Teachers welcome standing desks in the classroom

(CNN) – Teachers across the nation are trying to get their hands on this standing desk.

Structural engineer, Mathias Ellegiers, designed a wooden standing desk for his girlfriend back in 2012 when she was studying for her doctorate.

A teacher friend saw the creation and requested a smaller version for her students, and they loved it.

Ellegiers and two other partners launched the standing desk manufacturing company called Jaswig in 2014.

These desks are now in more than 25 schools nationwide; giving students a new way to burn energy and get work done.
