Agra pathologist Pramod Katara claimed that he has created a new record after the acute arthritis patient revealed he sat on a Swiss Ball for nine hours.
Katara, 48, got off the ball Wednesday evening after ensuring the feat had been witnessed by neutral umpires and also video filmed. He used a 120 cm ball.
"It was not easy. Balancing on the ball needs lot of concentration and balancing," Katara told IANS.
"I will now approach the Guinness people to record my achievement," he added.
Katara said he began exercising on the Swiss Ball to get rid of acute arthritis.
The Swiss Ball, developed by an Italian in 1963, is used for athletic training and exercising leg muscles.
