An interesting Christmas Present
The sales office received an interesting Christmas present last year…
Can you guess from the photo? It’s a seating ball, from Novus!
Having recently released this new product line in the Novus MoreSpace system, we got to work in pumping it up ready for action with our seating ball trials.
And so far, it’s proved to be a popular addition to the sales office.
The idea is that it is used for short periods, intermixed throughout the day with your usual ergonomic chair. Our testers found that 1 hourly stints were best, before switching back to your usual chair. Perhaps this may be increased over time as our muscles become more familiar with this new way of sitting, we will wait and see!
It requires the user to actively balance on the ball, with the idea being to form a correct posture and alleviate any back or core strain.
It is thought to help burn those extra calories which may have crept on over the Christmas festivities. As you continue to balance on the ball by engaging your core muscles, you are burning calories as well as sculpting those abs and obliques.
The final positive benefit involves the action of changing from ball to chair throughout the day. You are changing your position, standing up to take a seat and therefore mitigating any possible health concerns associated with sitting for a long period of time.
Novus provides the ball in two sizes, a 65cm and a 70cm version. Both have a brown leather finish, a carry handle and internal weight reinforcement to stop the ball rolling away.
