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.

Excellent service

David was very helpful throughout the whole process

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.
