Original ABS® safety made in Germany - The airbag for your gym ball
What is a Powerball® Premium ABS®?
It is an inflatable and burst proof gymnastic ball made of anti-burst material - made in Germany. The material called Crylon is odorless and very resilient (load up to 1000 kg/ anti-burst guarantee up to 170 kg). It is free of latex and contains no forbidden phthalates.
What is it good for?
This physio ball offers safety while sitting or performing exercises due to its anti-burst material which makes it guaranteed burst proof up to a 170 kg of dynamic load (See Explanation below). Sitting on the Powerball ABS can help to avoid back pain through an upright posture and counterbalancing moves of the body. Abdominal and back muscles can be strengthened through safe, efficient, and dynamic back and stability exercises.
How does it work?
While sitting on the ball an upright posture is assumed almost automatically by the upper body. At the same time the pelvic floor-, abdominal and back muscles are inevitably being used to counterbalance the body. This permanent activity strengthens the muscles.
Explanation anti-burst material and burst proof
The anti-burst material is a special molecular composition of the surface that prevents the ball from bursting even when damaged or penetrated by a sharp object. The molecular structure does not allow a whole to grow rapidly faster and rip the ball apart. In case of any damage the ball looses air slowly and leaves enough time for its user to get off safely. There is a difference between the total load a ball can withstand when not damaged, and the maximum load that is allowed for the ball to stay burst proof even when harmed by an object. The Powerball Premium ABS can withstand 1000 kg undamaged and is guaranteed burst proof up to 170 kg when it becomes damaged. This weight is considered being dynamic, that means a person sitting and moving on the ball can weigh up to 170 kg.
Expert opinion of Oliver Schmidtlein, physiotherapist and owner of OSPHYSIO:
"Training top athletes require maximal effect and guaranteed safety. TOGU's Powerball® ABS® Series offers both thanks to its unique material composition. No matter if Training coordination, stabilityor training with heavy loads - TOGU Powerball ABS are the safest and best fitness balls for me."
"Many people think one ball is like the other. We are seldom wasting any thoughts on what could happen when a ball is damaged and bursts while we are still sitting or exercising on it. At any rate I want to be sure not to face an unexpected burst and therefore I chose the Powerball Premium ABS. As soon as you pump it up, you notice its robust surface which leaves a strong impression. The ball changes slightly its shape after I sat on it, which is caused by the safety material. With the ball comes an exercise chart. By the way, I use this ball not only for exercises but also for sitting at the office in order to prevent back pain. Compared to an office chair, this ball feels perfectly sporty. This not only helps to reduce my stress level at work but in the end it also improves my concentratio.
