Sedentary Health Report May be of Concern

Last week a new report from Annals of Internal Medicine found that longer sitting time was associated with higher risk for death, heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes regardless of physical activity. Educators may wonder about the implications it hold for today’s classrooms, including students who spend over six hours seated at their desks.

Ergotron's LearnFit™ Adjustable Standing Desk aim to supports active learning environments in the classrooom. With the use of a hand lever, students can change the height of their desktops so that they can work and collaborate in the way that is natural for them.

Standing more throughout the day increases blood circulation, burns more calories, and helps maintain muscle tone and insulin effectiveness. LearnFit can play a part in a school environment designed to improve health and academic outcomes.
