How to sit correctly on 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 thefloor. 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 Swing and Salli SwingFit, roll on the chair to fetch things, walk while talking on the phone, exercise for a couple of minutes, work standing at times.

Salli Chair Replacement Covers set of 2

Really happy with the covers, saves buying a whole new chair

Thanks Lan. With the spare parts available there is never a need to replace a Salli, with the 3mm steel base construction they should last a lifetime!
Best investment!

Love my Salli chair and my back is better for using it!

Awesome! Great to hear, thanks for the fantastic review.
Great seat

I’m so happy I upgraded wheels and leather. Rolls like a dream. Comfortable to sit on and work from. I was worried it would take a while to break in but haven’t had any issues

You can't go past leather for a bit of luxury and those wheels, yep, they are fantastically smooth! Thanks for the great review and keep on 'Sitting Happy'!
Excellent service

David was very helpful throughout the whole process

Thanks William, glad it is working well for you.
Great investment

The idea of being able to adjust the width of this saddle chair intrigued me and after some research I decided to try it. I found the chair was initially a little hard and my bottom would get sore, but after a few days of use I no longer noticed it. I have tried out a few different width settings now and I've found one suitable for me, being female and short. I feel it was a valuable purchase!

Thanks for the great review Julia. Sounds like after a short adjustment period (very normal) you are well on your way to happy healthy sitting! It keeps getting better too - enjoy!
