HISTORY OF THE STRESS BALL
The invention of stress balls is traced back to Ancient China, roughly 26-220AD. The used motion and intent of relaxation were the same but used were nuts as opposed to today’s balls. These relaxation techniques were particularly implemented for military during combat training.
During the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 AD), hand exercises using balls made of stone and metal became commonplace. However, it wasn’t until the time of the Ming Dynasty, which began in 1368 AD, that the items we know today as Baoding balls started getting mass produced.
Alex Carswell realised what a good idea it would be to have a product that could relieve stress without causing property damage. Carswell released his invention, the Stress ball, in 1988. Unlike most stress relievers we see today, the original Stress ball contained electronic gadgetry that caused it to make the sound of glass breaking upon impact. Like its modern-day descendants, however, it was made of polyurethane foam.
