The Science

Stability ball chairs are not just another trendy fad. The health benefits of sitting on exercise balls are backed by solid science.

Numerous independent studies have been conducted by medical doctors, chiropractors, occupational therapists and ergonomists supporting these claims.

Research has shown that “active sitting” significantly reduces spinal compression which over time can lead to disc degeneration. The dynamic movement of sitting on an unstable ball also normalizes spinal fluid diffusion and provides proper nourishment to the cartilage cells that help to keep the discs elastic and strong.

The Evolution Chair’s ergonomic design successfully passed rigorous testing by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association to achieve product recognition status and we are actively endorsed and promoted by a wide range of medical professionals. The all-inclusive Evolution Chair Kit includes risers to adjust the base height (essential for proper ergonomic positioning), the smooth rolling base provides safety, stability, and effortless maneuverability, and the back-less design triggers core engagement which is necessary for health and postural benefits.  The Evolution Chair’s versatile design has become immensely popular in multiple   environments including schools, home offices, dental offices, aesthetic centers, call centers, and air traffic control centers.

Active sitting also leads to increased brain stimulation, alertness and learning ability. Studies done in classrooms revealed marked improvement in students’ ability to focus, take notes, and engage in class discussions while sitting on stability ball chairs.

 

The Science of Ergonomics

Height adjustment illustrationOur company focuses on fulfilling the ergonomic goals of health, safety and productivity. Proper ergonomic design is necessary to prevent repetitive strain injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term disability.

Posture Perfect Solutions Ltd. knows the importance of providing a "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments and therefore we designed a height adjustable ball chair. Height adjustability is vital for proper posture because your knees need to be lower than your hips while sitting. Risers are included with the Evolution Chair to raise the height of the base to accommodate anyone between 5’ – 6’5”. The ball can also be inflated from 50 cm – 60 cm for your ideal ergonomic position and comfort level.
