Swayfit vs Salli Dental - what is the difference?

Not a lot - mainly the materials used.

The Salli Dental has all the same adjustments as the hugely popular Swayfit model, including height, width and active sitting

What we have done is chosen all the materials and components available to us to make the ultimate chair for dental and healthcare practitioners.

Scroll down to see a video of Salli in dental use.

We use Ultrafabrics

Ultrafabrics Ultraleather is used by many of the worlds largest dental unit manufacturers. Features include:
  • Enduring performance (14+ weeks hydrolysis results)
  • Engineered to out-perform the highest levels of abrasion resistance
  • Ease of care
  • GREENGUARD Gold Certification
  • Meets Healthier Hospitals Safer Chemical Challenge, V2.0
Inline castors
Redefining smooth!
Optional inline castors offer an incredibly smooth ride allowing unmatched manoeuvrability. Also great for your hard floor.
Plastic base
Even quieter operation
We include the plastic base as standard as it reduces any castor rattle, making the Salli Dental even smoother! We can of course supply any base you prefer.
3 gas spring sizes
Critical for performance
As with all Salli chairs a range of gas spring sizes are available and recommend based on your height. Talk to us on 1300 048 112 for more info.

Why should I sit on a Salli for dental work?

Do you sit on a regular dental chair?

Many dentists choose the chair they sit on for many hours a day because it is the one that came with their dental unit, or they got a good deal, or, the colour matched nicely.

These are obviously some valid considerations - however, more than likely they will not produce the healthy sitting environment such demanding work requires.

Despite many of these chairs being labeled ergonomic, with such a large percentage of dental practitioners having back, neck and shoulder issues - clearly they are not!

"I don't need a saddle chair, my back is fine"

Ummm, yeah ok. You know prevention is better than cure right? Dentists have one of the highest rates of back pain and injury in the medical industry, but many fail to take preventative measures until it's too late.

This video shows the difference between working on a regular dental chair and a saddle chair - one word - ouch!

So what makes the Salli different?

This video is worth a watch.

The main thing to notice is how easy it is to maintain perfect posture. Salli saddle stools help you achieve the very desirable neutral spine position without being forced.

Pressure matters .......

The pressure caused by sitting on conventional chairs disturbs the pelvis, tailbone, pelvic floor and genital area. It is believed to increase intestinal and internal pelvic health problems and erectile dysfunctions.

On a conventional chair men tend to lean backwards in order to avoid the pressure in the genital area. This means the back is not straight, which results in back problems.

On a one-part saddle chair the pressure on the pelvic opening is even stronger. We automatically try to avoid it by tilting the pelvis backwards, and as a result we slouch. If one already has back pain and it is too painful to slouch, the result is a numbed genital area due to the pressure imposed on it.

When sitting on a two-part saddle chair, the pressure is on the sitting bones. As a result there is less pressure on soft tissues and that is why we can sit more comfortably, in a balanced position. Circulation also remains undisturbed.

What is active sitting?

This is how the Sway gets its name!

Active seating is a rocking mechanism that enables the saddle seat to be tilted in every direction without a separate adjustment lever. It functions in much the same way as a proprioceptor board is used for retraining/rehabilitation of the ankles after strain or injury.

Traditional saddle seats lock the pelvis in the seated position, whereas the Salli Sway enables 360 degree pelvic movement, and as your centre of weight changes with natural movement, it encourages the muscles in the lower back improving tone and strength; reducing back pain and sitting fatigue.

Some other health benefits

Eases shoulder pain
On Salli you sit like on a horse. The chair directs your body automatically in the natural position, provided that the height of the chair is correctly adjusted. Using the Salli saddle chair together with a height adjustable table helps the neck and shoulder area to relax.

Diminishes the risk of joint problems
The optimum sitting position on a saddle chair creates a 135-degree angle between the thighs and the upper body. According to several international studies, this is the only healthy way to sit because it improves circulation in the hip and knee joints.

Speeds up metabolism
When we sit in a slouched position, the intestines get pressed between the hip and the upper body which slows down bowel movements. It is difficult to slouch on a Salli!

Helps rehabilitate the pelvic floor muscles
Lots of middle-aged women have problems with their pelvic floor muscles. Sitting on a Salli Sway activates those muscles effectively.

So why buy a Salli Saddle seat?

Salli Systems have been producing saddle chairs since 1990

Research and development is critical to Salli so they can continue to create not only great quality products with materials designed to last (like a 3mm thick steel seat base), but also products that have GENUINE health benefits. There is science involved!

It is also vitally important to get a saddles chair to fit you, that's what we are happy to advise you, so please contact us! It' what we are here for.

Do you really think a $99 hairdressers saddle chair is going to be good for you? These contraptions can often do more harm than good ....

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 Frankenbomber
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.
