Using your Salli in Dental Care

  1. Adjusting the height of the chair: Lift the chair up, by using handle, so high that your feet cannot reach the floor. Let your pelvis relax and your thighs hang freely and stretch for a minute. Then lower the chair so that your feet rest firmly on the floor, and there is a 135 degree angle in your hip and knee joints.
  2. Adjust the patient chair to a correct height so that your hands are 25 degrees up from the horizontal level. This way both you and the dental assistant can keep your feet under the patient chair and you do not need to bend your neck so much to see clearly.
  3. Make sure you have positioned your feet on your sides rather than in front of you. This way your hip tilts forward and your back straightens automatically.
  4. Pull in your chin, rotate your eyes to look down and finally bend your neck. This way you will save your neck from getting strained.
  5. Make sure the light is coming from the same direction into which you are looking to avoid shadow.
  6. Place the foot pedal close to your foot. Don’t try to reach for it. This can cause problems to your hip and/or back. Try to use the foot pedal with your heel, if possible.
  7. Use clothes that are loose and in which you can move freely (pants and wide skirts). Tight skirts cannot be used with Salli.
  8. Vary your working angle around the patient’s head. Also work in a standing position every now and then if possible.

Important!

In the beginning the seat may feel a bit hard on your sitting bone area. The reason is that on Salli seats the pressure is guided away from soft tissues and the pelvic opening, and it is on the bone structures instead. So the pressure is on the sitting bones. You will get used to it, be patient!

If the chair feels wide, or your lower back gets tired, your feet are probably in front of you. Try moving your feet towards your sides. This is the easiest way to have your upper body in the same, relaxed position as when standing.

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.
