Many health experts say too much sitting can lead to issues such as joint problems, weight gain and increased risk of serious heath problems. Many of us may not be able to sit less, but active sitting chairs and stools provide benefits of healthy active sitting that can improve our health and fitness.
Active sitting engages the body’s core muscles and results in constant micro movements with correct posture, all of which delivers on the physical and mental benefits of active seating.
Active Sitting Benefits for Classroom Seating
Active Seating Chairs are producing remarkable results in classrooms. In addition to the usual benefits of core strengthening and better posture, teachers have reported improvement in students’ ability to focus, take notes and engage in class discussions while sitting on Active Seating Chairs and Stools. Active sitting leads to increased brain stimulation, alertness and learning ability.
Neurophysiologist and educator, Carla Hannaford, Ph.D., author of Smart Moves – Why Learning is Not All in Your Head, states:
“The more closely we consider the elaborate interplay of brain and body, the more clearly one compelling theme emerges; movement is essential to learning. Movement awakens and activates many of our mental capacities. Movement integrates and anchors new information and experience into our neural networks.”
Exercise balls are especially effective for students who suffer from attention deficit disorder because the ball provides the bounce which gives them an outlet to release pent up energy.
