Stability ball chairs are not just another trendy fad. The health benefits of sitting on exercise balls are backed by solid science.
Numerous independent studies have been conducted by medical doctors, chiropractors, occupational therapists and ergonomists supporting these claims.
Research has shown that “active sitting” significantly reduces spinal compression which over time can lead to disc degeneration. The dynamic movement of sitting on an unstable ball also normalizes spinal fluid diffusion and provides proper nourishment to the cartilage cells that help to keep the discs elastic and strong.
The Evolution Chair’s ergonomic design successfully passed rigorous testing by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association to achieve product recognition status and we are actively endorsed and promoted by a wide range of medical professionals. The all-inclusive Evolution Chair Kit includes risers to adjust the base height (essential for proper ergonomic positioning), the smooth rolling base provides safety, stability, and effortless maneuverability, and the back-less design triggers core engagement which is necessary for health and postural benefits. The Evolution Chair’s versatile design has become immensely popular in multiple environments including schools, home offices, dental offices, aesthetic centers, call centers, and air traffic control centers.
Active sitting also leads to increased brain stimulation, alertness and learning ability. Studies done in classrooms revealed marked improvement in students’ ability to focus, take notes, and engage in class discussions while sitting on stability ball chairs.
The Science of Ergonomics
Our company focuses on fulfilling the ergonomic goals of health, safety and productivity. Proper ergonomic design is necessary to prevent repetitive strain injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term disability.
Posture Perfect Solutions Ltd. knows the importance of providing a "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments and therefore we designed a height adjustable ball chair. Height adjustability is vital for proper posture because your knees need to be lower than your hips while sitting. Risers are included with the Evolution Chair to raise the height of the base to accommodate anyone between 5’ – 6’5”. The ball can also be inflated from 50 cm – 60 cm for your ideal ergonomic position and comfort level.
1Remove the Evolution Chair base and ball from box and check for shipping damage. (It is normal for balls to have slight creases or fold marks when first inflated.) Allow ball to reach room temperature before inflating.
2Screw inflator tip into tip of pump. Insert inflator tip into hole in ball. Alternatively, the ball can be inflated at a facility that has an air compressor such as a gas station, bicycle store, dental office, etc. Inflate ball to the recommended height and firmness. (See below.)
3After correct inflation is achieved, insert plug into hole until head is flush with the surface of the ball. Slight leakage may occur over time. Re-inflate as necessary.
4The Evolution stability ball is made of a very durable anti-burst material that varies in size by adjusting the level of inflation. This allows people of different heights and weights, to attain their ideal ergonomic seated position and personal comfort level.
You will want to fill the ball to a level that provides you with a comfortable yet supportive cushion. The amount of inflation will depend on your height and body weight. Ideally, if you are sitting on the Evolution Chair with your feet flat on the floor, your hips and knees should form an angle slightly greater than 90 degrees with your hips slightly higher than knees.
To inflate with the provided pump we recommend filling the stability ball approximately 80% on the first day. Let it sit for 24 hours to stretch before filling to 100% or so that you can dent the ball about two inches (5cm) if you stick your finger in the ball.
If your are 5 feet tall, you would not inflate the ball as much as someone who is 5 feet 11 inches. Likewise, a 250 lb individual would inflate the ball more than a 150 lb individual of equal height. Regardless of your height or weight combination, you should not exceed the maximum diameter of the ball. If your ball is underinflated, the ball will not be as firm, but you will still benefit from the Evolution Chair.
We recommend using an air compressor for the initial inflation. See below for inflation using provided hand pump.
Inflate the ball until it is firm and measures from 20" — 21" high (52cm — 54cm) when measured perpendicular from the floor to the top of the ball on the first day. Let the ball sit and rest for 24 hours to allow the material time to stretch and relax, the following day gradually release air until your personal desired firmness level and correct ergonomic height is achieved.
