It is a space saving alternative to an exercise ball which is specially devised for beginners and elderly persons. It features a needle valve for regulating the air charge. The Dynair® Cardo® Ballkissen® can bear a weight of max. 500kg.The material is odorless and free of latex and forbidden phthalates. The manufacturer offers a 30 year warranty for the product.
What is it good for?
For a strong and healthy back and a stable core. The back is very effectively relieved and becomes incidentally trained. It can help to avoid pain in the intervertebral discs and strengthen the spinal muscles. The upright posture can be optimized. In addition the following affects can be observed during a sensorimotoric training (interaction between nervous system and muscles): improvement of the nervous system, concentration and coordination, and the stability of joints. The spikey massage knobs stimulate sensory receptors and can improve blood circulation.
How does it work?
The air charge in combination with the square shape and the special, high quality material a safe dynamic sitting and training possible especially for beginners and elderly persons . Place the Dynair Ball Cushion Cardo on a seat. While sitting on the Ballcushion minimal movements are necessary to counterbalance the instable surface. These movements are performed by the back muscles. So without spending time for any additional exercises, the back muscles can easily be trained at the office or at home. The square shape offers more stability for every movement on the cushion. Additional exercises can be performed, standing on this tool to improve balance (especially the coordination between brain and muscles), joints stabilization and to strengthen and tone core muscles. The Dynair Ball Cushion Cardo can be inflated or deflated for various levels of comfort and difficulty.
Expert opinion of Dr. med. Gerrit Sommer, German National Snowboard Team Physician – Medical Specialist for general medicine / sports medicine / chiropractics / naturopathic medicine:
“The Dynair® Ballkissen® can prevent backpain by allowing for agile sitting through its functional shape and dynamic adaption. Due to dynamic sitting the musculature stabilizing the trunk is being activated, the balance trained and a static malposition avoided during sitting.”
The Dynair® Cardo® is prefect because it is saving a lot of space compared to a ball. It makes me feel safer as it allows only for gentle movements due to its rectangular shape. Still the air inside requires some counterbalancing which strenghtens my back muscles. You get used to it quickly and just after a short while you realize: There is something happening with my body! I sit more upright, I compensate permanently in order to keep balance and I feel my back muscles working. As my back pain gradually disappears, my impression of doing something good for my health is reaffirmed.
