Posture Balance balance seat - For better ergonomics and a strong posture
Posture Balance is a balance seat that encourages low-intensity training that strengthens the torso and posture while you do other things. It is perfect for use for a while in the home office or to activate you in the office landscape. On the balance seat, you improve your mobility, balance, strength and posture. An opportunity to sit stronger - Deskercise! Note that a good posture deepens breathing, which improves your concentration and productivity.
Ergonomically active sitting
- Posture Balance has a similar function as a pilates ball. The advantages of the balance seat are that you can lean towards an outer position on the side to extend your back. It is also more unstable, which contributes to more torso training during use and that it takes up less space than a Pilates ball.
- Place the balance seat on any stool, armchair, chair or sofa. Posture Balance is not dependent on the surface layer. Just make sure that the chair does not move and be prepared that the balance seat is very unstable.
- Make sure to sit in the middle of the seat so you get optimal training and ergonomic sitting.
How do I train my posture on Posture Balance?
The balance seat is for strengthening the torso muscles. When you sit on the seat, you need to have a tension in the torso to sit firmly. On the balance seat, it feels natural with a slow and strengthening movement exercise by tilting the seat back and forth and sideways, which both works with muscles and provides mobility. For additional challenge, you can also choose to lift one leg at a time, bent or straight, and try to maintain balance. A strong torso helps you to unconsciously maintain a good posture.
Use the balance seat
Posture Balance tilts the pelvis, which makes you sit on the seat legs, which helps the spine to get its natural S-curvature. You also get an angle in the hip that is more than 90 degrees which increases the circulation in the hip.
A few times a day, sit on the Posture Balance and do exercises to strengthen the torso and lower back:
- Lift the right leg - try to sit completely stable
- Lift left leg - try to sit completely stable
- Swing right to left, front and back to increase hip mobility
- Stretch the side by tilting the seat and extending the arm. Increase mobility and blood circulation by continuously moving the seat.
- Super difficult: Lift both legs at the same time!

Q: What is Authority to Leave?
A: When a sender or receiver gives 'authority to leave' (ATL), they’re giving the delivery driver permission to leave the parcel at the delivery address without a signature when the parcel is delivered (as long as it’s safe to do so). All orders are automatically assigned authority to leave unless instructed otherwise.
Q: Why should I provide Authority to Leave?
This is the best way to allow for contactless delivery, which is safe for yourself and the delivery person too.
The other benefit of delivering orders with authority to leave is that the parcel will almost always be delivered on the first attempt. This means you won’t have to organise a redelivery and pay the re-delivery fee or collect the order from a local collection point.

A: A Tail lift is a mechanical device permanently fitted to the back of a delivery truck. It is used to lift heavy items on and off the truck when a forklift is not available.
Please note: Sometimes in the event that a tail lift truck is not available, the freight carrier will hand unload the heavy items off the truck. Hand unload by the freight carrier is covered by the tail lift surcharge if the tail lift service is not available.

- To prevent paying re-delivery fees, extra delivery charges etc. please ensure you provide us with special delivery instructions.
Q: What if items are missing from my order?
Short delivery: If your order is over 22kg and under 250kg it is possible that the items have been sent via a courier in loose boxes. Occasionally the courier may deliver the items in different batches. E.G If you order ten items and you receive only eight, then the delivery is short (of two items) = short delivery. The courier will then deliver the remaining items in the next 1-3 business days.
Out of stock items: Occasionally, some items may be temporarily out of stock and will be delivered at a later date as a back order, however, you will usually be notified of this prior to despatch.
If you believe you are missing any boxes or items after carefully checking and opening everything you have received, (multiple items may be combined in one box), please check your invoice and courier delivery dockets to confirm.
Any claims for missing items must be made within 7 days of receiving your order (no exceptions) so that we can investigate whether it was a warehouse despatch error or items have been temporarily lost in transit. The sooner we are notified, the better chance we have of resolving missing items.
