By sitting on a saddle chair like the Salli chair, I avoid problems between the shoulder blades, in the lumbar spine and suffering from buffalo hump. I feel that I get a good posture in the body as the chair is designed as it is. With the ergonomically designed two-part seat, the pelvis can be rotated slightly forward, as in standing, which means that my back retains its natural curve and the head falls into a straight vertical line with the back, hip and heel, when seen from the side. In other words, just as an ergonomic work chair should be.

I had the opportunity to test Salli Swing at Sjukgymnastdagarna in Göteborg, Sweden. I thought that I was already sitting right, but because I sit so much in my work I was ready to try changing my office chair to Salli Swing. I used to have a 12 years old traditional office chair that had a lot of adjustments to make sitting ergonomic and good, but I don’t always live like I preach as a physiotherapist. I often sat in a bad position, which resulted in a tired lower back and affected the wellbeing of my whole body.
Now that I’m using Salli Swing I seem to be more active while sitting. There was a certain adjustment period in the beginning, but now it feels all right. My back feels better and I have started using my height-adjustable table more, and even work standing at times. I vary positions between sitting and standing, thanks to the new chair.
I can really recommend this chair.
