  • Fill the beach ball with a small amount of air (when you’re in the cabin, the beach ball will inflate from the changing pressure).
  • Place the ball in the small of your back, and adjust the amount of air until it feels comfortable.
  • About every thirty minutes, move the ball either up or down an inch or two.
