  1. An Un-Comfortable Truth: Re-Thinking the American School Desk

    Apr 24, 2015  //  by admin  //  blog  //  No Comments

    If we could re-design our office space to our own specifications, a comfortable desk and chair would rank at the top of the list. Ergonomics have found their way into everyday office terminology, and for good reason. We are more productive when our bodies are supported by comfortable and functional design. So why should our children be any different as they learn in school?

    American school-aged children spend nearly as much time in their chairs and at their desks as we do in our offices. Yet for many children, slouching over or scooting to the edge of the seat to reach their desks is a daily reality. It is rare for a student to have a chair and desk that fits them well. Just because you position a child correctly doesn’t mean they’ll sit correctly, of course, but cushions, stools, and user-friendly chairs and desks can assist children in better body mechanics and more productive school work.
