Using Salli

On a saddle chair you sit 20–40 cm higher than on a traditional chair. Before you sit down, make sure that the chair is not too high. To lower the seat lift up the lever and at the same time press down the seat by your elbow or stomach. Stand beside the chair and lift one foot up over the back of the chair to the other side and sit down. Do not sit down on Salli the traditional way, so that the chair is behind you, to avoid the chair rolling away from you.

Table height

The standard table height is about 72 cm, but with Salli Saddle Chairs the table needs to be more than 80 cm high. We recommend an electronically adjustable table.

When you sit at the correct height, the optimal table height will be approximately at the height of your elbows, when the elbows are in a 90 degree angle. Your elbows should be relaxed and rest on pads, with your arms at the sides of your body. A table that is too high or too low can cause back, shoulder and neck problems.

Have a break!

Even though you can sit on Salli the whole work day, remember to have breaks. Make use of the moving seats of Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit and rotate your pelvis, reach and bend, to get good exercise for your core muscles and to activate the circulation of the back. If possible, work also standing during the day.

    Salli Pro is the real deal! Excellent choice worth every dollar

    I'm pretty blown away by this product and the customer service that Salli Australia has provided.

    I used to have sharp pain in my dominant shoulder and wrist and a persistent backache after hunching over in long editing sessions at the computer. I researched everything from ergonomic gamer chairs to kneeling chairs and finally arrived at the saddle chairs from Salli.

    I was a little hesitant to make the investment but made an appointment to test out the chairs anyway. David walked me through the different models and options and really patiently answered all my questions (which were A LOT). I ended up purchasing the Salli Pro with rollerblade rubber wheels for hardwood floors on the spot. (I'm 161cm and 50kg and could have gone for the Salli Pro Small, but felt the Pro was a bit more comfortable.)

    As advised, I eased into using the chair at home, and it took just a couple of days to get used to it. I just want to say there’s no turning back to regular chairs for me now. I have NO PAIN in my shoulders and find myself wanting to sit on it all the time. I highly recommend this chair to anyone who is chair-bound for most of the day. Thank you, David and the Salli Australia team!

    Prompt and efficient service thank you

    Useful for my spinal injury

    I have very specific spinal requirements due to an injury. The Salli Pro gives me the granular adjustments I need.

    Change the way you sit

    The saddle chair has me sitting upright again. You sit on your sitting bones and your spine is naturally straight. Now it does take some getting used to, so two of us share it and swap each hour or so to begin with but I can sit on it for half a day within the first few weeks. The chairs are incredibly well made and robust.
