Optimise Your Sitting Environment

  • 2 min read
Some helpful hints to optimise your sitting environment.
  1. Furnish your office with a two-part saddle chair and an electrically height-adjustable table with a recess and elbow rests.
  2. Purchase an ergonomic keyboard that suits you, and two high-quality screens and a good graphics card.
  3. Get a Bluetooth headset of good quality, so that you can walk and stretch while talking on the phone. It’s also worthwhile to have a little mat for stretching on the office floor. Note that a couple of incidents have been reported, where people seemed to experience facial nerve problems after using a wireless headset for long periods of time.
  4. Learn to use and adjust the table and chair correctly. You should sit on a saddle chair from behind.
  5. Learn to use the different height settings of the table: sit approximately 2 cm lower in the afternoon than in the morning, 3–4 cm lower when writing than when reading and 15–40 cm lower when sitting than when standing.
  6. When working, use trousers and underwear that are not tight on the buttocks and around the genital area.
  7. It would also be good to use sleeveless shirts. If the armpits get moist, the sitter may try to hold their hands up in order to get more ventilation, which increases tension in the shoulders.
  8. Place your printer, cabinets and other things you often need on different levels so that you have to reach for them many times a day. The correct way to reach is to have the supporting foot underneath and the back straight, so that it is the pelvis that twists and not the back. Reach evenly with both hands and alternate the supporting foot.

    Great purchase

    Amazing purchase, great customer service, quick delivery time and answered all my questions. I'm surprised at how great the wheels slide on the floor and how much better my posture is.

    Thanks Stephanie, glad you are loving it.
    My spine thanks you

    I am really feeling the benefits of the seat. I have stuffed neck and shoulder problems for years and am feeling that I am gaining benefit from sitting better at my office virtually every day. I highly recommend this chair to anyone who works at a desk but don't wait until you are desperate. Do it before the troubles start!

    Thanks for the great review Kristine. Yes - you are absolutely correct, prevention is better than cure.
    A stunning product

    From the first point of contact through to delivery of the chair, your service and communication was amazing. Nothing was too much bother and the quality of the chair is everything that was promised. Now looking forward to becoming very good friends with my Saddle Seat. I am expecting this to take time while the body adjusts to a new way of sitting but already I can feel my back re-aligning while working at my desk. Thank you for a wonderful product.

    Thanks Jeni, it will keep getter better and better!
    Everything I hoped for!

    I am a remedial massage therapist and needed a chair that moved quietly over a hard floor without the normal clatter of plastic castors. I purchased my Salli chair with the optional inline castors which are whisper quiet and glide effortlessly. I also upgraded to a comfy red leather seat which makes the chair look fast even when it isn’t moving! Customer service was sensational. Excellent buying experience. Highly recommend Salli chairs.

    Thanks for the great review Gary - keep on rollin' !
