Marvel Focus Desk Creator Nominated in "Moms Making a Difference" Awards

Nancy Dellamore recognized for creating an innovative sit/stand classroom desk to help students achieve better learning and health.

CHICAGO, Jan. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Nancy Dellamore, creator of the innovative sit/stand Marvel Focus Desk, has been nominated in the annual "Moms Making a Difference" Awards. Sponsored by MASK The Magazine, the awards recognize mothers who have taken extraordinary steps to improve the lives of children in their communities and beyond.

Nancy Dellamore, Product Manager for furniture manufacturer The Marvel Group, was inspired to create a height-adjustable desk for classrooms based on the experience of her own son. Diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven, Dellamore's son needed the option to stand and move during class time in order to learn effectively. Current university research supports Dellamore's observation: children with ADHD, dyslexia, and other conditions process information better when allowed to stand in class. Working with educators at the Hyde Park Day School in Northfield, Illinois, Dellamore brought in Marvel Group's design team to develop a student-operable desk that silently can change from sitting to standing without interrupting the class. Dellamore's product, The Marvel Focus Desk, is now used in classrooms in 26 states.

MASK, an acronym for Mothers Awareness on School-Age Kids, is dedicated to providing parenting solutions for today's families. MASK the Magazine addresses important topics and gives students, parents, and the community the knowledge and tools to manage potential challenges.
