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.

    Back feels better but my office desk is too low so use it intermittently

    Thanks for the review Joy. Sitting height is very important, as is your desk height. A height adjustable desk is preferable, but you can always raise your existing desk height with stack-its, bricks etc , or a desk converter to sit on top of the desk.

    This will make a big difference and allow you to use you Salli chair more effectively.

    Ergonomics matter

    After 25yrs I finally decided to upgrade to a saddle stool.....and what a difference the Salli stool has made to my posture. The team at Salli were very knowledgeable, informative and efficient and are a Melbourne-based, family owned business.

    Thanks for the great review Brendan. It's never too late!
