Education & Classroom Standing Desks

The World's 1st Education Retrofit Classroom Standing Desk.

If sitting is described as the new smoking and inactivity one of the world's most serious health issues why do we make our children sit in classrooms for 4.5 hours every day?

  • Studies show that introducing low-level activity (standing) into classroom environments has a positive pupil impact on classroom engagement, cognitive performance, academic performance and activity levels.
  • Texas A & M University studies showed standing desks in classroom environments improve…pupil task engagement by 12%, neurocognitive function by 7% and calorific burn by 15-25%.
  • Studies show that in seated classroom environments pupils lose attention in less than 20 minutes. (Leeds Beckett University)
  • Research shows that today’s children are inactive for 10 hours a day or around 70% of their waking day. 4.5 hours of that is spent in the classroom. (Loughborough University)
  • Nearly a third of UK children aged 2 to 15 are overweight or obese. (Yorkshire Sport Foundation)
  • Traditional education environments create harmful sitting patterns at a very early age and are taken into adult life. Inactivity is recognised as one of the world’s most serious health problems. Both the World Health Organisation and Public Health England agree this urgently needs solutions.
  • Today’s children are potentially the 1st generation on course to have a life expectancy 5 years less than their parents. The reason is inactivity.(www.designedtomove.org)
 “Research around the world has shown that standing desks are positive
for the teachers in terms of classroom management and student engagement
as well as positive for the children for their health, cognitive functioning and
academic achievement.”
Mark Benden, PhD, CPE Texas A&M School of Public Health

    Malton primary School Students at EIGER Junior Standing Desk

    “The EIGER Juniors have been really well received and children
    genuinely enthused at the option to go and work at them.  
    They have complimented the classroom set ups and children have adapted
    quickly to using them purposefully across a variety of activities.”
    Richard Allman. Malton Primary School. April 2017
