Testamonials to the Evolution Exercise Ball Chair
"What can I say, it is great. When I got my first chair about 1 1/2 years ago, my staff laughed and they took bets to see how long it would take me to roll off the chair. Well, 1 1/2 years later, not only have I not fallen off the chair, I also have not had any backaches which were quite frequent before. Also to top it off, my staff that was laughing at me, now also sits on the balls and love it as much as I do. When patients come in, they always ask about the chairs and a lot of them ask to sit in it. When they do, they not only want to get one for themselves, but they also want to buy one for a friend or loved one. " Dr. Charlie Foy, DDS
"I'm looking forward to getting back on my evolution chair, at 6'7" and 250 pounds it's difficult to find a chair that is comfortable and ergonomically correct. I would recommend the Evolution Chair to anyone with back and/or height issues." Todd Bosworth
"Within a few years of graduating I realized that the physical demands of dentistry were exceptionally taxing on my body. I started to develop pain and stiffness in my neck, shoulders, and lower back. When I saw the Evolution Chair, I realized that it would force me to use my core strength as it demanded an upright posture and would prevent me from slouching. The Evolution Chair absorbs the compression of my strained and contorted spine and relieves the stress to my back. I have been using the Evolution Chair in my clinic for almost four years now, and I find that it is one of the most comfortable dental chairs I have ever used. I cannot work without it, and my back feels great - thanks for extending my career!" Chris Bryant, DDS
"I have been using my Evolution chair for almost a year. My midsection, including my lower back, feels continuing strengthened. Plus, it's a fun distraction when clients see it for the first time. It's a welcomed bonus when I can begin an appointment with relaxed, smiling clients." K. Cristine A. Hodsdon RDH, BS, Educational Consultant
"While many people spend time in the gym doing strengthening exercises, most are not mindful of the tremendous long-term health benefits associated with active sitting and the accompanying improvement in posture and core strength. I'm convinced that the Evolution Chair&trade is a good seating choice and I will recommend it to my patients." Dr. M. R. Wilkinson, MBBCh, MBA, CMA, Dip Sports Med. Sports Medicine Physician and Medical Director Medical Rehabilitation program at Back in Motion, British Columbia
"Having practiced clinical dental hygiene for the past thirteen years I have seen numerous cases of colleagues who have suffered back injuries due to poor posture. Many dental hygienists spend much of their day sitting on operator stools without effective support for their backs. I have used the Evolution Chair while treating my clients and found it to be comfortable and effective in maintaining my posture. I also use it at home when working at my desk and find it to be so comfortable that I forget I am sitting on a ball! Based on my own personal use and research, the Evolution Chair has proven to be an effective strategy for maintaining my posture and overall musculoskeletal health. I most certainly recommend this chair as a preventive measure against back injuries." Perline Rae, R.D.H, Leturer
"The whole office thinks I'm crazy, so far! But, after months of sitting on the ball, I am more on-the-ball than ever. Working at my desk is no longer tiring and I feel better at the end of a shift. I am able to hold myself up straighter and I feel I can walk taller and smarter. Surprisingly I have no desire to go back to a conventional chair, as I was first afraid I would. Balancing came easy and quickly and now, I never even think about it. I am enjoying the experience and the results." Don Warren
"I started my MBA degree this year and injured my back as a result of having to sit for better than 12 hours per day in the classroom and to study! Its kind of embarrassing and surprising to me to have a "sitting injury" but I am a runner and going from being very active to a somewhat sedentary existence "did me in". After injuring my back this September, I went to see a chiropractor for the first time in my life and she recommended the ball chair to me. Her office staff sit on them and I bought one from her immediately. I haul this ball chair with me to class and I do all my homework on it as well. However, at work, I still had to use a traditional office chair and my back, although much better, could not tolerate it. I was bringing my ball chair from home into work as much as possible but it was getting to be a pain hauling my ball chair back and forth to the office as well as to school. Switching to a ball chair, and your Evolution chair in particular, is the best thing I have ever done. I still sit for hours on end with work and school, but as long as I sit on the evolution chair, I am just fine. I have returned to running (after 9 weeks off due to the original injury) and I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone!" Kelly Phipps, Northern Health
"I had a hip replacement in February of 2005. My rehabilitation included much core strength development. I bought the Evolution Chair, after seeing an ad for it in the paper, hoping that it would continue to help me focus on my core strength while at work in my office. I love the chair, find it very comfortable and find that it forces me to be aware of my posture. The wheels are a convenience that allow me to swivel from my computer to a work table. I have now bought a second chair for my home and my whole family uses it at the computer." Peter Humphries, Principal, Boundary Elementary School
" Ever since we started to use evolution chairs, all of us in the clinic noticed big improvement in posture and back strength. At the end of the day we were less tired and more energetic. Our clinical staff can not imagine reverting back to regular chairs. Our front desk staff use Evolution Chairs as well, and likewise would not swap back to regular chairs." Dr. Tom Moonen, Orthodontist, North Vancouver, British Columbia
Dr. Moonen's office is one of the original practices to incorporate the Evolution Chair in dentistry; they have exclusively utilized the Evolution Chair in their clinical and administrative environments for over two years.
" Sometimes I feel like a living, breathing ad for the Evolution Chair. I have been using my chair for a year now at work and it's seems that I'm always telling someone how much I like it. I sit in front of a computer at work and have had a history of body aches and pains due to my bad posture. Believe me it's much harder to slouch on the Evolution Chair, and that's a good thing. My posture has improved dramatically and I rarely complain of a sore back any more. I miss my chair when I am off work so I have just bought one for home, too." Korey Johnson, Dental Office Manager
" We bought our first Evolution Chair in February, 2005. I was suffering from pain in my right hip and saw the receptionist at my physio's office using one. It was an instant hit with all the members of our family who find it the most comfortable chair for computer work. We have since purchased a second chair and both are in constant use as both my wife and I have home offices. " Mark Pezarro, Principal, Earthvoice Strategies Inc. - Sustainability makes dollars and sense.
" I am an assistant for a Chiropractor. He is always bothering me about my posture. I got an Evolution chair this summer last, and wouldn't give it up for the world. My back used to ache all day and I slouched something awful....my whole family does. Now not only do I sit up straight when I'm on the Evolution Chair but my posture is perfect all the time and everyone comments on it too! Also, I broke my tailbone last September and the Evolution chair was the only chair that was comfortable for me. I cant wait to order another one for my computer at home!" Sarah
" Dentistry is an occupation that is known to be very hard on the lower back. When I saw the the Evolution Chair, I realized that it would force me to use my inner core strength and abs as opposed to my lower back when using it as a dental chair. I have been using the Evolution Chair in my office for a little over a year now and I find that it is one of the most comfortable dental chairs I have ever used. I cannot work without it. I even take it with me from operatory to operatory to work on patients. It's a great conversation piece as well!" Dr. Bruno Paliani
