What is a Powerball® ABS®?
It is an inflatable and burst proof gymnastic ball with a patented ABS Anti Burst System. The material called Crylon is odorless and very resilient (max load up to 500 kg/ ABS guarantee up to 90 kg). It is free of latex and contains no forbidden phthalates.
What is it good for?
For safety while sitting or performing exercises due to its ABS System which makes it guaranteed burst proof up to 90 kg of dynamic load (See Explanation below). Sitting on the Powerball ABS can help to avoid back pain. Abdominal and back muscles can be strengthened through safe, efficient, and dynamic back and stability exercises.
How does it work?
While sitting on the ball an upright posture is almost automatically assumed by the upper body. At the same time the pelvic floor-, abdominal and back muscles are inevitably being used for balancing. This permanent activity strengthens the muscles.
Explanation ABS and Burst Proof:
The ABS System is a special molecular composition of the ball that prevents it from bursting even when punctured. The molecular structure does not allow a hole to grow rapidly faster and rip the ball apart. In case it becomes punctured the ball looses air slowly and leaves enough time for its user to get off safely. There is a difference between the total load a ball can withstand, and the maximum load that is allowed for the ball to stay burst proof even when harmed by an object. The Powerball ABS can withstand a weight of 500 kg if undamaged and is guaranteed burst proof up to 90 kg of weight when punctured. This weight is considered to be dynamic. That means a person moving on the ball can weigh up to 90 kg and the ball will not burst if punctured.
*In case of discomfort before, during or after training the doctor must be consulted.
