Research says that sedentary jobs are causing more diseases and body pains to people who constantly engage in a sedentary lifestyle. To reduce the risk of these activities, there must be small constant movements even while sitting. A balance ball could be the solution to create micro-movements while sitting, but how can you exercise and work at the same time?
Enter the Gaiam Classic Balance Ball Chair, an innovative and ergonomic office chair with a unique build. Compared to traditional office chairs, this balance ball chair ensures the proper alignment of the spine and helps relieve back pain due to sitting for very long periods of time.
People usually think that chairs are the primary issue when it comes to soreness and back pain, but what we often forget is that chairs are only half of the problem. Office desks also dictate the kind of posture a person will have throughout his working hours. Not every person has the same height but most if not all office desks have the same build, so it’s more likely that the person will be the one to adjust instead of the other way around.
A great solution to this problem is the Ergotron Workfit-S Dual With Work Surface. The height-adjustable column makes it easy for you to sit up straight with the right posture and still be able to work comfortably.
