Many of my students have ADHD and it is difficult for them to sit and pay attention in traditional classroom furniture. The wobble seats, wobble stools, and balance balls are perfect for students who need to move and bounce in order to focus. The physical activity that flexible seating provides is linked to higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior. Some of the immediate benefits of flexible seating include burning more calories, using up excess energy, improving metabolism, increasing motivation and engagement, creating a better oxygen flow to the brain, and improving core strength and overall posture. In fact, a paper by Matthew T. Mahar, et al finds that: "Simple in-class activities can boost performance. Studies suggest that children who participate in short bouts of physical activity within the classroom have more on-task behavior, with the best improvement seen in students who are least on-task initially".
