Don't give up when your order seems lost in the internet. I had to contact the company 10 days after placing my order because I hadn't heard a peep. Once the Ballo arrived it was exactly what I wanted. The materials are resilient and it's comfortable enough to use as a desk chair for long periods. I generally switch between a standard chair and the Ballo to give my core a break, but my wife is Ballo all the way.
I had several years of chronic back issues, stemming from poor posture. I never had the time to work out and strengthen my core so I decided to change my seating. Ballo was there to help and I haven't felt this strong since college! I am glad I made the decision to do something about my pathetic posture and get stronger by using it every day. If you want a good workout, get a Ballo!
This is a great product! We have 5 around our office and people use them very regularly. They are comfortable and the supplied air pumps allow for easy adjustment of the "firmness".
This product provides the user ability to utilize their core musculature for best posture. This product is superior to the Ball chairs, especially since there is no loss of air.
I sold my $1700 Herman Miller chair and bought a Ballo to replace it!! Best thing I ever did. It is so comfortable and promotes good posture and body movement to keep me active at my desk. No more back or leg pain from sitting at my desk. It does need air to be added on occasion to maintain proper inflation, but that is easy maintenance that I can live with. Highly recommended.
I use my ballo alternately with my regular task chair and my posture has really improved. Plus it's a great second seat for guests who want to sit close to my desk.
This may look silly, but after a few months of use. I no longer have back pain issues and enjoy being at my desk in my chair.
