time, evidence that standing desks in classrooms can slow the increase in elementary school children’s body mass index (BMI)—a key indicator of obesity—by an average of 5.24 percentile points. “Research around the world has shown that standing desks are positive for the teachers in terms of classroom management andstudent engagement, as well as positive for the children for their health,cognitive functioningand academic achievement,” said Mark Benden, PhD, CPE, an associate professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the Texas A&M School of Public Health and an author of the study. “It’s literally a win-win, and now we have hard data that shows it is beneficial for weight control.”Click here to read the full story!

What are the benefits of the balance desk?
The balance desk is simple to use while engaging students with purposeful movements. Students use ﬂexion and extension to propel the balance board forward and backwards while engaging in classwork on the large built in desk. The simplicity of the movement is what makes this one of the most popular among the students. The balance desk promotes a fundamental process to learning, crossing the midline
Why is crossing the body's midline important?
Crossing the body midline is an important developmental skill needed for many everyday tasks such as writing, reaching towards your foot to put on a shoe and sock with both hands and hitting a ball with a bat. When your child spontaneously crosses the midline with the dominant hand, then the dominant hand is going to get the practice that it needs to develop good fine motor skills. If your child avoids crossing the midline, learning to write will be much more difficult as they will have two less skilled hands rather than one stronger, more skilled hand. Difficulty crossing the midline also makes it difficult to track a moving object from one side to the other or track from left to right when reading, meaning reading can also be delayed.
