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

    Back feels better but my office desk is too low so use it intermittently

    Thanks for the review Joy. Sitting height is very important, as is your desk height. A height adjustable desk is preferable, but you can always raise your existing desk height with stack-its, bricks etc , or a desk converter to sit on top of the desk.

    This will make a big difference and allow you to use you Salli chair more effectively.

    Ergonomics matter

    After 25yrs I finally decided to upgrade to a saddle stool.....and what a difference the Salli stool has made to my posture. The team at Salli were very knowledgeable, informative and efficient and are a Melbourne-based, family owned business.

    Thanks for the great review Brendan. It's never too late!
