For those of you interested in improving your posture while sitting, the Isokinetics Balance Exercise Ball Chair is your key to better spine and improved back health. Unlike a normal chair, this yoga ball chair will train you to sit upright and prevent you from slouching or sitting with bad posture. Besides working on your balance, it can also strengthen your core and help improve your flexibility, coordination, and motor skills.
Unlike Isokinetics Fitness Ball Chair, this chair is not adjustable–you cannot adjust the wheel height or change the position of the back support. Nevertheless, this is a great chair for eliminating stiff back, especially if you have to sit at your desk all day long.

Bottom line is that while it is not perfect, this chair is priced really well, considering it has so many useful features. Nevertheless, if you want an adjustable balance ball chair, we suggest that you get the Fitness Ball Chair model because it supports 4 wheel height positions and 4 back support positions.
