i just got one and i have to say it's definitely fabulous vs an office chair. it forces you to maintain your balance and really aligns the back wonderfully. well worth the money. my back feels so much better. try it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.

I used one for awhile at my desk at home, but it was much too hard to stay in good balance when trying to edit pictures for hours at a time. Definately a great idea for just cruising the net though, and it does make you more conscious about your posture! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

That was way too funny! I've lost my balance a few times like that myself.

I already use a balance ball when I'm at my desk and I never get the back strain that I get sitting at a normal chair. This <a href="http://www.gaiam.com/product/exercise-ball-ballanceball-chair.do" target="_blank">balance ball chair</a> is on my wish list... a little help with the balance would be a good thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> I just need to pick a color.

At my last job I traded my chair for a big fitness ball and it was great for my posture and abs.<br>
but the job still sucked!

I found this to be quite interesting:<br><br><a href="http://health.yahoo.net/experts/menshealth/most-dangerous-thing-youll-do-all-day" target="_blank">http://health.yahoo.net/experts/mens...ull-do-all-day</a><br><br>
I have re-arranged by workspace to allow for standing most of the day. I have been doing it now, for about three weeks...I love it!<br>
I just raised my computer at home to do the same...I am standing right now while entertaining myself on VB. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I don't do anything all day but sit, but heart attack death doesn't scare me that much, so i'm fine with that, better than suffering with cancer.

Anyway!<br><br>
I used to do this before I got a laptop and cruise the nets in bed...<br><br><br>
I should also mention, I've become much more active too, >.>
