Wellness Ball Active Sitting: Be more active from sitting

Wellness Ball Active Sitting is the product that allows you to make involuntary micro movements from sitting. It can be used when at work, at home or even on holiday.
Similar to a fitness ball but with added safety/hygiene benefits and training guides.
Benefits also include being able to sit quietly and with little exercises, strengthening the muscles of the Core.


What is Core?

The word Core, "Centre" or even NUCLEUS, identifies the whole central band of the human body that includes the complex coxo-lumb-pelvic. It represents a stable point of reaction for the rest of the body or more simply "its functional centre". The core is therefore an anatomical part of extreme importance for the same balance as the postural system and for the protection that can guarantee the entire spine.

Which muscles does Core include?

According to a broader view, Core includes all muscles between shoulders and pelvis and has a link function, i. e. linking the lower limbs with the upper limbs. The core includes not only the abdominal muscles (rect abdomen, oblique and transverse) but also the paraspinal muscles, lumbar square, pelvic floor muscles, buttocks and hip flexors.

Why it's important to train the Core

Any posture that the body assumes or movement that it carries out, interests and is influenced by the Core, whether it be movements of displacement of the entire body or secondary movements of the lower or upper limbs only. So, given that Core is a muscular fulcrum of the body, the point from where the movement starts, it is better to train it. Having a trained Core means in fact having the body strong, resistant and that moves with ease.

Is it gymnastic gear or dynamic sitting?

Sitting down may be tantamount to being sedentary. The term "sedentary" comes from the Latin sedentarius,"sitting", and indicates any kind of activity that takes place with very little movement.
What if a gymnastic training tool could also be used as an alternative seat to the traditional one? If we had a dynamic session capable of strengthening the muscles and improving balance, flexibility, coordination and posture?

Designed and patented by Technogym, Wellness Ball Active Sitting has an Italian soul. Its components and materials, first of all the Nylon Nautico hinge and cover, are made entirely by Italian craftsmen. As a demonstration of the care and attention typically made in Italy for quality work, this dynamic seat is made of high quality PVC. It does not contain phthalates and Latex that are potentially harmful to health.

Not only correct posture, but also muscle reinforcement

Using the Wellness Ball Active Sitting helps you to correct posture, contributing to the prevention of back problems. This session eliminates one of the main causes of lumbar pain: the maintenance of a static position for long hours.

With this fitness ball the back performs a series of micro movements able to improve the stabilization action of the spine performed by the abdominal and lumbar muscles.

Wellness Ball Active Sitting allows you to perform movements effortlessly and in a small space that help with stretching, muscle reinforcement and toning exercises.


A trainer within reach of QR at all times

On the terrace, in the park, in the garden, on the beach, at home? Each place becomes a suitable corner to strengthen your stabilizing muscles, following exercise routines with a virtual personal trainer. The handle on the Wellness Ball Active Sitting cover shows the QR code, which allows you to use your smartphone or tablet to access the training programs developed specifically for this product, so that your virtual trainer is always at hand.

Safe and suitable for everyone

The double density of the seat, which is weighed down in the lower part, allows greater stability and therefore comfort in every situation and does not dirty clothes, being always the densest part that is in contact with the ground.
To ensure greater safety, Wellness Ball Active Sitting is burst proof, antibacterial and flameproof.

Comfortable thanks to a series of functional details

Thanks to the multi-layered fabric that covers it, the exercise ball is antiperspirant and non-slip, like a pair of running shoes. This allows you to avoid sweating or slipping during use.
In addition, the material is machine washable at 30°, demonstrating the functionality of the product both before and after use.

It is also equipped with a handle that allows you to position and transport it effortlessly wherever you want.
