recent pilot study found students who used desks that accommodated standing experienced improvement in executive function and working memory. 

Designed by The Marvel Group, in cooperation with teachers and students at the Hyde Park Day Schools in Chicago and Northfield, Illinois, The Focus Desk enables K-8 students to sit or stand at will. 

The Focus Desk can be silently raised or lowered by students, no tools required, using the FeatherTouch™ lift mechanism, and includes integrated hanging folders, separate interior shelves for books and electronic devices, backpack hooks, and drop-leaf worktop extensions that can be raised or lowered as necessary. The desk rolls on casters and has privacy panels that can set up for test-taking or quiet study and then folded into the built-in holder for storage.
