Exercise Balance Ball

The Exercise Balance Ball is a rubber or an inflated plastic ball invented by Aquilino Cosani in 1963. First used in newborn and infant treatment programs, you can now find these balls in gyms, exercise class, training grounds, and in physiotherapy classes and are common for individuals and patients who needed personal care from doctors or fitness experts. Nowadays, we use these balls almost in every place including offices, living rooms, private homes, and in sports facilities. Athletes and players use exercise balls as sports equipment to help perform a myriad of exercise or sports by leaning or sitting on the ball while maneuvering or assuming different positions without the support of the arms. The health benefits of using exercise balance balls include maintaining individuals core stability, reducing back and spine problems, keeping the right posture, and for muscle balance.

The Exercise Balance Ball has a range of overall sizes between 21.65”-33.5" (55-85 cm).

Common Questions
Common Questions
Why do office chairs have wheels?
Office chairs have wheels for a variety of reasons, but the most important reason is for the ease of mobility around the office without standing—a design feature originally implemented by Charles Darwin to move around his laboratory. Most office chairs today have five legs for improved stability when moving on the wheels.
What is lumbar support in office chairs?
Lumbar support in office chairs refers to the form of support given to the lower back. Lumbar support is built into the shape of the office chair and is designed to be pushed flush against the small of the back when sitting in order to keep the spine in natural alignment.
How high should a desk chair be?
Desk chairs should be set to a height just below the height of your knee cap when standing. Setting your desk chair to this height allows your feet to be flat on the floor and your knees to be comfortably and ergonomically bent at a 90° angle.
