Many of us are not strangers to back, neck and shoulder pains. According to some statistics, as much as 80 percent of people suffer from some kind of back problems at some point in their lives. Many of us spend even 13 hours sitting every working day, and naturally the proper sitting position and the work chair play a major role in how we feel. Correct sitting has multiple effects on our well being.
The ergonomically designed seat of the Salli saddle chair directs your body automatically in the natural, health-promoting posture. Once you have achieved this, it is easy to work all day. The two-part seat is the only way of sitting that is beneficial to your health.
An upright and healthy sitting position affects the energy levels of your mind and body. In the Salli saddle chair, the upper and lower body rest freely. As a result of the good posture, the rib cage can expand freely, which deepens your breathing. Improved blood circulation reduces headaches. On the swinging seat, the muscles in your back and abdomen get a little workout during the day. You feel alert because of the increased oxygen intake and activeness.
On the Salli saddle chair, your body weight rests on the sitting bones. The lower back can therefore form a natural curve. The riding-like sitting position lets your back enjoy good posture without unnecessary muscle tension. As the load on the spine eases, the muscles in the neck and shoulder area can relax. The lower body forms a golden triangle: you are sitting on your sitting bones with your legs obliquely forward. On the Salli you are “sitting while standing”.
