I'm a physical therapist and use these discs with patients. I prefer the ones, like the J/Fit and the Harbinger, that have a relatively flat top and bottom, with a wide vertical rim joining the two... not the "flying saucer" style where a concave top and bottom meet at a narrower rim.

The photo here shows a disc with a wide, flat rim with the name brand printed on it. The actual disc that arrived is more of the "flying saucer" shape with a seam around the perimeter - no flat surface to print on. If I'd known this, I would have foregone the admittedly good price and paid a few dollars more for a disc that looks like the picture. These are OK, but I don't like them as well for sitting balance and body awareness training.

I own and have sat on a Fitball (large exercise ball) at home for many years now as I surf the 'net at my desk and have fun on Amazon. At work we just went paperless and ...it hurts from the hours of sitting since we no longer have a reason to jump up and sprint to the fax or print things. I hear everyone complaining, but no one has yet done anything but try to remember to get up when the pain is too much.

I bought this disc for comfort to sit on. The disc gives your chair the feel of an exercise ball. It makes me move to keep balance instead of sitting rigidly, and that movement takes the pressure off back muscles and keeps circulation going and abdominal muscles working happily. This disc has downloadable exercises that I have not tried, and pictures on the box of exercise poses you might try (no exercise instruction on the box). It also is fun to try to balance on. I played a game where one person tries to balance and when they are, I then pretended to be swaying on a ship in front of the balancer which makes it much harder for the balancer to keep up their balance. Its fun to balance on all by yourself too and works your muscles. The spikey side faces up and is what you stand on and its comfortable without shoes. The smooth side is placed down onto the floor.

The box says Made in China. It comes with a pump but its already inflated, and I liked the way it was inflated so did not have to use the pump at all.

update: I have been using this at work for about 2 weeks now and it helps. The best way to use it for my liking is to sit so that my tail bone hangs off the edge. The inflated disc though feels like a harder surface than a cushioned chair. It keeps me shifting around so now hopefully I won't develop a bed sore from all this sitting...

I wear a size 7 and I can't comfortably get both of my feet on this disc. It's too small. It needs more air but I couldn't figure that out. Barefoot - which is how I do my pilates, balance work, it hurts your feet. I don't recommend this product, in case you hadn't guessed. It's pretty.

I bought this product to be used as a seat cushion for my 4 year old son with Sensory Processing Disorder. This product is identical to others marketed specifically as a cushion in many Sensory Integration catalogues. We have been using it in class during "carpet time" and have seen a significant decrease in fidgeting and movement. The product provides great sensory input and is very durable and well constructed. Also included with purchase was a pump so you can adjust the disc to your preference. I highly recommend this product to others. It is priced under half the cost of identical products. I am so thankful to find such a great product at an affordable price!

This balance disc has helped me tremendously when I have to sit for long periods at my desk. It helps me keep a good posture all day and is very hard to slouch on it. I used to be in a lot of pain when I would sit at my desk for more than a couple of hours. Since I started sitting on the disc, I no longer get those pains in my hip, sciatic nerve or back. A side bonus is it strengthens your core!

Product was delivered quickly. Bought this as a replacement for the one I gave to my son who was having some ankle problems. I've had problems with my knees and ankles for years. it always seemed that every few months i would twist an ankle just walking along. Since I've started using the balance disc a couple of years ago, I haven't twisted an ankle nor have I had as much pain in my knees.

I purchased a set of the disks. The quality was as expected, however after a few uses the valve started to leak air. I only used indoors on carpeting and weigh less than 170 pounds. I have tried to refill it but as soon as I stand on it the air comes out the valve. By the way the pump which is provided is useless.

I know this isn't meant as a kid's toy, but I bought this with the advise of my doctor that it may get my children to stay sitting at the dinner table longer. There are many other products out there for sensory-integration therapy or ADHD therapy similar to this that allow children to wiggle and bounce their jitters out when they are supposed to be sitting doing homework or eating dinner. My youngest particularly had a problem staying at the table during meals so I got him this. He loves sitting on it and it also makes a nice booster for him. Not only that, but both of my boys (now 3 and 6) LOVE playing with the disc altogether. It helps them harness their energy in a positive direction and they've discovered some imaginative play using it as well. I would definitely purchase again. Also, the price is great!
