This ball was specially designed to deflate slowly if punctured, thereby reducing risk of injury. It also provides improved stability at the points of body contact and enhanced performance due to the responsive surface design.

The ball comes with two plugs, a plug remover, an inflation adapter (the hollow thing with threads), and a tape. The inflation adapter is narrower than a standard automotive tire valve, so it may or may not fit on a compressor air chuck. I did not on mine, but I have a inflator that I use on pool rafts that the adapter fit into.
The tape has three holes in it. You inflate the ball until the holes line up while the tape is wrapped around the ball. Lay the hole at the end of the tape over the inflation hole, then line up the next hole on the tape. Insert the inflation adapter while it is connected to your pump or compressor through the two holes and inflate the ball until the tape is taut. Quickly remove the inflation adapter and insert one of the two plugs.
At this point, you should wait until the ball material stretches out and becomes round. A few hours should do it, or go overnight. After that, wrap the tape around the ball so that the first hole and third hole line up. Quickly remove the plug and insert the adapter which is still connected to your pump or compressor. Inflate the ball until the tape is taut again. Quickly remove the inflation adapter and insert the plug. The ball is now ready for use.
Keep the tape or measure the circumference of the properly inflated ball. Use that in case you ever have to re-inflate the ball.
(2) I did receive the correct item: The Thera-Band Pro Series SCP Ball (Retail Package), 55 cm/22 inch diameter. It's listed as a red color, but mine is closer to an orange color. No matter.
(3) The Retail Package presumably is packaged in a box. Mine was not. The ball is fully flattened and wrapped in a plastic bag. There is also a poster (with inflation instructions and exercises), a small plastic bag with a measuring tape, and a small plastic bag with (2) plugs, (1) plug removal tool, and (1) inflation adapter. There is no country of origin marked on the ball itself. The main bag and the two small bags are marked "Made in China", so I assume the ball is made in China.
(4) My ball was free of grease and dirt.
(5) I've seen listings that stated that the package is supposed to include multiple inflation adapters. Mine came with only one. It did not fit my electric compressor (for auto tires), and was useless to me. Fortunately, my compressor does have a kit of (3) adapters, and one was suitable for this ball.
(6) The tape measure is a plastic ribbon. It has 3 holes: hole #1 at one end and hole #2 and hole #3 at the opposite end. The tape measure is used to measure the circumference of the ball during inflation. To calculate the diameter, you divide the circumference by pi (3.14). The distance between hole #1 and hole #2 is about 54-5/8", corresponding to a diameter of about 44 cm/17". The distance between hole #1 and hole #3 is about 68", corresponding to the stated diameter of 55 cm/22" (55 cm actually corresponds to 21.7", but rounded to the nearest inch as 22"). You place hole #1 of the tape over the inflation hole in the ball, wrap the tape around the ball, making sure the tape is straight and centered, and check to see that the inflation hole is lined up at the other end of the tape between hole #2 (minimum inflation diameter) and hole #3 (maximum inflation diameter).
(7) I highly recommend an electric compressor instead of a hand or foot pump; it makes inflation literally a breeze. One of the reasons I bought this ball is because it specifically does *not* come bundled with a pump. [Why pay for a junky pump? Also, if you buy more than one ball, why pay for multiple junky pumps?] This ball, like all exercise balls I've seen, does not have a needle valve, like a basketball. It has an inflation hole. You insert an inflation nozzle into the inflation hole, inflate the ball, remove the inflation nozzle, and then insert a plug to seal the ball. When you remove the inflation nozzle, of course, some air escapes before you have a chance to insert the plug. With a compressor, you can keep the air stream aimed at the inflation hole as you remove the inflation nozzle; this reduces the amount of escaping air. Cover the inflation hole quickly with a fingertip of one hand. Grab the plug with the other hand. Quickly uncover the inflation hole and insert the plug. Insert the plug snugly, but do not push it all the way in: let it stick out about 1/8" at first (see below).
(8) Some reviewers have complained that their balls are too small. The instructions clearly state, however, that the ball expands and needs to be inflated in stages. The ball is shipped flattened and heavily creased. I first filled it until it became a full sphere. The diameter was only about 15". And I thought, "No way will I blow this up to 22" diameter without it exploding!" But I let it settle for about 4 hrs, then inflated it to the 17" minimum diameter as measured with the tape. I then let it settle overnight. The following morning, it had deflated somewhat, so I reinflated it to 17" diameter. I then let it settle for 4 hrs again, and inflated it to 21" diameter. The instructions caution strongly against overinflation (greater than 22" diameter). So I left it slightly below the maximum. Even at 21" diameter, the ball is very stiff.
(9) Since you need to inflate this ball several times, you should not push the plug all the way in until you have reached the final diameter. The plug removal tool is a plastic fork. It is difficult to use, and I was concerned that I might slip and puncture the ball. If you leave the plug jutting out about 1/8", the seal is tight, but you can remove it readily. When you reach the final diameter, push the plug all the way in.
(10) Since I use the ball for neck exercises, after final inflation, I first washed the ball with warm water and dish detergent. There is a mild odor typical of PVC (the manufacturer states that the ball is made of PVC), but no strong fishy odor typical of excess free plasticizer.
(11) I've had the ball inflated for several days now. Pressure is holding well so far. Most of the major creases are gone, but there are still noticeable remnants. I'm hoping they're purely cosmetic and don't weaken the structure.
(12) The ball has a series of shallow circular ridges (akin to circles of latitude on a globe) to reduce slipping. I would prefer a more uniform pattern, such as an overall diamond grid. The surface of the ball otherwise has a good feel, not slippery, but also not goopy and not tacky.
(13) I'll provide an update after I've used the ball for several months.
