Opettaja liimasi tennispalloja oppilaiden tuoliin – syy on nerokas. Amy keksi edullisen, mutta tehokkaan niksin auttaakseen oppilaitaan, joilla on Autismi tai Downin oireyhtymä ja jotka kokevat tämän vuoksi aistiyliherkkyyttä.
Tällaisilla oppilailla voi helposti olla keskittymisvaikeuksia, sillä ympäriltä tulevat ärsykkeet haittaavat keskittymistä ja opiskelua. Amy leikkasi tennispallot kahtia ja liimasi ne kuumaliimalla opiskelijoiden tuoliin. Tämän on tarkoitus helpottaa aistiyliherkkiä lapsia, sillä istuimen erilainen tekstuuri saattaa olla juuri se, mitä lapsi kaipaa pystyäkseen keskittymään paremmin. Tavallisen muotoiset, littanat penkit voivat vaikuttaa yliherkän lapsen aisteihin negatiivisesti, jolloin paikallaan istuminen ja keskittyminen on vaikeaa. Vaikka tuolit vaikuttavat kaikkiin lapsiin eri tavalla, on Amy nähnyt jo tuolien positiiviset vaikutukset. HABA. Seating / feelgood designs. 20 Classroom Setups That Promote Thinking.

Scottish and Canadian researchers used a new form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to show it places an unnecessary strain on your back. They told the Radiological Society of North America that the best position in which to sit at your desk is leaning back, at about 135 degrees. Experts said sitting was known to contribute to lower back pain. Data from the British Chiropractic Association says 32% of the population spends more than 10 hours a day seated. Half do not leave their desks, even to have lunch. Two thirds of people also sit down at home when they get home from work.

Twenty two volunteers with healthy backs were scanned using a positional MRI machine, which allows patients the freedom to move - so they can sit or stand - during the test. The furniture debate.

I'm sat in an airplane somewhere over the Gobi desert and all I can think of is how, from a child's perspective, schools and airplanes are much the same. Think about it. The early Victorians, who invented our approach to schools, didn’t have petroleum based plastic, extruded metals, injection mouldings and production lines.
There is no animal on Earth that chooses to sit with a straight back, a right-angled bend at the hips and a right-angled bend at the knee. Desks show similar levels of forethought.
