Product details

The footrest raises the child's feet so that they have an upright, relaxed posture when studying, which develops a good habit of sitting correctly.

The curved surface encourages the child to rock with their feet in a completely natural way.

Perfect to use in order to vary the working position by the desk or on the floor.

Teenagers and adults can also use the footrest to support their lumbar region, knees or ankles.

Working for extended periods in uncomfortable positions can lead to fatigue, discomfort and pain. An ergonomically adapted environment contributes to better health, creativity, concentration and learning.

The cover can be removed and machine washed.

The anti-slip surface of the textile cover keeps the footrest firmly in place.

Lightweight and simple to move around.

The ÖVNING collection comprises of smart and flexible tools that simplify learning in a fun way and help the child get started, keep their energy up and easily change workspaces.

Very useful as a footrest, easy to cleanMARGARET W.I'm quite short and often my feet don't fully touch the floor when I am sitting, so I always used to sit on my legs on the couch or armchair. This footrest allows me to sit more properly which helps with my circulation and back pain. I love the textured fabric, which keeps both my feet from sliding along its surface and it from sliding along the floor while I am using it. Because it is a slipcover over a plastic(?) form, it is easy to take the cover off and wash it to keep it from getting dirty from having my feet on it all the time. It is also light and not super bulky, so I can slide it under the couch or under the coffee table if I want it out of the way. I have not attempted to use it as a backrest or pillow.5
I really like it and it holds up to daily useSHELEYI like this so much I purchased a 2nd one. It doesn't move unless I move it. And whilst it is marketed for children, it works for adults. The only thing I would change is the color.5

I bought this to useAliceI bought this to use as a foot rest while working at my desk. It doesn't work however due to the configuration of my desk and chair. I do love it though for a book rest and tablet rest. The fabric cover has a non slip surface, so my tablet and or book stay in place. I love this feature!5

Get the homework started

Sometimes it can be hard to find a quiet nook and get started with homework. With the ÖVNING series, we wanted to develop smart tools so your child can easily find peace and quiet. In the room as well as in body and mind.

“When we do home visits and interview children around the world, we see that not all have the same need when they do their homework. Some work best at a desk, while others rather move around or spread out on the floor.” tells Anna Carme, who works with the range in Children’s IKEA. “That’s why quite some flexibility is needed around the homework, and that insight helped us develop ÖVNING.”

Room for lively legs

Still, most children have one thing in common – they can’t sit still for long. “Children’s bodies are full of kinetic energy that needs to be released. Science also shows that the learning benefits from physical activity. No matter if it’s wild play before the homework or moving the body while you study,” says Anna and explains how it inspired to create the footrest in the series. “You can rock it back and forth with your feet and use it as support to sit more ergonomically.”

Have fun and find focus

To have your own place to study is important but it doesn’t have to be at a desk. With the desk divider and the desk accessories organizer in the ÖVNING series, it becomes easier to create an own private space that you can take with you to the dining table or the sofa – and personalize with pictures and fun things. “To have fun and move around regularly is often confused with distraction and lack of concentration. We think it’s the opposite. When the study time is flexible and feels fun, it helps the child to focus. It simply works as a reward and a positive spiral.”
