Exercise balls are used to improve balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and even just
for fun. Balls are used by pediatric and NDT therapists as an aid for vestibular movement
and equilibrium therapy, by fitness professionals as an aid for stretching and strength programs,
as seats, and even by pregnant women in birthing classes. The Cando® balls have
a non-slip PVC vinyl surface that is ribbed for extra security. The balls may be "under" inflated
to give a soft, mushy feel or fully inflated for a firm, bouncy feel. See sizing chart
(page 46) to choose proper size ball. Balls can support up to 300 pounds (136kg) and
come in a polybag or a box designed for retail display.
