AOK MediBall® Pro 75cm

AOK Health designed their Swiss Balls for the needs of the health and fitness industry.

A MediBall® will hold its shape (therefore supporting your core muscles) and not just squash and flatten under your body weight like a cushion or a pillow does.

AOK Swiss Balls are not modified toy balls that squash under load like a cushion.

The ball retains its spherical form particularly during exercise, and because the sphere has a small base of support, to maintain a balanced sitting or lying position the body must focus its energies on the core stabilising muscles.

Using an AOK Swiss ball is a sure-fire way of developing strength, balance and coordination.

All body shapes and types will feel the benefits of being fully-supported when bending, lying, sitting, stretching…

Lower back pain

Lower back pain has been described as the “flu” of the musculo-skeletal system.

It causes more time-off-work than any other condition.

Using a mediBall® may help alleviate symptoms and promote stabilisation.

Evidence shows that lower back stabilisation training can positively affect lower back pain.

Use of the mediBall Pro® encourages active sitting positions, offering a highly functional opportunity to reinforce active stabilisation.

AOK Swiss Balls have been designed to meet the following criteria:

  • Safety – the anti-burst feature reduces injury risk associated with exploding balls
  • Strong resistance to stretching and general wear & tear
  • Resist deformation under load
  • Suitable for sitting, rehabilitation, exercising, stretching and weight training
  • Non-toxic

These sizes are not definitive but only a guide. Larger/bulkier individuals may need a larger size ball than shown purely for comfort and not biomechanics. Using the ball for weight lifting is also better with a larger ball than normal. There is only 10-20% loss of efficiency if using a larger ball size for exercise. You will rarely use a Swiss ball at its maximum inflated diameter. Best results are at 90-95% inflation.

**Please Note: All balls are tested for correct inflation before being shipped. Any balls that have been opened or inflated cannot be refunded or exchanged.

Caring for your mediBall®

CLEAN: Using a damp cloth.

INSPECT: The balls surface before use and DO NOT use if damaged.

ENSURE: The floor and surroundings are clear of sharp objects.

CARE: Should be taken if using in temperatures greater then 32ºC or less than 18ºC.

LOADING: While static load rating is 1000kg your ball is rated Anti-burst to 500kg – If using weights do not exceed your body weight as load – body weight and equipment should not exceed 350kg. Care should always be taken when using dynamic exercises.

WARNING: Do not patch/repair burst/ punctures balls. Keep away from naked flames and direst sunlight. Do not leave an inflated mediball in your car.

Caution: All balls, like car tyres, wear out with heavy use – we have balls 5 years old and still performing well. If you use your ball in a commercial environment you may need to upgrade on a regular basis. Our Swiss balls are not indestructible and may be weakened or damaged by sharp objects which may result in the ball deflating. Do not use a Swiss ball that has been damaged. Always keep your activity area clear of sharp objects or corners and check your ball regularly.
