Do you sit on a regular office chair?
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".
- 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
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 the Salli Sway different?

Pressure matters .......
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.
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!
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!
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 .
I had several conversations regarding the product before decising to purchase. At no stage was I pressured in any way to purchase anything, and no matter how many questions it was not too much trouble.
Once I placed the order, it arrived in the time frames promised, and in good order. I have been using the chair since the day it arrived and I'm very happy with it.
