Why a Saddle Seat?

By opening the pelvis and lowering the knees in relation to the hips, the disc pressure in the lumbar region of the spine is reduced by up to 35% when compared to sitting in the traditional 90 degree trunk-thigh angle position. This means the weight and compressive force of the upper body is distributed through the seat and the legs and reduces muscular strain normally required to maintain the body in an upright position. Further, by reducing the pressure in the lumbar discs, the blood flow to these discs is improved which promotes healthier intervertebral discs. 

Comfort & Adjustment

Recommended by physiotherapists, the Saddle Chair with its moulded PU foam seat provides superb support and comfort throughout the working day. Ideally suited to dentists, doctors, surgeons, and hairdressers...in fact the Saddle chair is suitable for EVERYONE!

All our SADDLE STOOLS are fitted with SEAT-TILT and HEIGHT adjustment swivel mechanisms, while the SADDLE CHAIRS offer an additional BACKREST angle and height adjustment. Simply put, the Saddle Range can easily be configured to suit most users.  

Improve posture

Poor posture is often caused by working environments that do not support proper spinal alignment, or do not fit the individual's needs. This in turn leads to back pain which further discourages good posture and makes the idea of sitting comfortably unbearable for many people. The SADDLE chair allows the angle between the trunk and thighs to be increased to ensure proper spinal alignment with minimal pressure on the lumbar intervertebral discs. This greatly reduces back pain associated with sitting, and as such, correct posture may be maintained.

Improved internal organs activity

Opening the pelvis not only enables correct spinal alignment and posture when sitting, it also improves breathing, circulation and digestion. By re-positioning the shoulders and pulling the chest up and out, proper diaphragm breathing is encouraged and less pressure is put on the heart resulting in better blood circulation. Furthermore, digestion is improved as the internal organs of the abdomen experience less compressive pressure when the pelvis is in this open position.

Improved Concentration and Performance

It is generally acknowledged that a poor seated posture may lead to fatigue, loss of productivity, headaches, aggravation of existing injuries and back problems. By improving posture, spinal alignment and maintaining comfort, saddle chairs encourage concentration and performance throughout the working day.

Increased core strength

Continued use of a Saddle chair increases muscle strength in the abdominals and back.
