The Sit 'n' Gym Ball Chair has little feet to prevent it from rolling away when used as a sitting ball chair.
The chair encourages dynamic sitting and promotes proper body alignment for better posture.
Another great thing about the Sit n´ Gym is you get twice the value - you can use it as a seat and as a regular exercise ball if you turn the little feet to the side.
The benefits of ball therapy are widely acknowledged for children and adults with a range of abilities. Balls are used for balance and co-ordination training, strengthening, gross motor and proprioceptive activities. Balls are commonly used for:
- To improve 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
- Latex free
Available in 3 sizes - 45cm, 55cm and 65cm. 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).

Height is the biggest factor to take into consideration when choosing a therapy ball, however the users weight should also be taken into account. Someone with a weight-to-height ratio higher than average will cause the ball to compress more when they sit on the ball – meaning the 90 degree angle at hip and knee may not be achievable. These users should consider purchasing the next size up.
Adjusting the amount of air in the ball will affect the size of the ball and the compression when the user sits on it. Inflate or deflate the ball slightly to achieve the required 90 degree angle at hip and knee. It should be noted that too little air in the ball can stabilise it too much making balancing exercises too easy and less effective; too much air pressure could make these exercises too difficult as the ball will roll more.
The recommended maximum user weight for balls is 20 stone or 130kg
