Doctoral thesis about saddle chairs in dentistry

The dental clinical practice: ergonomic analysis of the sitting posture, 2017

Dentist and Physical Educator Giovana Renata Gouvêa proved statistically in her thesis in December 2017 that the impact of the seat saddle Salli in dental practic is more positive, when compared to conventional seat in some of the studied variables. 

The saddle seats used in the study were Salli Saddle Chairs, and the follow-up time was 10 months. The systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to verify whether the saddle seat provides lower ergonomic risk than conventional seats.

In conclusion, the impact of the saddle seat, when compared to the conventional one, was significantly more positive regarding ergonomic risk, projection of the lateral center of gravity, daily problems related to the cervical region, and satisfaction.

The saddle seat was better evaluated regarding seating satisfaction in all aspects (p < 0.001). The thesis can be viewed in full here

    Good price for an almost perfect saddle chair
    Thanks for your review Luis. I think it is is very accurate, and is why we recommend the some of the other models if you are doing extensive sitting. That's not to say of course that you can't sit for long periods but it is definitely firmer than the Sway or Pro models. Sounds like you are getting good results in any case.
    A great option
    Fantastic Robert! We think there will be many WFH users sneaking their Salli chairs back into the office when they return - why would you want to sit on anything else right? ;)
    Great product and great service
    Thanks for the great review! Glad it is helping you so much.
