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.

    Hip pain gone
    Fantastic! As you have found the Salli can help with more than just back pain. The neutral sitting posture removes stress on joints as well. Keep sitting happy!

    Good price for an almost perfect saddle chair
    Thanks for your review Luis. I think it is is very accurate, and is why we recommend the some of the other models if you are doing extensive sitting. That's not to say of course that you can't sit for long periods but it is definitely firmer than the Sway or Pro models. Sounds like you are getting good results in any case.
    A great option
    Fantastic Robert! We think there will be many WFH users sneaking their Salli chairs back into the office when they return - why would you want to sit on anything else right? ;)
