Many children find it difficult to sit still. They want to move and constantly change their posture. Forced sitting still feels like they're stuck in a corset that limits freedom of movement.
A balance chair from Wigli offers children complete freedom of movement. Children with concentration problems are better able to get rid of their movement restlessness and they stay in their chair or stool longer. As a result, they will pay more attention to their work or the classroom teacher. And they will seek less distraction from children around them.
Active sitting also promotes the development of back and abdominal muscles.
The Wigli A1 is particularly suitable for education settings:
• Height adjustable in conformity with European standards for school furniture;
• The carriage is made of enamelled steel and stainless steel;
• Easily stowed on the desk (upside down).
Research in children with concentration problems
The use of the Wigli has been investigated by the Seminary for Special Needs Education. Researchers at the Seminary saw a markedly increased task orientation in children with concentration problems when they were on the Wigli. Read the full report here. (Dutch)
