Wobble and Ball Chairs

Kids Kore Wobble Chairs and Ball Chairs will allow students to get their “wiggles” out by encouraging subtle movements without getting up from their seats. Providing students with a variety of seating options will help to naturally facilitate paying attention, sitting up straighter, and strengthening back muscles. Research shows improvements in seated behaviors, when students are provided with seating options that encourage alerting, movement input. These chairs would be available to general education and special education teachers in the elementary schools to be utilized by students that would benefit from movement during class instruction and/or class work. Teachers reported a decrease in negative seated behaviors, less redirecting needed, an increase in work productivity and attention to task, and an improved attitude towards classwork.
