Iowa Prison Industries understands many K-12 schools want to incorporate movement into their classrooms. Now, IPI offers ball chairs that encourage small movements, improve posture, improve balance, and make learning and collaborating fun!
According to Education Week, "Children who are more active exhibit better focus, faster cognitive processing, and more successful memory retention than kids who spend the day sitting still. Keeping the body active promotes mental clarity by increasing blood flow to the brain, making activity vital to both learning and physical and neurological health." (link)
We have three new ball chairs to showcase: the Zenergy™ Swivel Chair, the Zynergy™ Ball Chair and the Runtz™ Ball Chair!
