When your child goes to Primary One, chances are, he or she will be sitting on a chair and using a desk a lot more.
You would probably need a new study table and chair for junior, to accommodate the incoming stationary, school texts and workbooks.
While you may be thinking of heading to a regular furniture shop to buy the new items, allow us to stop you there for a moment.
In most Singapore classrooms, students sit on rigid plastic chairs and desks, on average of about 6 hours a day. After school, when your child gets home, he may be spending another hour or more sitting down using his study table.
Whether it’s doing his homework, playing games on a tablet, your child is bound to spend substantial hours a day on their desk. And this amount of time increases as they move on to formal education.
Not forgetting, screen time in our children’s lives is higher than before. While these smart devices do offer a form of interactive learning for children, on the flipside, they also cause health problems when children use them for hours.
Conventional chairs that we see have a rigid seat that inclines backwards and merges into a seating hollow. Children seated in unsupportive chairs or at the wrong desk height can experience immediate and cumulative effects over time. This can be made worse when they have poor postural habits.
While we can’t change the chairs that are used in school, and can’t change the demands of a computer era, we can provide a more ergonomic-friendly environment for our children at home.
Investing in an ergonomic study table and chair not only prevents your child from developing poor postural habits, it also ensures he or she is in a comfortable and relaxed position. And this creates a more conducive and effective learning environment for your child.

Choosing A Kids Ergonomic Study Table and Chair
When choosing a good ergonomic study table and chair for your child, the key question to keep in mind is: “Does the furniture have features that will grow with my child?”
Different tasks also require different postures. For example, the desk tilt needed for writing is different for other tasks such as reading or drawing.
A good ergonomic study table will have multiple tilt functions and height adjustments to adapt and grow with your child.
Children grow fast, and you would want the furniture to grow with them too.
