first imagethe 'wellness ball' offers workers improved posture and muscle activation while sitting at their desk
how and where we work is changing.
the traditional office space is undergoing a transformation whereby our job-related activities are now longer necessarily conducted using
the conventional means of a desk or chair, or even from within the walls of a specific building. in the fast-paced times in which we live today,
we see the working environment extending into areas of transition such as airplanes, hotel rooms across the globe, bus or train during our daily commute…
and with this, we are all on a quest of functioning more efficiently and effectively - trying to find solutions in which to manage our professional life
with our personal lifestyle.
the 'wellness ball' by technogym is one such approach in which working out can be done while you work from your desk.
the alternative to office chairs brings forth the continued exercise of 'active sitting', improving wellness while on the job.
sitting for long periods of time can cause low-back problems due to sustained flexion of the back, and prolonged load on spine tissue.
available in two sizes (55cm diameter for people up to 170 cm; and a 65cm one for people over 170cm), it is aimed at correcting posture
and muscle activation, still in the the form of sitting, however requiring individuals to constantly change their position which is more beneficial
to overall health of one's vertebrae.
this is done via the inflated internal rubber sphere which requires the user to constantly adjust their posture in tandem with slight movements of the ball.
the base is heavier, giving it more stability so that it does not freely roll around. the protective cover - easily removable via a zipper which runs around
the radius of the ball - is made from a breathable, antibacterial material which can be machine washed at 30 degrees celsius, guaranteeing comfort and hygiene.
for added security, the bottom of the case is coated with an anti-slip fabric.
