The study gave students in year 2 and year 4 a chance to choose fit balls, ottomans, tall tables and office chairs with wheels.
It found 97 per cent of students felt flexible furniture was positive for learning.
"At the moment, in our data, we're finding that students actually really like office chairs, that ability to wheel around and have some back support," lead researcher Julia Morris told Sam Longley on ABC Radio Perth.
"Children as young as year 3 can identify that they'd like some back support.
"But they also like to be able to pick up ottomans and carry them around the classroom and have a whole range of things that they might be able to access that's within their reach within the classroom walls."
Dr Morris said 25 per cent of schools already used flexible furniture and intuitively felt it was beneficial, but until now didn't have any research to back it up.
She said students who were surveyed felt it had a tangible link to their learning.
"Things like assisting their concentration, helping them to focus better, helping them to manage injuries," she said.
"It also helped those 21st century learning skills that we want to see: collaboration, connecting with their peers, thinking critically. They all found that these things were benefits of using the flexible furniture in their classrooms."
