Sitting and the pelvic area

The inner thigh has a lot more lymph nodes than are described or shown in books. This has a lot to do with sitting health.

The pelvis in general is very important from the point of view of sitting, because:

  • Posture/angle of the pelvis determines the posture of the lower spine, and usually all the way to the head
  • In sitting the weight of the upper body presses the pelvic tissues with bad consequences
  • The biggest concentration of the lymph system organs is in the pelvic area
  • There is a massive concentration of blood vessels in the pelvis
  • There are the biggest muscles of the body in up to three layers
  • The pelvis is the most common place of muscle tensions because of poor liquid circulation, pressure, unnatural positions, immobility, stress, etc.
  • There are sensitive organs between the tail bone and sacrum with very high cancer concentration (males = half, females = quarter of all cancers, in an area the capacity of which is just over one litre)
  • There are very sensitive genitals with lots of medical problems
  • Clothing around the pelvic area is very often numerous and too tight, which disturbs the fluid circulation
  • The sitting position and bending the pelvis to a 90 degree angle makes the clothing even tighter
  • Excessive clothing and chair paddings cause the temperature often to be too high in the pelvic region causing, among other things, sweating, discomfort, poor hygiene, poor sperm quality and female genital infections

A very important but neglected area for ergonomic development is the furniture around the pelvic area.

Also in physical therapy and metabolism rehabilitation, massage, etc. the pelvic area should be emphasized much more than is traditionally done.

For example, consider doing the following: use loose and well ventilated clothes, engage in repeated physical activity during the work day, make micro movements while sitting on an active seat, sit on a divided saddle chair, and have the sitting bones support the weight of the body, instead of the soft tissues.

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.
