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.

    Happy Salli customer

    The Salli chair is great with my new sit/stand Zen Desk which has 4 customisable height settings selectable at the press of a button. Does take time to get used to sitting up straight but all good now.

    Awesome , sounds like you have a great setup going there.

    Fitted perfectly and are smooth and quiet. So good, my son has taken the chair.

    Best Desk Accessory Ever!

    I had been having issues with my elbow for a long time being sore from sitting at my desk and working for long periods of time. Since purchasing the Elbow Pad Armrest the pain has almost gone and completing my work has gotten alot easier. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

    Great to hear Samantha. They are a great accessory.
