What is Active Sitting?

There’s so much to say about the benefits of Active Sitting that it has its own page!

Can I sit on ErgoErgo all day in the office?

No problem. The more you sit on it, the more you work your body, and the stronger your core muscles will be. And you´ll improve your sense of balance. But you´ll also benefit if you use ErgoErgo for 15 minutes, an hour each day or just every now and then.

How tall should I be to use it?

ErgoErgo compresses slightly when you sit on it to the height of a standard chair, which makes it perfect for a standard desk height. Because you can adjust it by tilting or moving back and forth, it’s suitable for people from about 5′ – 6’4″ tall.

Why is there no back rest?

ErgoErgo allows the body to move freely in any direction, and because there is no back rest, you engage your core and back muscles to build strength and flexibility.

How much weight does it support? 

~250 pounds. 

Can my kids sit on ErgoErgo?

Depends how big they are. When you sit on ErgoErgo, both feet should be planted on the ground. Smaller children will have to wait a few months until we come out with KidsErgo. (And then see if you can get them off it!).

How much does it cost?

ErgoErgo costs $100, including shipping in the continental US.

Within 15 days of purchase, email us to request a call tag return shipping label for the product in original box. Once we receive it, we’ll issue a refund with the cost of return shipping deducted.

Can ErgoErgo be recycled?

We hope you´ll use and enjoy your ErgoErgo for a long time. So, when the time comes, yes, ErgoErgo can be recycled.

 

Is ErgoErgo made in the US?

We’re proud to say yes!

Is the height adjustable?

ErgoErgo is designed for sitting at a standard desk or table height, so in most cases you won’t want to adjust the height. However, for high altitudes you may want to let out a bit of air.  In some cases you may want to add air to make ErgoErgo higher.

To let air out

You will need a sewing needle, sports ball inflation needle, and petroleum jelly. 

1. Wet the sewing needle with soapy water.

2. Insert needle once and remove. (Skip Step2 if procedure has already been done to add air).

3. Wet sports ball inflation needle with soapy water.

4. Insert sports ball inflation needle by itself (Not attached to pump).  Allow air to vent out.  Light pressure may need to be applied to chair.

5. When enough air has been let out, remove inflation needle and pack the hole with petroleum jelly and wipe off any excess.
