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.

    Seat covers and wheels

    My Salli chair looks so much better now with its new seat covers. Very easy to replace and the roller blade wheels mean I can zoom around so quickly. I wouldn't be without my Salli chair.

    Salli Saddle seat chair

    Very happy with this saddle chair that I purchased for my 13 year old grand daughter. The help and advice I got from David was amazing. Thoroughly recommend buying from this company.

    Fantastic and you are welcome Heather. Your granddaughter is off to a great start and can now sit healthily for the rest of her life. The benefits over her lifetime will be huge!
    Works a treat

    The Salli Swayfit is everything it promises to be & slips completely under the desk if I choose to stand at the computer.
    The sway active sitting mechanism works a treat & I now sleep without back pain.

    Fantastic to hear John! It sounds like you are using Salli exactly as it is intended when using a desk and are therefore getting great results.

    The missing link for performance and creativity?

    As a professional Musician and Recording Studio owner, I aspire to utilise the best tools in order to develop my skills and capture the best performances. I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on equipment to help me be the best I can be, however I never realised the importance of seating in the equation till I was introduced to the Salli Chair. I am sold. This seating system is incredible and besides the obvious health benefits it helps in my performance and dare I say it creativity.
    Thank you David and Team, the world needs to be exposed to this incredible invention.”

    Thanks so much for the incredible review. Keep on rockin!
