    I've wondered about those. I'm sure it works fine as a chair, but it seems like having the ball resting on a base would cancel out a lot of the benefit of using the ball in place of a chair.

    This was happening to me, more so on one side, and I realized the problem was a lack of ankle mobility. A good amount of ankle dorsiflexion is required to walk with the feet pointed straight ahead,...
