With the height-adjustable AlphaBetter Desk by Safco, students have the opportunity to sit or stand throughout their day. They can also expel any extra fidgety energy with the patented Swinging Pendulum Footrest. In other words, this standing desk allows students to move more freely throughout the day, which in turn supports better physical health as well as focus and attention. It pairs perfectly with the AlphaBetter Stool when students want a break from standing. 

Active learning is heavily supported by research, so incorporating ergonomic and movement-friendly desks into the classroom is vital. This allows students to combat the sedentary lifestyle that they are often subject to in the classroom, and it facilitates an optimal learning experience. 

In AlphaBetter classrooms, postural support, ergonomic comfort and attentive learning come first. Available in two desk sizes and two desktop types, with or without a book box.
