Rated 1 out of 5 by pyates interesting but not quite
It seems to be ridiculously low, I am 5'8" and find it very low to use at a standard 29" high desk. I could find no reference of larger balls being available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ThatCopChick ZERO QUALITY
I don't know where to begin. Obviously, Gaiam uses a 3rd party manufacturer for ball chairs and they slap a sticker on the ball and box and ship it out. Don't get me wrong, I don't really have a problem with that, what I do have a problem with is the COMPLETE lack of quality in what I received.
First, I ordered a pump for $6, because my mistake, it comes with one! While I would normally not mind the accidental waste of $6, I do mind that one of them clearly had been assembled and used...and worse yet, to ensure it was included with my shipment (rather then ship it with the separate leg extenders????), someone LITERALLY TORE A HOLE IN THE BOX to shove the extra pump in!!!
My God, and if you think that's awful, that was just the beginning. Long story short, it took me over an hour to put the chair together because NONE OF THE HOLES WERE FULLY DRILLED OUT! Yes, apparently this happens, Google confirmed I wasn't crazy, but that the holes for the back to be screwed in, and that goofy bar that sits in front of the ball were 100% blocked and not drilled out. Now, I do own a drill, and luckily, the appropriate bit sizes, but this is ridiculous that I had to machine my own parts to assemble the chair!
If this is the standard of quality to which Gaiam attaches theirr name, I promise I won't ever be purchasing another item. I want everyone to know exactly the kind of inferior product that is sold for luxury brand prices! Unacceptable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bhreon Feels great on my back. Metal rod broke already.
I truly like the way this products incourages good posture. My lower back feels stronger and my back pains have dimenished. I gave this product 2 stars because I've only had this chair for a few weeks and the metal rod/brace on the front of the chair has broken off. What are my options for replacement?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Heidi90734883 Not for me
Chair did not work for me. Wheels do not roll easily and I kept hitting my ankles on the base when trying to move. I'm having much better success sitting on a regular balance ball.
