Problems when sitting on Salli?

The chair feels too hard

Sit a little bit further back in the chair. If you sit too much in the front the chair presses your thighs and genital area uncomfortably. Also your sitting bones are not on the thickest part of the seat. Also you need to get used to having your weight on the sitting bones instead of the soft tissue where it disturbs the circulation, and that takes some time. When you ride a horse or a bike you might also feel you sit bones in the beginning.

It may also be that you are sitting too high. Then the whole weight of the upper body is on the sitting bones. Or your gas spring may be too long for you and you cannot place your feet firmly on the floor, and thus your feet don’t carry any of the weight.

The chair feels too wide

You are probably sitting too high. Adjust the chair a little lower and it will feel better. If the chair ends up in its lowest position and it still doesn’t feel right, you need to get a shorter gas spring.

If you have Salli SwingFit or Salli Salli MultiAdjuster, adjust the width of the gap. Release the handle, adjust the two parts of the seat and lock again. If you have Salli MultiAdjuster or Salli Twin, change the inclination so that you lean a bit more forward. See video about adjustments

Your back aches

Make sure that you are sitting high enough! If you sit too low it’s easy to place your feet in front of you, and in that position you will slouch because you are not in balance. Slouching will harm and hurt your back.

In the beginning it’s quite normal to get back aches / muscles soreness, because different muscles are working from what you are used to. It will pass, just give your body time to adapt to the new position. Also your inner thighs may feel tight and the area around your sitting bones sore, but these discomforts will also pass.

Your chair is not swinging

Make sure that you chair is Salli Swing or Salli SwingFit; there is a sticker under the seat plate indicating the model. Adjust the swing mechanism nut a bit looser with the tool you got with the chair (or use a 24 mm wrench). See instructions on how to adjust the swing mechanism.

Your chair is making a noise or swinging too much

If the seat of your Salli Swing or Salli SwingFit is too loose it will make a “click” sound at the extreme positions. Tighten the swing mechanism nut. See instructions on how to adjust the swing mechanism.

Your chair can`t be adjusted up or down

Oil the gas spring once a year. If you do not adjust the height often, dust will get into the gas spring and it will dry out, which results in it not working properly.

If you have a Foot Height Control and the foot pedal is not working, turn the chair upside down. Tighten or loosen the screw, only 180 degrees before testing it. Usually only a very small adjustment is needed.

The width adjustment is stuck

The width adjustment handle can get stuck if you tighten it too hard, or press the seat plates together while sitting on the chair. Hold the chair in front or you and make sure the handle is pointing to your right, and the front of the chair to your left. Then push the handle away from you. If it has stuck, you need to use more speed/force.

Salli Review - Trader

As a private trader I spend a lot of time seated in front of a computer. Over 23 years of trading I’ve tried all sorts of ergonomic chairs and endured severe bouts of lower back problems, some of which have required hospitalization.

Since using a Salli Swayfit I’m over the moon… my lower back pain has markedly reduced. Based on my experience I have no qualms recommending a Salli chair to anyone who spends a lot of time in an office chair.

Thanks for the incredible review! So many 'ergonomic' chairs out there that are anything but ergonomic - only very adjustable - big difference! We think the use of the word ergonomic should be regulated ;)
No more neck pain

I have always hated working at a desk but this changes everything. No more neck pain, fatigue, and tight hips. My saddle seat keeps me focused and alert and supports me in a perfect posture. Totally worth it!

Fantastic, that's what we like to hear! Sometimes people don't believe Salli can make such a difference, but again, you are proof it does - thanks for the review!
Great chair for improved posture

I'm a dental therapist, since using my Salli chair my posture has improved and back pain has all but resolved. I can't go back to a normal chair again. Postage was very fast. Assembly was super easy - no need for any tools.

Awesome! It will get better and better.
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.
