This desk is tremendously helpful for several of my students who just can’t sit still. The standing option was perfect for the ‘knee sitters’ (kids who sit up on their knees in a chair) and for my ‘low-flyers’ (those who just can’t sit down). One student in particular went from constantly being redirected to being focused and sitting. It was amazing to watch how quickly this happened.

The Safco® Products AlphaBetter® Stand Up Desk features an adjustable frame allowing the desk to accommodate students in grades 3-12. It features the patented Swinging Pendulum™ Footrest Bar (or fidget bar) that noiselessly incorporates natural movement for non-disruptive fidgeting, which may help improve cardiovascular health and may help to increase focus. The desk is durable in any learning environment with a 1” square powder-coated, 16-gauge welded steel base. The large desktop is made from Thermoplastic-laminated MDF and is chemical and impact resistant. Additional features include an open storage shelf and a tri-perimeter pencil groove.
“I think this desk would be beneficial for every classroom, and l highly encourage districts to purchase these desks for use with ‘attention challenged’ students.”
"The AlphaBetter Desk is worthy of the GEI Seal of Endorsement. The desk is easy to assemble and use; it makes a positive difference in the classroom. Students who need to expend some energy can do so quietly with this desk without interrupting the learning of others."
