This chair is very useful for stretching, preventing spine disorders, rehabilitation, correcting posture, reducing stiffness and improving circulation. Featuring a sturdy base designed with 4 rolling wheels, of which 2 can be locked into position, this is the perfect chair for in the home or at the office. Additionally, this chair acts as a shock absorber while you are seated in it and helps to ease your body into an ergonomic position for improved posture. You will appreciate the fact that you can practice stretching and strengthening key muscles without having to visit a gym. This chair offers numerous other benefits and many more when used with a balance ball. This purchase includes a black balance & stability ball as well as a pump to inflate the ball. Manufacture recommends sitting low as it is better for your back, but for people who prefer sitting higher for example sitting by a higher desk or just taller people, look out for manufactures height Extenders, or you could replace the ball with a bigger ball.

What I liked about this.
1) It does not have a seat back. That's one of the reasons for using a ball to begin with, is to not have something to slouch against.
2) Ball is off the ground and doesn't pick up dust. I often wear black slacks, and would hate to see what a ball does to my rear end after its been rolling around on the ground.
3) Lowest cost ball chair base on Amazon.
Why not 5/5 is for a few minor reasons.
1) All 4 casters have locks. Why? No normal desk/office chair have locking casters. I'm always accidentally hitting them in normal use.
2) Why not 5 casters? That's the norm these days with office chairs, for better stability.
3) The ball is kind of small. I needed to buy the caster extensions to raise the seating level.
4) The cost seems a bit high. I realize that this is a specialty product, but balls are going for around $10 and casters are even cheaper than that. The only other part is the molded plastic base.
5) The opening in the base is a bit large. If the ball isn't aired up until it is really firm, it tends to work its way into the opening making it sit even lower.
6) Comfort is okay. The rubber of the ball causes my pants to stick to it, thus pulling it in uncomfortable ways. I may buy a ball cover to see if this alleviates the issue.
With that said, I'd still buy it if I had to do it over again.
After reading many reviews, I selected this Sivan balance ball chair with no back. The company was very responsive to my request for a piece missing from the box with a broken seal. I suspect I got a chair that someone else returned, but the Sell Below Cost company offered the best price I found, were quickly and accurately responsive, and included an apology for the missing piece and an offer to help if there were any more problems. Love doing business with a company with that type of service and attitude. The original order was received quickly, and the replacement part followed quickly within a couple of days while the ball was sitting at room temp and getting the first fill of air. I love that all 4 wheels lock. At my age, it is critical to avoid falls, and I think 4 locks helps. I have not had any trouble with falling off or feeling like I might fall off. With the wheels locked, I am able to move around a little and reach where I need to reach with no extraordinary efforts. Initially, I did not put enough air in the ball. The low air was perfect for my height to the ground with 90 degree angles at the knees, but I felt too low for my office desk and felt none of the movement advantages others described. I added air from a compressor and used 65psi as my cutoff. The ball almost doubled in size! I like the way it sits much better, but it is too high and I use a stool or I exercise calves while not using a stool. I choose to use the ball higher because I feel the "balancing" effect is there with the extra air, but not with the lower air. The whole assembled chair is also light enough for me to pick it up and put it outdoors on my deck, my favorite place to work! My only complaint is that my 'bottom' gets sore, kind of like riding a new bicycle seat but more spread out. The soreness is only after I have been sitting awhile, and does not continue after I get up and move around. I am hoping the soreness goes away completely as I use the chair more often and for longer periods. Plus, the pain forces me to get up and take a break, which is a huge plus for circulation. I tend to forget the lengthy time stretch I am sitting, so forced breaks are a plus. I am taking the advice of others and attempting to gradually extend time on the ball. I have had no more back pain than I have in regular office chairs. I recommend this Sivan balance ball and chair base for economy, quality, and the exercise-while-sitting purposes for which it is intended. I doubt I will ever do other exercises on it, because of the chance of falling. I hope I can benefit from the balancing movements others have described while using it as a desk-work chair.
You have to allow the material to stretch and soften. This material is made to be flexible and stretch with your body weight. As for the locks on the wheels, they are annoying, but I do understand their purpose. I used some twisty ties to tie them up until I wish to use them. So far they have not come down.
All in all this is a great chair, especially if you like to wiggle on a balance ball instead of being stationary. I find myself moving around from side to side and bouncing every so slightly the whole time I am sitting on it, except while I am typing.
If you are they fidgeting type of person, this chair will make you very happy.
I did buy the cover by Gaiam that is velvety and it is a little large for this ball, but I was able to make adjustments to the cover and it looks great on the chair.
