modern product that both improves comfort as well as your overall physical health.
Customers love purchasing products from Isokinetics Inc. because they have one of the most competitive warranty-programs, by factory default, available on the market! An included, no-additional cost protection plan that is going to insure the stability and accountability of both this office chair as well as the medicine ball speaks numbers about the reliability and likely desirable reputation of Isokinetics Inc.
The weight capacity of this medicine, energize and exercise ball is somewhere between 200lb-215lbs, dependent upon condition of the medicine ball, height, chair locking mechanisms, and nature of usage on the chair—i.e. normal, fair, abusive, reckless, over-use, improper assembly, etc.
If you’re seeking a firm, durable, stylish, and personable medicine ball office-chair, then the Isokinetic brand selection is the way to go!
Why Isokinetics Inc. Office Chair?
The Isokinetics Inc. Office Chair is such a popular, well reputed brand and product because it utilizes the kinetic-energy, chiropractic knowledge, and health and fitness approach to design the most ergonomic, reliable, and practical (yoga) office chair for sitting all day at work, studies, or other activities at our office desk. Suffice to say, it may even be worth trying to use such a technology and chair for everyday activities as well, such as watching t.v. or perhaps sitting down at a table to play board-games with your family.
Is this the chair of choice for sitting down at the table for dinner? Not quite. Most customers, although very pleased, iterate that the functionality, fit, and comfort of this chair can be limited in terms of convenience or an “enjoyable” experience. Rather, it’s more understandably directed at discipline, or bettering your health via your posture, muscle growth, building, and core (abdominal) development.
With 7 various colors to choose from (white is a nice, rather new addition), a 52cm ball, and 60cm total radius or size, this is definitely an optimal product to purchase for getting the most out of your daily sitting experience or commitments for work or school, and restoring, balancing, and strengthening various lower-back muscles not otherwise worked. In fact, adequate posture achieved from this product will include less rolling of the shoulders, ‘hunching’ over, and common damage, soreness, or sprains of the neck and other vital muscles of your body in which are applied for everyday work or studies.
While some customers complain of discomfort with this product for the first hour or two, around up to a week of the ‘break in’ period, it’s critical to keep in mind a few points. Firstly, it’s not advised and this product actually specifically includes instructions indicating to not fill the ball past around 70% of air-capacity within the first week. This is a process, typically occurring over 2-3 days to allow proper ‘stretching’ of the ball-product.
The Isokinetics medicine-ball based therapeutic Yoga chair comes with two, free, very useful parts, both an included personal pump for the ball, and also a custom tape-measure to monitor and ensure your ball is either full to capacity, not too full, and not too light.
- Free Air Pump included makes it easy to adjust the balls pressure to suit multiple heights and weight
- Versatile – Holds up to 300 lbs. and works with both short and tall body types.
- This model may take a few days to get used to.
While this is a great, and effective product at doing what it’s meant to do, there have been infrequent, mild-based complaints regarding this office chair, as well as the included medicine ball. Some customers have reported that it’s not quite as comfortable, if at all, as they had anticipated prior to purchasing—even after the “break in period”. Others have noted that the supporting back piece does not even appear to serve a “real” purpose. Instead, it’s perhaps just meant as a (reminder) support mechanism to maintain proper posture, and some speculate the uncomfortable design of this part is intentional, as to motive customers to rely on their own hips, back, and neck’s proper posture through using the yoga (medicine) ball technology.
Also, for those that are used to arm-rests on their office chair, it may come as a surprise that this office chair does not really have that luxury or feature, nor a head or neck-rest.
In essence, if you seek an office chair that’s going to improve your posture, motivate you to properly keep your feet flat on the floor at all times, and strengthen your core muscles then this is definitely the way to go!
Customers love the Isokinetics Inc. Exercise Ball Chair because it’s simple to assemble, right out of the box, and should take under half an hour to fully assemble, and begin filling up. For convenience, comfort, and now even safety with locking front or rear wheels, this is definitely a unique, modern product that both improves comfort as well as your overall physical health—and hypothetically your future appearance!
