Rated 5 out of 5 by drno when you are stuck sitting - this is the chair!
I have had a ball chair for the last 3 years at work and it is great! I am am outdoorsy person and hate to sit for hours on end but when I have to I will only use this chair. It forces you to sit up straight and really improves your balance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lala444 Not sure
I bought this to use at my desk, but it is way too low. As for exercise, I don't know, because I did not use it that way. If it were higher, I would have really liked to use it as my office chair. So I can't say it's bad, it just did not fit my use. It was very easy to put together though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BLPH overall, a great chair
This chair is great for sitting for an hour or two. It would not be comfortable for many people if used for longer periods. The chair is also good for select exercises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KKWSF This chair meets my needs at work.
I've had the chair for a month and it works well in my office setting. I stand much of the day but still need a chair for many office tasks. I find myself sitting more erect, and I'm able to scoot around as needed. I'm 5'9" and the chair height is perfect for me. The chair is made of a durable plastic and the wheels roll freely on my chair mat. Great chair!

Rated 3 out of 5 by writedesigner Not a miracle cure -- yet.
I am a graphic designer and writer, and sit at the computer all day. I have tried every kind of ergonomic chair and using a large balance ball without the chair. I almost always have leg, back and neck pain. I had great hopes for the Balance Ball Chair. After receiving it (and spending nearly an hour with a smart friend putting it together -- looks like it should be easy, doesn't it?) it was much too low for a standard 29" desk. Then I ordered the extenders. Note: unless you have a very low tabletop, order the extenders the first time. I've sat in this chair for two days now and my back and neck really hurt, but at least the pressure is off my thighs. I'm going to keep trying, but right now I'm a bit bummed out.
