What is the life expectancy of a TheraBand Exercise Ball?
We cannot suggest a specific shelf life for the TheraBand Exercise Ball as each person/facility uses their Exercise Balls at a different frequency. We recommend that you carefully inspect the exterior of the ball for possible damage (abrasion, scuffing, roundness, air leakage) before each use. Should any damage be evident, discontinue use and replace it with a new ball. When not in use, store TheraBand Exercise Balls in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Do not store near a painted wall or varnished surface.

Can TheraBand Exercise Balls be used as an office chair?
TheraBand Exercise Balls are designed for therapeutic and exercise applications. Currently, there is no scientific evidence to either support or contraindicate the use of exercise balls as an office chair. However, there is anecdotal evidence of its efficacy with school children. Some evidence suggests frequent breaks from sitting on the ball, as would be standard with any prolonged sitting activity. The risks of using an exercise ball as a replacement for a chair or desk should be the same as those posed with regular use of the ball, and users are cautioned to follow the appropriate safety warnings included with each ball.
