What are Ballkissen?
Ballkissen are air-filled seat cushions that provide an unstable base. They are usually made of sturdy material and have a semicircular shape. The inside of the cushion is filled with air, which gives it some flexibility and mobility.
Using Ballkissen puts the body in a slightly unstable position, activating muscles and joints to maintain balance. Whether used as a dynamic seat cushion or as a training tool, the ball cushion offers the opportunity to improve balance, flexibility and mobility with simple exercises, regardless of age and ability level.
What can Ballkissen be used for?
Ballkissen are often used as a support for traditional chairs or seating to promote an ergonomic and active sitting posture. They are suitable for use at home, in the office or in other areas where prolonged sitting is required. In addition, Ballkissen are also used in rehabilitation and physical therapy to improve body stability, flexibility and coordination.
By doing simple exercises and sitting on a ball seat cushion, various muscle groups, especially the back and abdominal muscles, can be strengthened. At the same time, the spine is relieved and blood circulation is promoted. Ball cushions thus offer a practical way to activate and train the body even while sitting.
What are the advantages of ball seat cushions?
Ballkissen offer a variety of benefits to those who use them. Here are some of the most important advantages:
• Active sitting posture: The unstable Ballkissen promotes an upright and active sitting posture. By sitting dynamically and
constantly adjusting to the unstable surface of the cushion, the muscles of the back, abdominal muscles and pelvic floor
are activated to maintain balance. This can help prevent back pain and tension.
• Improve balance and stability: Sitting or performing exercises on a Ballkissen requires constant adjustment of the body to
maintain balance. This helps improve balance and stability and can reduce the risk of falls, especially in the elderly.
• Strengthening of the musculature: The unstable surface of the Ballkissen challenges the muscles of the body. Sitting or
performing exercises on the Ballkissen strengthens the back and abdominal muscles in particular. Strong core muscles can
contribute to better posture, a stable and healthy back and improved spinal health.
• Promotes blood circulation and activation of the muscles: Sitting on a Ballkissen creates a slight instability that stimulates the
body to constantly make small movements. This stimulates blood circulation and activates the muscles, which can lead to
better oxygenation of the tissues and increased energy burning.
• Rehabilitation and physiotherapy: Ballkissen are often used in rehabilitation and physiotherapy. They offer a gentle way to
restore mobility, coordination and stability after injury or surgery. Ballkissen can also be helpful in the rehabilitation of joints,
especially the ankle.
By taking advantage of Ballkissen, people can keep their bodies fit and healthy, improve their posture, and increase their overall stability and mobility.
