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.

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.
5/5
