New Student-Adjustable Desk Introduced

Research has found that children with learning challenges, including dyslexia, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other conditions, perform better in school if allowed to physically move during classroom instruction time. To promote this accommodation, the Marvel Group has introduced The Focus Desk™, which enables children to adjust the height of their desk from a sitting to standing mode without adult assistance.

The Focus Desk was designed by the Marvel Group’s engineers in cooperation with the University of Chicago Hyde Park Day School, a school that provides a supportive setting for children with attention deficits, dyslexia, and other learning disabilities.

Features include:

  • FeatherTouch™ lift system that silently lifts or lowers the desk surface with minimal effort
  • Drop leaves on each side of the desk allow students to expand their workspace
  • Integrated study carrel walls pop up for test taking or quiet study
  • Integrated storage features include hanging files, pencil cups, cabinet space, and an attached backpack hook
  • Lockable casters
