Saddle stool

I’m thinking about investing in one of the saddle stool chairs. Has anyone loved it? Hated it? Thoughts please! 🙂

You need to have strong core muscles or you may end up slouching. I have the salli split seat with short base. I switch between the saddle and regular chair. If you have loupes……I’ve said this in many other ergonomic posts about the working distance measured for your loupes may be too short when using the saddle because it was originally measured using a regular clinic chair. The saddle will sit you up taller and the loupes will be out of focus because you are further away and naturally you will move your neck and head closer to the patient for the loupes to come into focus. FYI!!!

We have been ‘trying’ one out in our office. One hygienist had it this entire week and loves it. Said it greatly improved her posture. I’m trying it next week. Check with your local rep to see if he can get you one to try.

When I moved to my current office 10 years ago, I had been practicing for 28 years and my back and neck were pretty much done. I really didn’t know how much longer I could keep this up. All of their operatories had Salli Saddle chairs, which I had not seen before. I immediately fell in love! The saddle rotates the pelvis into a position that makes it difficult to slouch and I’ve never been so comfortable. I’m still at it 10 years later and I know that would not have been possible without the it. I only wish I’d had it all along. I have no plans to leave this office, but if I did, I would definitely invest in one. My Dr. uses the split seat for men, which I find uncomfortable when I have to work out of his room. I have the full seat and love, love it. They are expensive, and there are imitations, one of which I used when I subbed in another office and I found it too hard, so don’t be tempted to go cheap. Try ebay and stick with Salli brand.

I just asked our dental products provider if he could get one in the office for me to try. He will dropping it off next week.. I am wondering if anyone knows of a specific manufacturer that is easier to work with or better quality? Thanks
