Sitting Ergonomics

Sitting should disturb the natural vital functions of the human body as little as possible. Balanced sitting is based on the right (upright) position of the pelvis that is supported by the sitting bones and not by the soft tissues (such as muscles, ligaments, fat, connective tissues, blood vessels, nerves, and skin). This will result in a good back posture and in free movement of the limbs and the back.

Long-term sitting is always harmful to the body. These harmful effects can be minimized by sitting in such a way thatergonomics.jpg

  • the upper body is free; posture is good and tension-free
  • upper and lower limbs are free to move
  • thighs are pointing approximately 45 degrees downwards from the horizontal level, and the pelvis is straight
  • sitting is supported by the bones in the feet, pelvis and elbows
  • the genitals are not under any pressure

The immobility involved in sitting work can be reduced by walking or stretching during phone conversations. Part of the working day can be spend standing, and on the active seats it is possible to activate the muscles in the lower back and pelvis.

Riding-like sitting in a quality saddle chair, in front of a rightly adjusted table, will cause the minimum amount of sitting-related ailments.

    Great purchase

    Amazing purchase, great customer service, quick delivery time and answered all my questions. I'm surprised at how great the wheels slide on the floor and how much better my posture is.

    Thanks Stephanie, glad you are loving it.
    My spine thanks you

    I am really feeling the benefits of the seat. I have stuffed neck and shoulder problems for years and am feeling that I am gaining benefit from sitting better at my office virtually every day. I highly recommend this chair to anyone who works at a desk but don't wait until you are desperate. Do it before the troubles start!

    Thanks for the great review Kristine. Yes - you are absolutely correct, prevention is better than cure.
    A stunning product

    From the first point of contact through to delivery of the chair, your service and communication was amazing. Nothing was too much bother and the quality of the chair is everything that was promised. Now looking forward to becoming very good friends with my Saddle Seat. I am expecting this to take time while the body adjusts to a new way of sitting but already I can feel my back re-aligning while working at my desk. Thank you for a wonderful product.

    Thanks Jeni, it will keep getter better and better!
    Everything I hoped for!

    I am a remedial massage therapist and needed a chair that moved quietly over a hard floor without the normal clatter of plastic castors. I purchased my Salli chair with the optional inline castors which are whisper quiet and glide effortlessly. I also upgraded to a comfy red leather seat which makes the chair look fast even when it isn’t moving! Customer service was sensational. Excellent buying experience. Highly recommend Salli chairs.

    Thanks for the great review Gary - keep on rollin' !
