    Why should I use a Salli saddle chair?

    So you are currently sitting on your regular work chair, dental stool, or even at home and wondering why you have this lingering dull or stabbing pain in your lower back, and/or perhaps stiff shoulders and neck. You just know it is going to hurt when you go to stand up and you are dreading the thought.

    Perhaps you are standing at your new sit-stand desk wondering how you are going to stand up all day to be healthy! (because that's the current thing right?). 

    Your legs get tired, your hips get sore from leaning when you shouldn’t, and then you have to sit in that chair again that made you want to stand up in the first place!

    So meet the classic "ergonomic sitting guy".

    You have all seen these types of images before.
    • sit with 90 degree angles at knees and back/torso
    • push backrest into back
    • adjust lumbar support, seat pan depth, seat height, armrest width, armrest height etc etc
    Can you sit all day forced into this position? No. This is how you might start the day, but not how you finish. The number of people we see with back pain caused by these "ergonomic" chairs is astounding. There are no formal guidelines for use of the word ergonomic - it pretty much just means adjustable (or please buy me because I am ergonomic, right, it must be good for me?)

    The fact is your pelvis will still be rotated back, putting strain on your lower back, and subsequently your discs, leading to bulges, prolapses and acute pain.

    So what makes Salli different?

    This video below 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 and what does it do?

    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.

    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 ....

    Everything I hoped for!

    I am a remedial massage therapist and needed a chair that moved quietly over a hard floor without the normal clatter of plastic castors. I purchased my Salli chair with the optional inline castors which are whisper quiet and glide effortlessly. I also upgraded to a comfy red leather seat which makes the chair look fast even when it isn’t moving! Customer service was sensational. Excellent buying experience. Highly recommend Salli chairs.

    Thanks for the great review Gary - keep on rollin' !
    Great quality

    I love this chair, I’m a tattooist and was struggling with lower back pain really badly for years. I’ve been using this chair for a few months now and it’s amazing the difference it’s made to my posture, I don’t get any pain at all anymore. I cannot recommend it enough,

    Fantastic to hear! Thanks for the great review.
    Rollerblade/Inline style castors

    awesome, got product straight away and they are great to use, had no problems with them at all

    Excellent!
    A long awaited solution

    I have tried various other options over time but the Salli Swayfit Saddle Seat has provided me with an active, ergonomic and comfortable solution to the hours I spend at my desk. After initial adjustment period my body has adapted and embraced my new way of working, alternating between sitting on Salli and standing. Thankyou for a beautifully crafted and clever solution

    Thanks so much for the great review! It sounds like you are using Salli perfectly and in return it is treating you well :)

    Love my salli saddle chair so comfortable 🥰

    Awesome!
