It's taking me a bit of time to get used to my Salli Pro, but I'm loving it. My back and neck have been terrible for years; my posture in a normal office chair has been the direct cause of that, which I can now see from my very good posture up on my Salli. My back and neck are fabulous now because it's almost impossible to slump over my keyboard from my stool. My inner thighs are getting a great workout because I make sure I keep myself moving in the saddle a bit all day, but at the end of the day, I still feel like I've just climbed off my horse! Every day gets a tiny bit better though, so I'm thinking that once I get used to being in the saddle all day, even my thighs will thank me for it.
The Salli saddle is fantastic, every other chair now feels tiring and weird, it is helping my posture no end!
As baby got bigger it was harder to sit on a normal operator stool. The salli pro narrow allows for greater hip flexibility and the rocking motion helps blood and lymph circulation so there’s less pain and swelling while working. Takes getting used to. Highly recommend.
Go no further than Salli. Sitting can be joyful and empowering in a way that supports you, and has you poised to perform. This is as good as it gets!
For a chair retailer, I am the nightmare customer. I recently sustained a trimaleolar fracture and this has severely impacted my ability to place my feet flat on the floor and affected my lower vertebrae. I approached Salli with little hope of sitting comfortably to do work as conventional ergonomic chairs had failed me; even Herman Miller chairs - I was a challenging case. As you can deduce, I was skeptical the chair would help, but I had to try all options; I needed to find a way to sit sustainably for a normal work day. After researching the chair, I made contact with David, who went out of his way to visit me so that I could experience the chair; and you do need to experience it, it has a different feel to other chairs. Due to this level of customer service, I purchased the chair and initially it seemed to make things worse, yet I was encouraged to keep going to get through the adjustment period - I had a chair on standby which I used during this process. So two months went by, and I was convinced that this chair was going to be like the rest, and just contribute to worsening my condition - then one day it happened... I couldn't stand the other chair, the discomfort from sitting extended periods was disappearing, my body had become attuned to the chair - the other chair became unusable and a source of pain. Hence, the Salli Swayfit has allowed me to be productive again in a sustainable way that fosters the well-being of my body; I even sleep better as a result of better posture during the day. So, I am writing this review as it may benefit people like myself with complex injuries, as reviews that address these issues are rare. If you have a complex back problem, this chair may help you. Give it a try, and most importantly be patient with it in the beginning - have another chair on standby if you need it during the adjustment phase. It took me 8-10 weeks to adjust, but now I detest 'ergonomic' chairs when I have to sit on them, as I know they are just contributing to postural issues and chronic pain. The top line: buy a Salli chair; invest in yourself, invest in a healthy body.
Great product and quick delivery time - thanks
Great product with prompt delivery
Thank you so much. I had dreadful hip pain that was making it really difficult to work and that was affecting my everyday life. Within a week of using my new seat, it was gone and my core strength improved rapidly. So grateful.
My leather Salli saddle chair encourages me to ‘hold my head up high’ and maintain spinal alignment, whilst the swivel feature promotes lower back movement to keep me from locking up. Truly a great investment in a quality product. The Salli team went out of their way to help ensure I purchased the correct size, and it was delivered the next day from interstate in the middle of the COVID crisis. Outstanding service and support. If you are thinking about purchasing a saddle chair, go Salli all the way.
Love my sali sway. I no longer have a stiff back at the end of the day!
When compared to other saddle chairs, the Salli Light chair is a great option.
It is versatile, light and simple to use, and allows lots of work and study to be done.
The only down side would be that it is a bit hard on the buttocks. One gets with time, used to it, but, it would have been nicer if the cushion was a bit more gentle with the bottom bit.
Apart from that... Great buy!!!
After months of working from home, I still love my saddle chair. I hardly suffer from lower back pain anymore, though it did take a while to get used to the chair. I am going to try to see if I can sneak one into the office when I finally return. Expensive but good quality - well worth it!!
I am extremely happy with my Salli Swayfit. Ot was straightforward to assemble and very robust. It arrived the day after I ordered it, even though I didn't request express delivery. When I had a problem with it not holding its height, the team were very quick to respond and were prepared to organise someone to come to my home to fix it. They talked me through the modification instead. The stool is easy to use and looks great. I am undergoing rehab for hip arthritis so don't use it all day, but it means I can use my computer again as sitting in a chair was too painful.
Excellent online buying experience. Product was as described and the castor wheels work great.
This chair is a life changer .. once you make the adjustment makes working from a regular chair seem totally crazy. My back thanks you every day.
I purchased this chair a little while ago following two back surgeries. I sit down at a desk all day and was really worried about how I would cope when returning to work. I was off work for four months.
I can honestly say that this chair has been my saving grace. It took a little getting used to, as expected, but it has allowed me to sit in a position where there is much less pressure on my back and my posture is correct. The whole process of enquiring about the chair, ordering and home delivery was easy and the best thing I could have done for my current and future wellbeing. I'm now back at work full time and coping really well. I've also since sustained a further injury to my back (after the second surgery) but am still working full time and managing well.
I had much contact back and forth with David at Salli prior to my purchase, who answered all of my questions, gave me so much information and made me feel completely at ease about my purchase. Thanks so much David, I really appreciate your help
I thought at the time it was a bit of a big purchase, but absolutely 100% worth it and I would highly recommend these chairs to anyone who sits down all day and/or has back problems.
Company was great - answered questions quickly via online chat, delivered the stool in 3 days with a personal note. The saddle stool took some time get used to, but I love it now. I work at a desk and now I’m always more conscious of how I’m sitting. The lower back pain I was feeling has reduced significantly.
Very pleased with our purchase.
God once my legs got used to the sddle spread position

Ergonomic chairs have been a thing for a while. Once I became an office worker, I wondered why they weren't more common. What you'll notice when you come across people with ergonomic anythings is that they're always pretty happy to let you try out whatever it is that they have. This is what happens with my Salli chair.
The first thing you'll notice is that there is an instruction sheet about getting used to your chair. The entire idea is to transition to your salli chair over the course of a week, rather than jump in and do a day long of something new. I am a big one for following directions for the most part, but was fine to spend the entire day on my seat for the fourth day. (Don't tell anyone!).
So what happened? It's odd, but the first thing I noticed was that I don't feel like I'm wearing half a jacket all the time with no backrest. I am amazed how much easier it is to stay at a comfortable temperature.
I can get out of my chair easier, sit closer to the desk and haven't had any of those "why does my lower back ache" aches.
Just be ready to tell your curious coworkers which way to get onto it.
If you play guitar or bass, you should try one of the Salli Chairs out. You may reconsider your practice stool.
We have sit/stand desks in our office and the Salli Light compliment the desks perfectly. Very happy indeed.
My wife and I are very happy with our Salli chairs. It took some weeks for me to adapt to mine as I got a bit of back pain at first (as it said in the booklet) – but now it is great.
The service and help I received at Hawthorn was very good too. Many thanks.
