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.

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.
