This is a good, sturdy ball for using as a chair. The material is a little "sticky"which keeps it from moving around like a regular exercise ball. It's also adjustable in size (depending on how much you inflate it). Customer service by Thneed was excellent. When we received the package, we didn't realized that instructions for inflating the ball had arrived by email the previous day, so we didn't know to remove the plug before using the pump to inflate it. We emailed customer service and they responded right away after we contacted them, and re-sent the instructions with apologies, even though it was OUR fault! They even gave us a credit, which was unnecessary. This is a great product for the price.
After watching a Great Courses video on staying fit as you age one suggestion was to use this as a desk/computer chair and I have been doing so now for nearly a month. It works great. And it lets me swivel around to loosen hips and shoulders while sitting some time. The pump that comes with it is ok but it will take a lot of pumping to get this fully inflated so I used the pump I use for tire inflation and even that took a while. But following instructions (wetting the plug) I have not found that it deflated at all after first inflated it. Does tend to roll but am able to lodge just under the lip of desk to keep in place. It is far more comfortable to use than I expected although it does take a little getting used to vs a chair. I did a lot of research of reviews before deciding on this one. Some of those had arms, some a back and some on casters but in the end decided that this was actually better for my use and so far that has proved to be the case.
The ball is much smaller then I expected. I'm 5'3" and when I sit on this ball at my desk, I can hardly reach the key board. It puts me at eye level with the bottom of my computer screen. I think it would be a 5 star item for someone taller. I now use it with my other yoga balls as a piece of work out equipment
