BalanceBall Chair can Strengthen Your Back While You Work

by Rob on April 10, 2008


The BalanceBall Chair is not exactly an “energy saving gadget,” but as someone who has suffered with a bad back for more than 20 years, I had to write about this product. The concept behind the chair is similar to a balance ball you may have seen in the gym. By maintaining your balance on the chair with correct posture, you strengthen your core muscles, which is critical for a healthy back. I should note that the chair is designed for people 5’0″ to 5’11” tall, which at 6’1″ rules me out. I’m hoping they come out with a version of the chair for us taller folks. On the bright side, I don’t exceed the chair’s weight limit: 300 lbs.

The chair is available from Gaiam for $100. Here’s to a healthy back.
