Ledraplastic equipment is of the highest quality and with due care should last for years.
Any ball, whether of Burst Resistant Quality or not, is vulnerable to puncture. The ball is at risk if used outside. Do not use on concrete floors, brick or gravel surfaces. Keep away from sharp objects, edges and naked flames.
Fitballs should not be kicked or used as a football.
Check user’s clothing for sharp edges such as name badges, belt, watch or shoe buckles.
Check the floor for sharp objects such as drawing pins or staples, particularly if using the ball as office seating or in Tradeshow areas. In gyms, beware of metal-edged equipment.
Ledraplastic balls are independently University tested with a tolerance of 300 kg.
Balls are guaranteed against manufacturing defects only and this does not extend to balls that have been over-inflated or damaged in use.
Check Fitballs regularly and remove from service any that have scratches or other surface damage.
Keep out of direct sun light.
Fitballs are unable to be patched or repaired.

Our Fitballs are seriously safe!
The below picture is an Independent Safety Testing done by the Centre for advanced Structural Engineering of Sydney in Australia, which actually shows the fitball holding 9000kg without bursting.
Start of test – no load
Further test – 500kg
Q. Are the Fitball™ products safe for children?
A. Yes our products are all made out of PVC; they are extremely durable and can be used indoors and out. No latex is used which is an advantage over other products.
All of our products have been designed with safety in mind. All products are phthalate, latex and NRL (Natural Rubber Latex) free PVC products. The advantage of latex free is that it prevents problems associated with hypersensitivity allergic reactions. NRL is toxic to children if the surface comes in contact with their mouth. All toys are NRL free, which means children can lick the product, as many kids will and there will be no adverse effects as there is with other PVC products.
Q. How do I choose the right size Fitball™ for me?
A. There are two ways to determine the correct size Fitball for your height.
By measuring from the tip of the shoulder to the fingertips or by using your standing height.
30cm Ball, Standing Height: <135cm (<4’4)
45cm Ball, Standing Height: 135-154cm (4’4 to 5’0)
55cm Ball, Standing Height: 155-169cm (5’1 to 5’5), Arm Length: 56-65cm
65cm Ball, Standing Height: 170-184cm (5’6 to 6′0), Arm Length: 66-80cm
75cm Ball, Standing Height: 185-204cm (6’1 to 6’7), Arm Length: 81-90cm
If seated on the fitball™, your hips should be slightly higher than knees.
When prone over the ball, hands and feet should be able to be placed firmly on the ground.
Please note these sizes are the maximum diameter. If you prefer a smaller/softer ball, you can keep it inflated 2cm below the maximum size.
Q. How do I properly inflate my Fitball™?
A. INFLATION – two-stage inflation is recommended.
When inflating the ball for the first time, inflate to several centimetres LESS than the maximum. Leave the ball overnight in a warm room, to allow the ball to expand and then top up to desired size. The fitball is latex free and can take a few top ups to get to the desired diameter.
Please ensure you use the correct pump to inflate the ball. The description of each ball will confirm whether this should be the Faster Blaster or Flexi Needle Hand Pump. If you use the incorrect pump, it may not generate enough pressure to inflate the ball to its maximum diameter.
Fitballs may be inflated by using a hand pump or compressor. Take care when using a compressor. Compressors can be more effective when the ball is not expanding to the desired size. (Max atm 0.1-PSI 0.5) The ball is NOT inflated to a pressure but according to the maximum diameter. A bicycle pump is not suitable.
Inflate Fitballs at room temperature (20deg C) rather than at extremes of heat or cold.
Each ball has a maximum diameter printed on it. DO NOT EXCEED THIS DIAMETER this will result in the ball voiding warranty.
Circumference: (measure around the fattest part of the ball) 55 cm ball = 173 cm 65 cm balls = 204 cm 75 cm balls = 235 cm
The ball has a simple stopper (plug) supplied. You are unlikely to need the small valve supplied with some balls. When the ball is fully inflated press the stopper firmly into the air hole.
Balls will “give” a little depending on the type of use. It might need topping up periodically, depending on use.
