The various exercises performed on the balance board can effectively target core strength and stability. You can help increase the muscle tone in your calves and ankles. By improving proprioception through balancing exercises wobble boards can help to protect the body from injury as well as act as an aid when recovering from injury.
By standing on a wobble board as an alternate to sitting at a desk (see picture) you can look to roughly triple the rate at which you burn calories. For more prolonged periods of standing ( hours at a time as opposed to minutes with the wobble board) the Office Fitness Balance Dome may be a more practical alternative.
As with all Office Fitness products comes with a year's warranty
