Save your back, buy a vluv
Do you want to pay more attention to your posture while sitting and save your back? The Vluv Leiv is a comfortable seat ball, on which you sit up naturallystraight . You can use this ball as a seat in your living room or at your desk during the elimination of your e-mails, but you can also use it for your balance exercises. Because of the sleek, contemporary design this seat ball looks nice too.
The Vluv Leiv consists of a PVC inner ball with a polyester cover. This cover limits the expansion of the ball, so that the comfort is optimal. A ring on the underside prevents the ball from rolling away easily. In addition, the seat ball is equipped with a handle , so you can easily carry it with one hand.
Which size Vluv seatball do I need?
The Vluv sitting balls are available in two sizes. This way everyone can comfortably sitin the correct position between 1.55 meters and 1.95 meters. To determine the right size for you, there are three things to keep in mind:
- Your length
- The position of your pelvis relative to your knees
- Your workplace / the place where you will use the sitting ball
1. Determine the size on the basis of length
In most cases you can use the following rule of thumb when choosing a suitable sitting ball. Especially if you are going to use it in a free space, such as the living room, or if you want to do exercises with it, you can assume this.
- Body length: 155 - 175 centimeters = sitting ball of 65 centimeters
- Body length: 175 - 195 centimeters = sitting ball of 75 centimeters
2. The position of your pelvis in relation to your knees
The seat height is good if your pelvis is slightly higher than your knees. Your thighs are therefore slightly angled downwards. This way your body can sit upright better. To determine the correct seat height at home, you can do the following: sit down on a low chair and wear the same shoes that you would normally wear when sitting on the seat ball. Now place books (or other flat objects) under your seat for as long, until your thighs are slanted downwards. Make sure you are upright in a safe and comfortable way.
Are you okay? Then you can now measure the seat height. If it is between 50 and 60 centimeters, it is best to opt for a 65 centimeter seat ball. With a seat height between 60 and 65 centimeters, you can go better for the 75 centimeter model.
3. The use of the sitting ball: your workplace
If you are going to use the Vluv sitting ball at your desk behind your desk, it is important that you adjust your desk to the right height. The height of the desk must be able to be set between 68 and 82 centimeters. Look for the correct seat height at line 2 above. In addition, it is important that your forearms can easily put on your desktop while you are sitting upright.
Can your desk be set between 68 and 72 centimeters high? Then you can best choose the 65 centimeter seat ball, even if you are taller than 1.75 meters. Then your legs will fit under the table. Obviously the position of your pelvis with respect to your knees is not perfect. The best thing is of course to go for a table that can be adjusted at the right height.
