Press releases

Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit did well in Innovation 2015 competition, organized by Finnish Dental Society Apollonia. The competition was held for the first time, and Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit were among the three best innovations and received an honorary award.

Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit are two-part saddle chairs. Due to the unique gap in the seat the sitter can keep the back straight also during long operations and when they need to lean forward. Because of the gap there is no uncomfortable pressure on the genital area, and thus there is no need to round the back. The gap also makes the seat cool and well ventilated, which diminishes the risk of infections.

The dynamic seat of Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit follow the sitter’s movements, which is a huge benefit when reaching for instruments and leaning forward. The dentist and the dental nurse can work close to each other and get easily very close to the patient.

New competition: Innovation 2015

Innovation 2015 Honorary Award is given to a company or organization that has developed new, or utilized the existing technology, equipments or service in such a way that it improves the working conditions of dentists, the safety of the patients or makes the treatment/cure more durable, easier or better in some other way. The results of the the competition will be published in Hammaslääkäri Magazine on 13.11.2015.

 

 

Salli® Saddle Chairs – the active way of sitting

Sitting in a poor posture disturbs circulation and prevents the brain from getting enough oxygen. This makes us tired: working becomes inefficient and we make more mistakes. Also back pains are a universal problem, due to which millions of working days are lost annually all over the world. Fortunately Salli Systems has the answer to all these problems: the two-part saddle chair.

Safe sitting for both genders

Ergonomic and healthy sitting position is best achieved on the anatomically designed, two-part Salli Saddle Chair. Sitting on Salli maintains the lordose in the lower back, which relieves the harmful pressure on the disks. Because of the gap in the seat it is possible to keep the good posture throughout the day. There is no uncomfortable pressure in the genital area and thus no need to round the back. Sitting with the back rounded is a tremendous health risk for disks and vertebrae of the lower back.

Saddle chair and height-adjustable table are a match made in heaven

To make the most of the saddle chair, you also need a height-adjustable table, because you sit higher than on a traditional chair. Salli Systems also provides electronically adjustable tables. Standing for the whole day is too strenuous for muscles, but to vary between sitting and standing is an excellent choice.

Salli AutoSmart Table (see picture) is guided by an innovative software that enables the table and monitor heights to be individually set for each user, both in standing and sitting positions. After that the table and monitor heights will change automatically according to what you do: write or read text from the screen.

The dynamic seats of Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit adapt to your movement and help to keep the back straight. Movement also increases both blood and lymph circulation in the lower back, and strengthens the core muscles.

Welcome to Hall 9, stand D43, to meet us and try the original Salli Saddle Chairs! Our professional team will be happy to tell you the latest news on sitting health.

SALLI® Saddle Chairs – the active way to sit

In dental care the sitting position is the greatest health risk, because during long operations the position is unnatural and involves a lot of repetitive movements. Sitting in a bad position puts twice as much strain on the spine as standing.

More than a half of European dentists retire early because of various problems in their shoulders, neck and lower back. Almost everybody working in dentistry is affected by poor circulation in the lower extremities, shortage of oxygen, problems in hip, knee and shoulder joints, or genital health problems.

One chair for the whole day

On a two-part saddle chair the back is in the same position as when standing, and the lower back lordosis can be maintained. On one-part saddle chairs there is a lot of pressure on the genital area which makes people round their back. That position is a tremendous health risk for the disks and vertebrae in the lower back.

The joint-friendly 135 degree angle in the knees and between the thighs and the upper body means a diminished risk of arthritis. The circulation in the lower limbs is good, causing no swelling and varicose veins.

The active seat in Salli SwingFit and Salli Swing guarantee the wide hip angle even in positions where you need to lean forward. The weight of the upper body is always evenly divided on the seat because the seat adapts to your movements. It is also easy to activate core muscles on the active seat.

Working is easy

Because there are no arm or back rests it is easy to sit down and get up, and to reach for equipment. The chair rolls effortlessly and gets you near the patient; visibility into the patient’s mouth is good.

Come and meet the professional Salli team and test the original Salli at our stand A068 in hall 11.3. We will be happy to tell you the latest news on sitting health!

Salli® Saddle Chairs – your choice in preventing occupational health problems!

Lower back pain? Sore and tense muscles? Headaches and fatigue? Sitting on an unergonomic conventional chair often results in all these, whereas a good chair is also an investment in productivity – alert people are more productive and less likely to make mistakes.

Salli, the Finnish Saddle Chair, takes work comfort now to a new level. Our new, thicker padding and narrower seat guarantee comfortable sitting from the very beginning. Salli, with its various accessories that meet the needs and challenges of diverse work places and occupations, is the number one choice in creating a safe and healthy working environment.

Two-part seat makes Salli unique

Rounding the back is very dangerous to the health of the discs and vertebrae and can result in extremely painful conditions. Only on a two-part seat is it possible to sit in a good position for the whole day: because of the gap the chair does not press the genitals, and thus there is no need to round the back away from the uncomfortable pressure. This ingenious feature makes Salli superior when compared to other saddle chairs.

And let’s not forget the active and dynamic models Salli Swing and Salli SwingFit! The swinging seat follows your movements and help to keep the back straight even when bending forward. They also give exercise to the lower back and improve the blood and fluid circulation in the whole body.

Salli for special environments

  • Salli Stainless has all its metal parts made of stainless steel. Perfect for environments where furniture needs to be hygienic and easy to clean, e.g. food industry, bakeries, and laboratories.

Salli® Saddle Chairs keep your healthy and active!

Sitting in a poor posture disturbs circulation and prevents the brain from getting enough oxygen. This makes us tired: working becomes ineffecient and we make more mistakes. Also back pains are a universal problem, due to which millions of working days are lost annually all over the world.

Sitting in a slouched position damages the disks in the lower back and in the long run causes arthritis. In addition, every time we sit, the trousers tighten in the thigh, groin and genital area, which interferes with the sensitive lymphatic system and circulation.

Fortunately Salli Systems has the answer to all these problems: the two-part saddle chair.

Two-part Salli Saddle Chair: safe sitting for both genders

Ergonomic and healthy sitting position is best achieved on the anatomically designed, two-part Salli Saddle Chair. Sitting on Salli automatically creates lordose in the lower back, which relieves the harmful pressure on the disks. Because of the gap in the seat it is possible to maintain the good posture throughout the day. There is no uncomfortable pressure in the genital area and thus no need to round the back.

To make the most of the saddle chair, one also needs an adjustable table, because one sits higher on a saddle chair than on a traditional chair. Salli Systems also provides electrically adjustable tables (see Salli AutoSmart in the picture).

"Having an electronically height-adjustable table is a must if you are using a saddle chair. Sometimes it's nice to work standing up and then the table needs to be even higher. The two-part seat also eliminated pressure between the legs, which was clearly noticeable when I first tried a one-part seat.”

- Mr Arto Seppänen, Web Designer, Tampere, Finland

Salli® Saddle Chairs are the healthiest choice

Back pains are a universal problem also among dentists. Countless working days are lost annually not to mention the, and the monetary losses are enormous. Another, equally important issue is the genital health. Our modern way of living with sitting for hours and using tight trousers causes immense risks for one’s genital health.

As much as 40 % of 40-year-old men and 50 % of 50-year-old men suffer from occasional or chronic erectile dysfunctions. Almost all 60-year-old men have prostate overgrowth.

The pressure on the soft tissues inside the pelvic opening creates a pressure field. This pressure can irritate the organs inside the pelvis (bladder, prostate, colon and rectum) and predispose them to several severe illnesses, such as cancer. In addition, every time we sit, our trousers tighten in the thigh, groin and genital area, which interferes with the sensitive lymphatic system.

Fortunately Salli Systems has the answer to this problem: the two-part saddle chair.

Salli Systems’s latest innovation is to add a saddle chair seat into a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The result is the first ergonomic Harley in the world.

Tiina Roos, the Area Sales Manager of Salli Systems says that she also invests in ergonomics in her free time. During last winter her XLH Sportstrer 883 Hugger motorcycle went through changes and has now a brand new seat, the two-part Salli Twin. Tiina drives her bike weekly since early spring to late autumn.

– Because of the new seat my back doesn’t get tired even during long drives, since the sitting pressure is in the right place and the driving position is excellent. My driving position used to be worse, I sat with my back rounded and hands and feet too far in the front, she says.

The mix between Harley Davidson and a saddle chair seat was on exhibition in Tampere, Finland, in Hot Rod & Rock show in 28.-29.4.2012.

Salli AutoSmart is unquestionably the superior solution among all ergonomic tables worldwide. The table recognises what you are doing and adjusts itself automatically to the optimal height for each task, either reading on the monitor or typing. The height will also change slightly according to the time of day, because the length of the spine varies from morning to afternoon. And not only is the table moving, also the monitors adjust themselves for different tasks, with the help of a special mechanism.

Salli AutoSmart thinks for you

The human brain works best when the head is held up and straight forward, and the neck and shoulder muscles are relaxed. In this position the large blood vessels in the neck function without any disturbance – and it is exactly this position that can easily be achieved, and maintained for the whole day, by using Salli AutoSmart. The mechanism works both when you are sitting or standing in front of the table.

Everything happens automatically once the preliminary settings have been made. Several people can work on the same table, because the table adjusts itself according to the login into the operating system. A patent application for the automatic system has been made.

Salli AutoSmart is designed to work together with Salli Saddle Chairs. The concept is totally superior, because the best and natural sitting position can be achieved on Salli Saddle Chairs, and now also the neck, head and arms get to be in the optimal position with the help of the table.
