    tried it and i really did not like it. i just bought a new chair made out of 'bungy' cords or that is what it looks like. my legs and back don't ever hurt now i think it just gives great support. got it at the container store but i have seen it other places

    I was a "preacher's kid" growing up and at one church we had a man who would get there right before services started and stand there and blow, blow, blow his donut up! Then....at the final "Amen", he would pull the plug....p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p! Of course, being kids! LOL! I could write a book, hee, hee!

It is made by Danskin and it works just as well. It is a balance disk and it helps strengthen your core muscles. My sides and abs were sore for the first week that I used it but I have no problems now. It is sold in the exercise equipment area. The best part is it cost about $13-14!!!
    Thanks. $14 sounds a lot better than $25.

    To me, they look like they would be uncomfortable.

    Actually, I've been looking for one of these FOR my car. When I have lots of errands to run, the getting in and out of the car just wears me out. I think I'll give this style a try for my car and my sewing chair.

    I bought that purple cushion (The Gypsy SitUpon) recently. And I love it. I am a tall person with lower back problems. This helps with both. After getting used to it, my back (and butt) don't hurt after a sewing spell anymore.
    The best part is the added height. I use my machine on my dining room table, and by adding the height of the cushion, I'm finally at the right ergonomic height for using my machine. That might be part of the resolving back issue too.
    I have found that I put a cloth over the nubbies though, as they tend to feel pokey after a while. Maybe I should just use that as a sign to get up and stretch ??
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    I think I'll look around for a bargain one, or at least try it somewhere. Thank you, all.

    Very cool. I am getting one of these for my mom for Mother's Day. She has back trouble and getting in and out of a car is tough. Hope this will help her. Thanks for sharing.
