    Round therapy & exercise ball.

    Anti burst, latex free ball is available in 3 sizes - 45cm (yellow), 55cm (red) and 65cm (green).

    Therapy Balls are commonly used for:

    • Improving dynamic balance by sitting or lying on top of the ball
    • Activities to facilitate movement and general gross motor coordination
    • Exercises to increase core strength by working on the abdomen and back control
    • Sensory activities such as applying deep pressure with the ball to calm
    • Gradual introduction of increased weight bearing activities to improve muscle tone and strength
    • As a quick guide before buying a ball, measure the distance from the user’s armpit to the middle finger tip and match this measurement to the height of the ball (within 5cm).

    Choosing the correct size

    As a quick guide before buying a ball, measure the distance from the user’s armpit to the middle finger tip and match this measurement to the height of the ball (within 5cm). This is a good starting point and once you have purchased your ball and inflated it you can follow steps 1 to 3 below to ensure you have the correct ball size.

    We are happy to exchange your ball for a bigger or smaller size if necessary.

    Sizing

    We have laid out some basic guidelines below, however we recommend that you consult with an or occupational therapist or physio with regards to the sizing of your ideal ball.

    1. With the user straddling the ball on the centre saddle, their weight is evenly distributed and feet are flat on the ground.

    2. Ideally the knees should be level with the pelvis creating a 90-degree angle at both the hips and the knees with the user’s thighs parallel to the ground.

    3. The head, shoulder and pelvis of the user should be in a vertical line, with no leaning necessary to act as a counter balance to keep them on the ball. The ball can be inflated and deflated slightly to adjust the height - the ball should be firm enough to sit on and should not exceed the maximum recommended size. A fully inflated ball will compress less and will therefore be less stable (making some exercises harder as the ball will tend to roll more easily). Letting a little air out will make increase the rolling resistance giving it more stability.
