School districts coast to coast are discovering the quantifiable, research-backed benefits of student standing desks. From enhanced wellness to a boost in performance, the reasons to transform your educational institution into an active learning environment are practically limitless.
Studies have shown that endorphin levels rise when a person is active, causing a feeling of alertness, a reduction in stress, as well as more ambition to take on difficult projects. And because standing triples energy expenditure (1) as compared with sitting, it also regulates cortisol levels, a stress hormone that increases with inactivity and has links to depression and decreased energy.
In a study conducted by the American Diabetes Association (2), researchers found that participants who alternated between sitting and standing boasted slimmer waistlines, lower BMIs, and healthier fat and blood sugar levels than those who primarily sat. Additional studies have consistently shown that standing reduces the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease (3).
In a study (4) from Washington University in St. Louis, researchers found that standing can encourage more creative and collaborative group work.
As more and more schools explore the benefits of Stand Up Desk Store student standing desks, teachers report they are particularly effective with students prone to fidgeting, talking, and other forms of disruptive behavior.
