For optimal performance, it may be necessary to re-inflate your new Balance Ball once or twice after the initial inflation. Once your chair is assembled and the Balance Ball is inflated, re-check the ball size the next day. If necessary, add additional air and check once more the following day. Your new Balance Ball may need a day or two to "stretch" to its final size (which should then fit perfectly in the base).

If you need other replacement parts for your Balance Ball Chair, please email customer service at customerservice@gaiam.com Ships via Fed Ex Ground. Express Delivery not available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by too hard on your backside I have degenerative disc disease and sit at a desk all day with bad pain. A woman at my office sits on this chair and swears by it so I decided to order one. At first I loved it. I thought it was a fun idea but after several hours, my butt started to really ache and so did the back of my upper legs. I decided to stick with it one more day to be sure it was the ball giving me the pain and after the next day, I knew that instead of it helping, it was causing me additional pain. I also noticed that I was slouching more. I am sure it will help some, but for me, no. I am about 95 pounds and five feet tall. I don't have a lot of butt padding so maybe that is the issue. The other thing that concerned me is that it had a rubbery smell and I worried that when it got hot in the office it would be torture sitting on a hot ball. The best thing about the experience was the customer service dept at Gaiam-they made the return easy and effortless so although I didn't keep the ball, it was easy to return. April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by New office furniture! We needed something more productive to our bodies than just the regular office chair. We invested in the ball chair and love it!  April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this! I use it everyday at work as my desk chair.  I'm on the shorter end of the scale so I had to let some air out so I could touch the floor properly, but it's awesome.  I feel my core engaging with every move and I'm learning to sit straighter.  Bonus, my tail bone also appreciates it.  I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Works okay but could use a longer zipper The cover works well on the ball but I was dismayed to discover the zipper isn't long enough to put on the ball while it is inflated. This means that any time I want to wash it I have to deflate the ball and then re-inflate it. Not a deal breaker but it definitely seems like an oversight. April 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth Trying I used this chair as my office chair and was very happy with it. It's just that you cannot use it over 2-3 year period, you have to switch. I had a purple one and it lasted me for over a couple of years and then I gave that to a friend as a gift. Good support, good balance and and can be used  for leg lifts and exercises.  February 2, 2014
