Optimise your sitting environment

  1. Furnish your office with a two-part saddle chair and an electrically height-adjustable table with a recess and elbow rests.
  2. Purchase an ergonomic keyboard that suits you, and two high-quality screens and a good graphics card.
  3. Get a Bluetooth headset of good quality, so that you can walk and stretch while talking on the phone. It’s also worthwhile to have a little mat for stretching on the office floor. Note that a couple of incidents have been reported, where people seemed to experience facial nerve problems after using a wireless headset for long periods of time.
  4. Learn to use and adjust the table and chair correctly. You should sit on a saddle chair from behind.
  5. Learn to use the different height settings of the table: sit approximately 2 cm lower in the afternoon than in the morning, 3–4 cm lower when writing than when reading and 15–40 cm lower when sitting than when standing.
  6. When working, use trousers and underwear that are not tight on the buttocks and around the genital area.
  7. It would also be good to use sleeveless shirts. If the armpits get moist, the sitter may try to hold their hands up in order to get more ventilation, which increases tension in the shoulders.
  8. Place your printer, cabinets and other things you often need on different levels so that you have to reach for them many times a day. The correct way to reach is to have the supporting foot underneath and the back straight, so that it is the pelvis that twists and not the back. Reach evenly with both hands and alternate the supporting foot.

    Salli Pro is the real deal! Excellent choice worth every dollar

    I'm pretty blown away by this product and the customer service that Salli Australia has provided.

    I used to have sharp pain in my dominant shoulder and wrist and a persistent backache after hunching over in long editing sessions at the computer. I researched everything from ergonomic gamer chairs to kneeling chairs and finally arrived at the saddle chairs from Salli.

    I was a little hesitant to make the investment but made an appointment to test out the chairs anyway. David walked me through the different models and options and really patiently answered all my questions (which were A LOT). I ended up purchasing the Salli Pro with rollerblade rubber wheels for hardwood floors on the spot. (I'm 161cm and 50kg and could have gone for the Salli Pro Small, but felt the Pro was a bit more comfortable.)

    As advised, I eased into using the chair at home, and it took just a couple of days to get used to it. I just want to say there’s no turning back to regular chairs for me now. I have NO PAIN in my shoulders and find myself wanting to sit on it all the time. I highly recommend this chair to anyone who is chair-bound for most of the day. Thank you, David and the Salli Australia team!

    Prompt and efficient service thank you

    Useful for my spinal injury

    I have very specific spinal requirements due to an injury. The Salli Pro gives me the granular adjustments I need.

    Change the way you sit

    The saddle chair has me sitting upright again. You sit on your sitting bones and your spine is naturally straight. Now it does take some getting used to, so two of us share it and swap each hour or so to begin with but I can sit on it for half a day within the first few weeks. The chairs are incredibly well made and robust.
