School counselor Scott Ertl created Bouncy Bands® to help students in his school concentrate while they are seated at their desks, often for five or six hours per day.
I love that Bouncy Bands® is a product that can help ALL students as they learn sitting at a desk throughout their day. As a child I had a hard time focusing and staying on task for a long period of time. I feel if I had this product when I was in school it would of helped me burn some energy and focus better. This product not only helps a student who is over-stimulated but, a child who is under-stimulated, as well. The subtle movements of bouncing your feet on the band helps blood flow to the brain and the best part is the bands do not make any noise and are not distracting to others around you.
“Bouncy Bands® is the answer to every parent, educator, and kids dreams!”
I truly feel that ALL children would benefit from this product in the classroom setting. Let’s think about the school day and the duration of time a student is sitting. They are sitting for long durations of time and the bands allow kids to fidget and move without getting up from their desk. There are numerous reasons a child may need the bouncy band: they may have anxiety, or ADHD, or ADD or they are just kids who need to move around so that they can release some energy or they may need to bounce their feet so they do not fall asleep. No matter the reason the child may need it, if these were on all desks the child would have the bouncy band available literally at their toes whenever they needed it.

“Bouncy Bands® are the #1 Teacher-Approved tools for student success. These fun, innovative, economical bands enable kids to release excess energy to stay on task and improve their test scores, while seated at their desks. With Bouncy Bands, children are happier and less restless while studying, which leads to improved test scores and greater self-esteem.”
“Actively stretching a Bouncy Band, attached to a desk or chair, allows kids to become calm and more focused, alleviating feelings of being extra-stimulated, overanxious, or frustrated. Similarly, when kids are bored, tired, or disinterested Bouncy Bands engage nerve endings on the bottom of their feet to generate ideas and encourage creativity. “

Momee Friend Jackie who is a local teacher has been using Bouncy Bands in her classroom. Two of her students gave a testimonial about the Bouncy Bands:
Student 1: “It actually calms me down, because it makes my feet tired, and that’s good, because then my feet won’t be so fidgety. It makes me more calm.”
Student 2: “I have to be doing something to focus, so if I’m kicking the band, I can focus better. And it doesn’t annoy anyone.”
