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.

Great investment

The idea of being able to adjust the width of this saddle chair intrigued me and after some research I decided to try it. I found the chair was initially a little hard and my bottom would get sore, but after a few days of use I no longer noticed it. I have tried out a few different width settings now and I've found one suitable for me, being female and short. I feel it was a valuable purchase!

Thanks for the great review Julia. Sounds like after a short adjustment period (very normal) you are well on your way to happy healthy sitting! It keeps getting better too - enjoy!
Great Product

Very easy to install and now my Salli Saddle looks as good as new.

Thanks Ritesh, that's great to hear.
Excellent Chair

I purchased my Salli Swingfit 4 years after graduating dentistry as I was having some upper and lower back issues and could feel that my posture was poor at work. My only regret is not having purchased the chair sooner to prevent these issues from arising in the first place! It is a very comfortable chair and of high quality. Since purchasing the chair I have also fallen pregnant and I think working pregnant would have been even more uncomfortable if I did not have this chair and I have been able to work up until almost full term without any issues. I highly recommend the Salli products and I have also been impressed with the customer service and with how quickly my chair arrived. Thanks Salli Team and David!

Awww thanks for the review and kind words! We have heard from several pregnant ladies that it has really helped them due to the sitting position. Glad you found us - better late than never!

Salli saved my career

I have a bad back fracture line l4 l5 cervical spondylitis . I had a lot of trouble as you would assume and looked at my options. Used the bambach chair ,a very well built chair but extremely heavy and cumbersome. I got a salli the very basic version in 2012 and have said goodbye to lower back troubles. This new on I just got has the new wheels i a treat to use. i will be ordering the new wheels for the older chair as well . Highly recommend to anyone working dentist technicians .

Fantastic to hear Gaurav! Thanks for the amazing review. When we tell people Salli can change your life it is stories like yours that confirm it - and makes us feel fantastic about what we do.
