- FootFidget 2.0
The original FootFidget Foot Rest is designed to be used as a dynamic foot rest with your existing classroom desk or chair to provide an energy releasing activity, as well as improving the students focus and posture.
FootFidget Foot Rest with elastic straps and padded center provides the same energy releasing, focus attaining results that therapists have gained by using hand fidgets. It provides these same positive results, but leaves hands free for classroom work. FootFidget also puts students into the proper "ready to learn" position.
Kids who crave sensory input or have trouble paying attention appreciate the discreet movements they can make with this footrest, keeping them active during class without requiring them to move from their desks. Sturdy, non-slip design will accommodate students of all ages.
Attaches easily to most classroom desks to provide an outlet for restless, busy feet so that students can focus, concentrate and learn better. FootFidget was designed specifically for school desks, it can also fit comfortably on some walkers and small tables. Fits most classroom desks with 4 tubular legs of 7/8" or 1" width. Includes attaching hardware.
The desk may need to be raised a little bit to allow for the space needed for the student’s leg movement up and down. It is suggested to raise the sitting desk slightly to allow additional leg room/height needed to properly use the FootFidget Foot Rest while sitting.
You may want to try different height chairs and even low stools to maximize the benefits of the FootFidget Foot Rest. The student may need to be reminded to use a gentle motion when using the FootFidget while sitting – there is less space between the knee and desk in this position.
