Thanks for your helpful exercise suggestions!

I started this thread because it seems generally unhealthy to sit typing
all day from a fixed position. I'm working on some of the well-known
mitigations: switching occasionally between a sitting and standing
position for typing, walking around while on the phone, and remembering
to get up and stretch frequently. All the same, I'm interested in ball
chairs and seating discs because I understand that they require one's
core to be in frequent motion, which sounds on the face of it like a
good idea.

I haven't used either of those ball chairs, but I did use a ball as a
chair for about two years.

Like many things that are hyped, it did some good, but not as much as
the hype would suggest.

And you have to wear jeans all the time...

For somebody who has a lower-back problem, for which they want to try a
ball-ish chair...
