Sitting balls and beanbags
Seat balls and seat cushions are ergonomic aids used to improve sitting posture and increase comfort while sitting.
Seat balls are large inflatable balls that can be used as an alternative to traditional chairs. They provide an unstable seating surface that results in activating the muscles of the back and abdomen to maintain balance. Using a seat ball can help improve posture, strengthen core muscles and make sitting more dynamic.
Seat cushions are soft pads used on traditional chairs or benches. They provide additional support and comfort while sitting. Seat cushions can be made of a variety of materials, such as foam, gel or air-filled chambers, and are often ergonomically shaped to improve sitting posture and relieve pressure on the lower back and tailbone.
Benefits of seat balls and seat cushions:
Improved sitting posture: seat balls and seat cushions promote a more upright posture by supporting sitting with activated muscles. This can help reduce back pain and tension caused by poor posture.
Muscle strengthening: the unstable seat of a sit ball activates and strengthens the muscles of the trunk, abdominal muscles and back. This can contribute to better body stability and balance.
Better circulation: using seat cushions can reduce pressure on certain areas of the body, which can lead to better circulation. This can be especially helpful for people who sit at a desk for long periods of time or who struggle with circulation issues.
Comfort and Relief: Seat cushions provide additional padding and pressure relief, which increases sitting comfort. This can be especially beneficial if you sit for long periods of time or sit on hard surfaces.
