Getting Backfit Whilst Sitting? The Dynair Cushion

Getting Backfit Whilst Sitting? The Dynair Cushion

When you come for treatment, you may have noticed a strange blue cushion sitting on or near the chair and wondered what it is. in this article we will be exploring this, and why so many of our patients use this product.

The Dynair® Ballcushion

What is a Dynair® Ballcushion?

It is a space saving alternative to an exercise ball. The Dynair Ballcushion is an inflated and dynamic therapy and training tool made of patented Ruton. It is used as an unstable surface for back and fitness training.

What is it good for?

For a strong and healthy back and a stable core. The back is very effectively relieved and becomes incidentally trained. It can help to avoid pain in the intervertebral discs and strengthen the spinal muscles. The upright posture can be optimized. In addition the following affects can be observed during a sensorimotoric training (interaction between nervous system and muscles): improvement of the nervous system, concentration and coordination, and the stability of joints.

How does it work?

The air charge in combination with the patented form and the special, high quality material make a dynamic sitting and training possible. Place the Dynair Ballcushion on a seat. While sitting on the Ballcushion minimal movements are necessary to counterbalance the instable surface. These movements are performed by the back muscles. So without spending time for any additional exercises, the back muscles can easily be trained at the office or at home.

The SitFit offers the same benefits as sitting on a Swiss Ball with greater convenience. Swiss Balls can be inconvenient when standing up, as the ball can roll away, or simply get in the way. In some offices they are considered dangerous and therefore a liability risk. But put it on any chair and within a few minutes you feel it working. While you sit, the SitFit strengthens and improves your core, promotes proper posture, and supports good back health – whether in your office, at your computer at home, or in front of the TV.

The Dynair Ballcushion can bear a weight of at least 200kg. It features a needle valve for regulating the air charge. The Ballcushion can therefore be inflated or deflated for various levels of comfort and difficulty. Additional exercises can be performed, standing on this tool to improve balance (especially the coordination between brain and muscles), joints stabilization and to strengthen and tone core muscles. The material is odourless and free of latex and forbidden phthalates. It is produced in Germany by TOGU-Gebr. Obermaier oHG – the specialist for inflatable training and therapy equipment. The manufacturer offers a 30 year warranty for the product.

Dynair cushions can be purchased from the clinic, so if you haven’t already got one, we will be happy to let you try one out!
