I have a regular chair but it does have adjustable arms and I LOVE it. I have suffered with upper back/shoulder/neck issues for 25 yrs now and it has helped. It takes the pressure off of the muscles that are hovering in the air for 30 minutes at a time. The body was not made for that.

I have heard they are very good for posture .. I have not seen one being used with arms for a hygienist

I recently purchased a kneeling chair & LOVE it. It really takes the pressure off the lower back & reduces tension there. I wish I would’ve known about this type of chair years ago!

My co-worker wanted a saddle chair and a company she talked to at our states recent annual convention is letting her try one for 30 days. You could check with your local sales rep and see if they offer a similar service.

I have the split saddle chair. If you currently have loupes they will not work due to the higher up you sit and the distance of your loupes will be too short. I work out of two chairs. One reason is I need a longer working distance with my loupes if I use the saddle and posture isn’t as great. Check out Posturedontics.com there is a section on how to choose chairs, loupes, lights etc…. I also need new loupes with a steep declination angle because my head is tilted too far forward. I had trouble before loupes and after since the declination angle and then short working distance when in saddle chair. Hope this helps.
