A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health shows a welcoming report that providing standing desk in the classroom will give neurocognitive benefits to the students. These benefits could be an improvement in executive function, working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control.
People often focus on the primary benefits of a standing desk: longer life, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. One of the often overlooked benefits is how the standing desk posture improves our breathing.
According to James M. Kendrick, the editor of Workplace Ergonomics News and Environmental Health and Safety News, ‘anti-fatigue mats are engineered to make the body naturally and imperceptibly sway, which encourages subtle movement by calf and leg muscles. This promotes blood flow and keeps the blood from stagnating in the veins, which causes workers to feel fatigued.’
