I bought this for a co-worker who was complaining about her back due to her poor posture when she was sitting at he desk. Since she has the new chair, she sits straighter and also says her abdominal muscles are getting worked out, too.
as I had previously read on other reviews, its difficult to find a good fit for air in the ball, it tends to lose air so I seem to have to fill with air every other day...It's constantly too high or too low. Really can't seem to find a happy medium....is always losing air...and I am not a heavy person. I only weigh about 142 lbs....I rather have a desk chair that also has arms...I would not recommend to someone that sits at a desk for 7 hours of their day....if you pump the ball up too much, it hurts your butt....mixed reviews on this...I sit at my desk for at least 7 hrs a day.
The chair was easy to assemble. The package had been rolled, but none of the parts were damaged. Simple straight forward instructions. The pump works well and fits in anyone's desk drawer for refill time. The chair is comfortable but may be a bit short for some people. My wife loves it.
I ordered this ball to relieve back pain/strain while sitting for long periods of time at the computer. I have chronic lower back trouble and sitting on the ball takes the strain off. It has been a little hard to find the right amount of air I need in the ball, but it has proved to be 100% better than my traditional office chair. I am sure that in a month or so, I will have it perfect...
