For over five months now, I have had the opportunity to use a Salli saddle chair. My experiences have been very positive. As a matter of fact, anything negative or reproachable has not come up. The model I have been using is the MultiAdjuster, which has the seat width adjustment.
I have been an optician for over 20 years now, and I have sat on many kinds of chairs. Some have had backrests and even arm rests. The seat and backrests have usually been adjustable to a certain degree. Optician's daily work includes eye exams and contact lens fittings. That means that I sit in front of a desk or behind a microscope while working. The sitting is not continuous, but on a daily basis I sit for 20–30 minutes at a time for approximately 8–14 times a day. When I'm doing an eye examination, I cannot sit still, since I have to be able move around in front of the patient. Problems of the lower back, pain, tiredness, numbing, and blood circulation problems in the legs have been troubling me in the past.
Now I know how easy and effortless it is to sit on a proper chair. After using my Salli chair, I have not had any back problems or numbness in my legs. The chair moves around lightly, but is still very sturdy to sit on. The chair is not unstable or wobbly. I don't get the numb, tingling feeling in my legs anymore and the sitting position is relaxed.
I have quite short legs, but the Salli chair can be adjusted low enough. It's good to sit on a Salli, my posture stays good and moving around is easy. It's the best work chair I have ever sat on.
