The Salli Swayfit is the healthiest, most adjustable, and most comfortable saddle chair available.

Sway vs Swayfit - difference?

Width adjustment on all "fit" models!

That's the main difference - but a big one allowing more personalisation.

Ever since we started selling the Salli Sway in Australia we would always get the question - can you adjust the width? Well, yes, now you can!

This allows a one size fits all seat for those with narrower pelvises and also those that find the standard Sway width a bit too much.


Why should I sit on a Salli?

Do you sit on a regular office 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 the Salli Swayfit 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 ....

Great seat

I’m so happy I upgraded wheels and leather. Rolls like a dream. Comfortable to sit on and work from. I was worried it would take a while to break in but haven’t had any issues

You can't go past leather for a bit of luxury and those wheels, yep, they are fantastically smooth! Thanks for the great review and keep on 'Sitting Happy'!

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!

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.
