ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As students across the country prepare to go back to school, an innovative seating system can help them improve learning outcomes by allowing them to move their bodies in class. Designed to benefit any student, the Vidget Flexible Seating System also helps the growing number of children with Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD or Autism.
Viggi Corp.'s patented Vidget provides a safe, quiet rocking motion that helps students release energy, reduces tension and frustration, helps improve balance and allows them to be in control of their own physical movement. Sensory bumps in the side handles provide a tactile experience for children who need extra sensory input. Vidget provides a flexible learning environment that changes based on group and individual needs. More than a chair, it becomes a stool or a desk by turning it over.
"With the Vidget, it's now okay for kids to fidget in class, in a safe way," said Sandra Turner, Vidget inventor and Viggi Corp. CEO. "Research shows that students perform better, are more attentive and focused, and are less disruptive in the classroom when they are allowed to move naturally. Our Vidget seating system helps create a healthier learning environment where students of all ages, including kids with higher sensory needs, are more available for learning."
A kindergarten teacher said, "Before Vidgets, one of the students consistently wrote just a word or two during a writing task. Now she sits down for extended periods to write five- to six-sentence paragraphs. I'm so grateful to have the Vidgets to give her the sensory input she needs so that the output matches her ability level. I think every kindergarten class should have them."
Manufactured in the U.S., the Vidget is available in five sizes to fit any toddler, child, teen or young adult.
