For companies with employees who work too much and don’t get to the gym enough—and let’s face it, that’s most workplaces these days—you’ll want to consider including the Gaiam Balance Ball Chair in your next incentive merchandise reward program.

The Gaiam Balance Ball Chair uses a patented design that combines comfort and ergonomic back support in order to help improve spinal alignment and reduce nerve compression, whether used at home or in the office. And the chair’s anti-burst balance ball—which is free of latex and the six most harmful phthalates—can also be used as an exercise aid to strength one’s core muscles.

In addition to the removable ball, the chair comes with an adjustable support bar, and easy glide, lockable, castor wheels.

Additional specifications:

  • Chair dimensions: 20½" W x 31½" H x 25" D; 13 lbs.
  • The height of the back of the chair is 2' tall.
  • The base measures 20" wide from one side of the wheels to the other.
  • When the exercise ball is inflated and on the chair, seat height is about 25".
  • The ball alone will measure between 52 cm and 55 cm depending on the amount of air.
  • The base of the chair is 6' off the ground.
  • Designed for people 5'0" to 5'11" tall.
  • Not designed to fit people 6' in height or taller, or 4'11" or shorter.
  • Weight limit: 300 lbs.

The Gaiam Balance Ball Chair is available from Rymax Marketing Services, product #09-1112. It comes in black and is priced at $99.98. For more information, or to order, call (800) 379-8073, write [email protected], or visit
