Salli Review - Neurosurgeon

About two years ago we first tested the Salli MultiAdjuster ergonomic chair for surgeons. It came to our attention through cooperation with a local Salli dealer in our project on the improvement of ergonomics in the OR. Especially for the field of neurosurgery, an ergonomic sitting position is crucial, since many of the surgical procedures last for several hours.

After extensive testing of the MultiAdjuster chair for surgeons we found the ergonomic sitting position, especially together with lumbar backrest, very useful, especially during surgeries where the patient is positioned in a half-sitting position. In this position, the surgeon has to work with his arms extended, leaning backwards in order to be able to work on the posterior cranial fossa. Sitting on the ergonomic MultiAdjuster chair forces the neurosurgeon to keep an upright posture, and by doing so keeps the strain on the lower back to a minimum.

At first, several of my colleagues were hesitant to use this chair due its unusual saddle shape. However, after testing it, it became very obvious that there is a big advantage in using this ergonomic chair for long procedures, and several chairs were ordered by our department. It proved to be very convenient in its handling in terms of changing the height and the tilt of the seat.

It is my personal opinion that over time the MultiAdjuster chair for surgeons reduces the stress on the back of a neurosurgeon. Since I have started to use the Salli MultiAdjuster chair, I have not gone back to using the conventional bar-stool-type chairs. For me personally, the saddle type chair, especially with a lower back support, is one of the best ergonomic chairs for the OR on the market.

    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' !
