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.
Accidentally ordered the wrong chair and customer service was so helpful with helping fix my mix up! Great chair, love it
You are welcome Lucy. Glad you are loving your Salli.
We use Salli stools in our dental clinic and love the quality and ergonomics. Our most recent purchase was a smooth process with good communication throughout. Highly recommend.

Thanks for the great review Effie. Yes there is an adjustment period as it is a new way of sitting, but once you adjust, there is no going back.
Having previously used a cheaper saddle stool for a while before getting this one I have really appreciated the difference. I can feel the quality and extra comfort all round. Very glad I made the swap to a Salli.
Great! Thanks for the review Deb.
As a chronic ‘huncher,’ who spends waaay too much tine in front of a screen, I went looking for a sit/stand chair that would also make me sit correctly (and get rid of the increasingly unmanageable pain in my neck, shoulders, arms, back - you name it).
I did some research, spent some time chatting with the friendly and very helpful Dave online, and brought the last Salli Pro they had in stock.
It arrived faster than expected, was very easy (for my husband) to assemble, and there was an immediate - and by immediate I mean same day - pain relief.
The only downside is that it’s not cheap. But then, neither were the three-times-a-week chiropractic massages I was getting to try and stop the pain...
Fantastic! As you have indicated, they are not cheap, but they pay for themselves not just in savings but in improving your life.
Definitely improves posture. Don’t think I’ll ever go back to a normal seat. Salli seat saddle - is a bit uncomfortable at first, but you get used to it after a while.
Prompt response and delivery, when the rest of the world was at a crawl, much appreciated 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I’m writing this while sitting on a Salli Pro that I bought about 2 months ago. I couldn’t be happier. I have osteoarthritis (OA) in both hips and 3 vertebrae that have been injured various ways over the years, but I’m a writer, so I need to be able to sit comfortably for long periods in a way that won’t cause anything to hurt too badly or possibly even make my OA worse. I thought the Salli Pro was a bit pricey, but took a chance, and I’m very pleased with it! The customer service could not have been better. I placed my order during pandemic border restrictions, and Salli was super-transparent and communicative when a supply issue popped up. On arrival, assembly was dead easy, and the instructions were clear and cheerful; basically, let your butt get used to it, have faith, and literally ride it out. I did! It takes a few days for your body to adjust, but it will, and pretty soon it will likely become your go-to. I even wheel it from my office into the lounge just for watching TV sometimes. Speaking of wheels: if you have hardwood floors like I do, get the roller-skate rubber wheels for the extra $20 or whatever — they’re perfect for the surface, and it doesn’t affect the chair’s stability at all. Anyway, love the chair, love the company, would recommend highly!
Fantastic to hear Robert, and thanks for the review..
I've been using the Salli Pro for the past 3 months, and it's the best chair for my back. I work as a dentist and i'd highly recommend it for anyone wanting to improve their posture as they work. David Faul has been a great help in helping me decide which chair to purchase. Highly recommended
Great to hear Justin! And you are welcome :)
This is a terrific chair - took a little time to get used to it - but truly love it. In particular, this chair really helps in active seating, using your core and improving posture. Thank you.
Awesome, and you are welcome! Once you adapt there is no turning back. The active seating is definitely a great feature.
You can really feel it working your core! At first I had to take lots of breaks from using it but now it's very comfortable and has greatly improved my posture and with it removed the aches from bad posture.
Thanks for the great review - it sounds like the chair is doing a good job for you.
Totally recommend this to anyone serious about their posture and ongoing health. Game changer! After weeks slowly leaning into the new way of sitting I am beginning to notice my core strength to sit in a relaxed yet engaged posture with improved breathing and concentration.
Fantastic! That's what we like to hear - thanks for the great review.
Salli with backrest
The stool is of excellent quality and the colour was correct. It took some time to arrive but the service was very good, I received updates on its tracking often enough that I wasn’t worried. It also tucks completely away under my desk, giving me extra more room! Great purchase.
Thanks for your patience Carey. It has been a challenging year for many reasons!
took a little bit to get used to it but just love it now. Best thing for my neck injury that I've ever done!
Awesome! Great to hear. As we say to everyone, stick with it and it will reward you :)
Firm ride but does make you improve your posture
Great! Yes it is a firmer ride that what we are normally used to (by design), but over time you will become even more used to it and it will feel perfectly normal.
Just thought I’d give you some feedback. I am working longer hours in front of my computer due to covid. I found I was getting terrible knots in my upper back. I decided to use my Salli for both office work and playing guitar. I have had no pain for about 2 months now.
Quality and functionality of product all seems excellent. Posture assumed at sitting is also excellent. Only problem is my customer (teacher in my school) finds the Salli Light saddle too hard, so it's tiring to sit on.
Thanks for the review Simon. This can certainly be the case for this model if sitting for extended periods. This is why we recommend other models for longer sitting durations.
After a few months of using my new Salli saddle chair my back issues are gone. My afternoon work is more effective and my investment is repaying me with improved health and better outputs. Thanks Salli
Awesome to hear Peter, thanks for the review. Once you adapt there is no going back (pardon the pun).
Solid make with quality parts. The inline style castors work great on concrete floors. The adjustments are easy to use. The seat really keeps my posture/back and hips/legs in a great position, whilst having some flexibility in movement in the saddle. I’d change from it to standing and back 3-4 times a day working as a software developer. I’d say it's well worth the price tag given how much my back feels better than sitting in a chair. The Salli team were also super friendly and helpful!
Thanks for the review Ash, that's great to hear.
It took a while to get used to it but I can't imagine using anything else now. Great design and good quality build.
Thanks for the review Pete, that pretty much sums it up. It can take time to break old habits, but it is worth the effort.
My neck pain of many years has now receeded to a point that I barely notice any tension.
To a large degree this reduction is due to my investment in a Salli saddle seat, which I now thoroughly enjoy using.
Awesome! It will keep getting better too.
