What is the idea behind the ball chair?
Most flat chairs are very stable to sit on. In contrast, the rounded shape of ball chairs means that your body is slightly less stable during sitting, which in turn makes a number of muscles in the trunk and spine work harder to keep you in a good position. The idea is that by working these muscles more they will eventually get stronger and more resistant to fatigue, which ultimately, will help improve your posture and reduce the risk of back injury. Sitting on a ball may sound like hard work, but the reality is the body quickly adapts to the change in workload and you won’t even notice you are sitting on the ball after a few days.

Why is it important to exercise my muscles during sitting on Ball Seating?
In recent years, there has been growing evidence which indicates that core muscles (deep muscle layers that are positioned close to the spine and abdomen) help provide structural support to the spine. A number of researchers believe that maintaining good core strength may help reduce the risk of back injury and improve posture.
