How to sit correctly on Salli

getting on and off salli

Sitting on and getting off Salli

Stand beside the chair, lift one leg over the chair, from the back, to the other side of the chair and sit down. To get up, move your feet slightly forward and stand up. This way the chair remains behind you.

Sit high enough

In the beginning you can lift the chair too high, so that your legs are not touching the floor. Lower the chair slowly till your feet are firmly on the floor. There is now about a 135 degree angle in the knees, and between the thighs and the upper body.
Why? The wide angle enables you to tilt the pelvis forward and maintain the natural curve in the lower back. If you are sitting too low, it is easy to keep the feet in the front, not on the sides, and this often results in a slouched position and the rounding of the back.

Sit on the back of the chair

When sitting your buttocks should be at the back edge of the chair.
Why? If you sit too far in the front, the edges of the middle gap press the inner thighs and genital area. In the right position the sitting bones are on the softest place on the seat where the padding is the thickest.

Keep your feet on the sides

Riding-like sitting is aiming at the same position as when we are standing: when looked at from the side the shoulder, pelvis and heel are on the same line. 
Why? If the feet are in the front, the back is often rounded into a wrong position. Moving the feet to the sides makes the pelvis tilt forward, enabling the natural curve in the lower back and straightening the whole back.

Table and monitor height

On Salli you are sitting higher than on a traditional chair, which usually means that the standard (72 cm) tables are too low. The chair is of no use if you have to slouch towards the table, so you need to be able to raise the table somehow. Salli’s best friend is an electrically adjustable table that can be brought up to the standing height.

Pay also attention to the height of the monitors so that you don’t accidentally lower your head forward. The head weighs several kilos and easily makes the neck muscles tense, disturbing the circulation into the head. The brain doesn’t get enough oxygen and you get tired and get headaches.

Seat width

Adjust the width of the seat so that it suits you; you can do this in Salli SwingFit and Salli MultiAdjuster. Especially men need to make sure that the seat parts do not move too close to each other during the day.

Move!

You can move sideways easily, when you push with the one foot and pull with the other. Make use of the swing mechanism of Salli Sway and Salli Swayfit, roll on the chair to fetch things, walk while talking on the phone, exercise for a couple of minutes, work standing at times.

    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' !
