Alternative Seating

Alternative seating such as kneeling chairs, exercise balls, and bouncing chairs can be used to supplement standard office chairs. They encourage correct posture and "active sitting" as well as strengthening back muscles. However, they are usually too tiring for most people to use safely for an entire day. Please read our feature article about alternative seating!

FITNESS BALLS
Gaiam Total Body Balance Ball Kit (55cm, 65cm, or 75 cm diameter) $20

Please read our article on seating and active seating! The use of fitness balls is not a good idea for everyone and balls should not be used exclusively. Sitting on a fitness ball should be done only for short periods of time. It is important to purchase a ball that is the correct size for you, allowing your feet to rest flat on the floor and arms at the proper height for the working surface. Use of fitness balls for long periods of time can actually lead people to roll backwards and slump worse, so be aware of posture while sitting on the ball and change back to your regular chair when you notice your posture declining.

This kit includes a hand pump and a balance ball workout DVD. The 55 cm ball is purple, the 65 cm ball is green, and the 75 cm ball is blue as shown.
