Good news! Reports about how standing desks are helping students to learn have crossed the Atlantic. Recently a number of European television stations have covered this educational phenomenon.

Spain’s Televisio de Catalunya sent reporter Raquel Sans to Virginia’s Alexandria Country Day School to see how Ergotron’s LearnFit™ Adjustable Standing Desks help create an active learning environment. According to teachers and administrators, middle-school students are more productive now, and can stay focused and attentive for longer periods.

DIY Standing Desk?

Let’s all salute the office pioneers who, braving co-worker ridicule and IT angst, reached for the boxes, books, and other cube accessories to create stand-up desks in their sit-only landscapes.

Folks like Nikki, Amy, Ryan and the others, what were they hoping for? More energy, more focus, or maybe even for a back pain free day away from a sit-only workstyle. Like them, Ergotron is focused on pioneering workstations that get people moving too.

He can tell the difference, feeling less stiff, less tired and overall healthier at the end of the day. Can we all say the same? We should. See Nick’s story.
