    • very happy with this product
      Verified Purchase

      I have been using this chair for a couple of weeks now and I'm pretty happy with it. It's been very good on my back, my posture has been much better while sitting for long periods. I really don't want to complain about this product, it's price is very good for how comfortable it is. The only thing that I did need to change had to do with the wheel locks. The manufacturer put them on all four wheels, which is needed if you are going to use this chair for exercise, but I would randomly step on one of the brakes when sitting down. A few days ago I cut the plastic brake tabs off of the wheels and haven't had a problem since. I will buy another one when this one wears out.

      I've had this chair for more than a year and would give it 10 stars if could! I bought this for work because as an office manager at a dental practice, I spend a lot of time sitting. It helps with posture and I definitely slouch less when sitting at my desk. I don't have back problems, but I did strain my lower back about six months ago and would not have been able to work if not for this chair...I just added more air to make the seat harder and it got me through until my back recovered! The wheels roll smoothly, even on low pile carpeting. Helpful hint: when you first inflate the ball it will appear too small for the base, so start the process a few days before you intend to use the chair, and add air a couple of times a day as the rubber expands and the ball appears to be deflating. Within 2 or 3 days the rubber will reach its maximum stretch and the ball will fit securely in its base.

      Verified Purchase

      The ball chair is perfect for table or desk...you will need to inflate the ball over serveral days for it to reach its correct 'hight'.

    • suits my needs
      Verified Purchase

      The ball is a bit small so I only gave 4 stars. It suits my needs but if you wanted to use it at a taller desk another larger ball would need to be purchased.

    • Great alternative to an office chair.
      Verified Purchase

      I sit at my desk all day, and wanted something to at least make me feel more active. This chair is great. Just be sure to lock the ball into the guards. Another posted noted issues with the locks on the wheels; they are annoying, and I find that I inadvertantly lock them while moving around. It would be nice if they were removable. Otherwise, I'm completely happy at this point. Great product, but I wish it was cheaper!

    • love my new chair!
      Verified Purchase

      I love this chair! It helps with my slouching and my leg-crossing, both of which I am always working to stop. The only downsides to this chair is that I have to re-inflate it every few months, and the breaks on the wheels are easily tapped, which is irritating, and one of them has already broken off (likely the fault of a student, but anyway). The final thing that I found problematic was that this particular chair was too short for my desk, and I had to purchase chair leg extenders from http://www.gaiam.com/product/classic-balance-ball-chair-leg-extenders/95-1561.html

    • PHENOMENAL CHAIR
      Verified Purchase

      I love this chair. I read the reviews before purchase. Your feet do tend to lock the rollers. The chair is sturdy enough I felt confident breaking the tabs off to disable the locking so easily. It may still be lockked, you just use your hands

    • Great concept but would be better if adjustable
      Verified Purchase

      Sitting on this chair/ball definitely relieves the pressure off my back but it is too low. I believe a bigger ball can be placed in it but it would be better if the height was adjustable through the base somehow.

    • For ACTIVE kids & for adults seeking core strength
      Verified Purchase

      Bought this for a hyperactive youth to use for his TV watching and his homework. EXCELLENT for focused work as well as giving a useful outlet for people who have to fidget & wiggle etc. Then yesterday I tried it for an hour or so. Today I feel some muscles I didn't know I had, and they apparently had gotten a light workout, just from my haphazard bouncing in front of the TV. I especially like that it elevates the ball to a normal chair height, keeps it in one spot, and easily allows the ball to be lifted out for other purposes ie exercise. The minimalist design is easy on the eyes, but it is surprisingly useful as well.

      LOVE this item. It is perfect for the office when I need to sit in something other than my chair for my lower back. It helps to keep my posture in the correct position and my core in. I would recommend this item in a heartbeat. I even let my manager use it when he hurt his back ... he laughed and then was like OMG I need one of these. :)

    • My favorite chair
      Verified Purchase

      I waited to review this chair so I could use it first. I'm glad I did, the first couple of days it was a little awkward and felt underinflated but after following the instructions I've found this to be my favorite chair!! It is very comfortable, sturdy and leaves my back feeling great! The only drawback is that as others have noted the wheel locks are too easily bumped and locked, planning to break them off though.

    • Too small ball
      Verified Purchase

      The idea is fabulous...but the ball is WAY too small it doesn't even hold the ball properly. It is falling thru the "stand hole" and the braces are obviously made for a much larger ball.

    • Ball is TINY!
      Verified Purchase

      Everything works well and goes together well, but not as pictured! Ball does not even touch the metal bars on the side, appears to be about 1/2 the size of what is in the photograph.

    • works as expected
      Verified Purchase

      the only problem i have with this is the lock levers on the wheels, i keep bumping into them so then i cannot move around as well, like turning around to get books out of my bookshelf or getting to the filing cabinet next to my desk. it does help me keep better posture at my desk.
