Care & Inflation Instructions
All balls, like car tyres, wear out with heavy use. If you use your ball in a commercial environment you may need to upgrade on a regular basis. mediBall® fitballs are not indestructible and may be weakened or damaged by sharp objects which may result in the ball deflating. Do not use a mediBall® that has been damaged. Always keep your activity area clear of sharp objects or corners, and check your ball regularly. Visit mediBall for advice on warning signs.
Use a damp cloth to remove dust, dirt and marks. Avoid using harsh cleaners.
Check the surface of your mediBall before use. Do not use your ball if the surface is damaged.
Keep the floor, exercise and work area clear of sharp objects and debris such as tacks, pins, glass and thorns.
Should be taken if using in temperatures greater than 32 degrees Celsius or less than 18 degrees Celsius as this may reduce ball strength.
Do NOT patch or repair burst or punctured balls. Keep away from naked flames and direct sunlight. Do not leave ball inflated in your car.
- Read the label on your ball to confirm the ball’s size e.g. 5cm
- Locate the air stopper (plug) and inflation adaptor
- Slowly inflate the ball to 5cm less than its maximum diameter e.g. 60cm for a 65cm ball
- Insert the air stopper and do not use your ball for 24 hours
- Complete the inflation of the ball to your correct sitting height and wait another 24 hours before use
NOTE: If you have purchased the correct ball size, you should never have to inflate greater than 95% of the maximum diameter stated on the label.
Inflation Height Guide
- Do not inflate when the temperature is greater than 32 degrees Celsius or less than 18 degrees Celsius.
- Do not over inflate the ball as this will void your warranty. Maximum diameter is on the label.
- If you have a pre-existing medical condition and/or are unsure of your balance, consult a qualified health practitioner prior to using your ball.
- Always supervise young children - they may remove and ingest the ball stopper.
- Inflate past maximum diameter.
- Use without first checking for any marks or defects.
- Use a damaged or marked ball.
- Attempt to repair a ball.
- Use in conjunction with sharp instruments.
- Leave an inflated ball in your car during daylight.
- Drive with a fully inflated ball in your car.
- Leave a ball near a heat source.
- Use to kick, bounce or hit.
