Active Sitting Seat Cushions

The Gaiam Balance Disc Can be Used Both On and Off a Chair

— December 23, 2019 — Lifestyle
The Gaiam Balance Disc is a passive piece of workout equipment that will enable those who spend most of their schedule in an office or seated with a way to stay active throughout the day. The cushion features a half-domed design that works to decrease the stability of the sitter and force them to perform small movements in order to maintain their balance throughout the day. This will come as welcome news to those who are looking for a way to stave off the effects of sitting for too long to keep their body active and ready for activity at a moment's notice.

The Gaiam Balance Disc is reported to help increase core and lower back strength, and is also great for hard seating solutions to add a touch of cushion-like comfort.
