4 Benefits of Adaptive Seating for Students

Sitting isn’t a static activity; people continually move and adjust. While this may seem self-evident, many existing seating products do not accommodate the natural tendencies of humans to move. KI seized this opportunity to develop design standards that recognized a broader range of positions.  Below are 4 benefits of adaptive seating, and how they benefit students and staff alike:

4 BENEFITS OF ADAPTIVE SEATING

1.  Adaptive Seating improves learning outcomes.  Studies show that movement enhances learning outcomes through greater attention, comprehension and retention.

2.  Adaptive Seating places a premium on comfort through numerous seating postures.  Comfortable seating reduces physical and emotional stress, offering users a greater sense of overall well-being.

3.  Adaptive Seating is a powerful recruitment and retention tool.  The best furniture solutions reflect the lifestyles and behaviors of its users. Consider adaptive seating a competitive advantage in the “talent wars” for attracting and retaining the “best and brightest” in higher education and corporations.

4.  Adaptive Seating promotes greater space utilization.  Users gravitate to products that adapt to their style.  Spaces that are furnished with adaptive seating will be utilized more often than ones with prescriptive seating, encouraging use in an otherwise "dead space."

Below are a variety of KI Furniture products that display adaptive seating and its benefits:
