Saddle Chairs Range and Saddle Stools Selection
The ergonomic benefits of a saddle chair have been recognised for some time, particularly with dentists, hospital workers and even art studios. The user adopts an equestrian stance, sitting astride the seat with a leg to torso angle approaching 135 degrees and sitting at a higher level than a regular office chair. This will rotate the pelvis forward, promoting an upright posture whilst maintaining the lumbar curve.
With correct alignment of the spine, tension in the upper back, shoulders and neck will be reduced whilst stimulating and strengthening the back and abdominal muscles. Hip abduction or the spread of the legs creates a stable working position, beneficial for those performing a manual task which can involve leaning forward and swivelling to the side. Weight is taken by the sitting bones and the absence of a seat edge prevents discomfort under the thighs and has further benefits to circulation and digestion.
