Art of Balance: The Body Sport Inflatable Balance Disc
The Body Sport Inflatable Blue Balance Disc can be used for balance training and strengthening of lower extremities. Additionally, it can serve as a dynamic cushion to help activate important muscle groups. This disc is shaped and moves like a fitness ball when it is used on any seat. It consists of two different sides; one tactile and the other smooth and can be easily inflated to a 2” thickness with a conventional pump. On the other hand, it can also be deflated to a 1” thickness.
· 13.5-inch diameter.
· Supports up to 500 pounds of pressure.
The Body Sport Balance Disc can be used standing, sitting, or lying down. The knobbed surface on one side and the ribbed surface on the other provide easy gripping on any surface. This product is an alternative to inflatable fitness balls and is ideal for people with back pain for use in therapy, at home, or at the office. In addition to that, care providers can buy them in bulk in order to resell them to their patients. Some Amazon reviewers say that “this is a very good pad that can be inflated or deflated to your comfort level. It can go with you anywhere. It gives you the feel of a ball without the bulkiness of a Big Ball;” and also that “I prefer this balance disc over some of the more popular ones. It has thicker plastic, seems better constructed. It's great to take this with you when you need to perform computer/desk work at other people's places. You can inflate/deflate it for your comfort when dealing with other folk's office chairs.”
