My lower back is happy and the relief came instantly.
I have been sitting on a Yoga ball for a while now and I like this Ballo as a better alternative. It's pretty compact, light, and doesn't roll away. The only issue that I am find is after a while of sitting on it the rubber seat isn't really breathable. If there was a cover for the top that would be perfect.
I have been using the ballo stool for several months at my desk and I find my butt and hips get really tired and achy, even after just 20-30 min. It helps keep me sitting upright but I am using it less and less because of the achiness. It has not helped my back issues unfotunately. I am 5'9" but am mostly legs (33" inseam) and I find it tall enough for me, where most chairs max out at a comfortable height for me. It is fun to rock around on, at least.
I have found that Ballo helps me keep my core engaged while sitting and I love that it is conducive to movement and stretching while working at the computer.
My fidgety kids love using it for homework too.
I highly recommend it!
I have been using this for several months. I love it. And my back does also.
