Office Fitness Ball Chair Fixed Backrest Model : So far, so good.

Not a bad product, just overpriced. . Simple, easy to assemble, delivered quickly and free with amazonprime and might be helpful for people having some difficulties with their backs. It does what it says on the tin, but only just. It is neither badly nor well built, neither comfortable nor uncomfortable. I paid over £75 for this item and would say that this product is seriously over priced and not particularly good value for money at this price. I would have expected a build quality or materials of somewhat higher standard for this price range. I might have been a lot more enthusiastic about what is basically swiss ball in a plastic frame, if the item had come in under £50.

After the initial fun poking by my colleagues all is well in the my world of ball chair. I us this all day every working day in the office. I’d had a bit of back trouble and this seems to have done the trick obviously strengthening my core as well as preventing me from slouching badly. Easy to put together and the pump which was included (don’t order another one) works no problem.

This chair is being used in a class for students with autism and severe learning difficulties. It is very popular and we will get some more very soon.

Better than using my swiss ball as a chair. I’m reasonably familiar with the benefits of using yoga / swiss balls as a replacement for conventional seating but this is a great improvement on my swiss ball that i had been using for some months. The problem i had with the swiss ball was that although it had definitely helped some of my lower back issues i was not able to freely move around the desk area. Having wheels makes all the difference and the chair seems to glide pretty easily, even on tiled carpets. Also, it seems less conspicuous then my old ball which seemed to draw comments on a near daily basis. So far, i’m pretty impressed.

Office fitness great to deal with. I purchased the office fitness exercise ball chair with back rest from amazon and as usual it arrived really quickly. However the chair was too low for me so i contacted office fitness directly where they really helped me sort out my problem with the chair. The chair is great for anyone who does pilates or yoga and wants better posture at their desk at home or at work. I do not have a bad back or neck problems but know that this chair will work on my ‘core’ stability. You need to build up to using this chair all day and don’t try to cross your legs or you will fall offall in all a great chair from a great company with excellent customer service.

This is the second ball chair i have bought for my son. This one seems to be a better design than the previous one. It is too soon to give a full review. Hence the 4 stars, depending on how it performs over the coming months i may award another star in the future.

  1. Best purhcase i have ever made. Was a bit sceptical before purchasing despite reading the reviews but for anyone who spends a lot of time at a desk this is an absolute must have. I have two slipped discs in my neck and back problems which are often aggravated by typing. However i have had no neck or back pain whatsoever since using this chair, even after being at my desk for 8 solid hours yesterdayworth every penny.

    Bought my ‘ball-chair’ a couple of years ago. It is small and neat – unlike the swiss balls with little udder-like legs – and easily stays in one place or moves as a piece – unlike the swiss ball which has resulted in some very unladylike rolls under the table and other unexpected, sudden moves. The lumber support is brilliant – don’t often use it but when i do find it very comfy. The casters are free-moving and the ball incredibly tough. I did buy mine for about two-thirds the price currently listed but would seriously consider buying another if i had to – although (touch wood) i won’t because i rely on this chair to keep my back supple and core a little active when spending a long time infront of the pc.
