This chair rocks!

Saddle chairs help maintain the natural shape of the spine during sitting and working. The movable seat on the Salli Swing adjusts to the movements of the body. Even small movements will stimulate muscles in the abdominal and pelvic area, similar to sitting on a gym ball. Rocking seat mechanism tilts in every direction without a separate adjustment lever.


  • Anatomical split-saddle with center gap.
  • Responsive 360° free-float saddle movement.
  • Heavy-duty 3 mm steel seat plate.
  • Professional quality CA TB117 and CA TB133 upholstery options for demanding commercial and clinical applications.
  • Premium aluminum chair base.
  • Large 65mm casters for easy maneuverability.
  • 4 seat height options for short, average, and tall users.
  • 260 lb. weight capacity.
  • 23 lbs.
  • 10-year warranty.
  • Made in Finland and USA.

Salli "swing" vs. "tilt"

  • Swing: Salli saddle chairs with fluid seat motion are suitable for most folks of average build. Unfortuantely, the swing motion often does not work for those with anatomical characteristics at the ends of the bell curve (e.g., petite, big, generous hips or thighs, etc.). In those cases the user’s body weight may not not center over the axis of motion under the seat, which interferes with the seat’s ability to follow the body’s movement. The end result can be poor body postures.
  • Tilt: Tilt mechanisms offer greater range of movement in a forward/backward tilt direction than is available in a Swing mechanism. For this reason, Salli saddle chairs with manual seat tilt adjustment can accommodate the needs of almost any body type.
  • There is no research to indicate whether "swing" or "tilt" saddle motion is superior from a health or task perspective. The physiology of conventional sitting is quite different from the "supported standing" posture one assumes on a saddle stool. We don't yet know whether the research related to seated movement applies in the same way to the high perch straddle posture one assumes on a saddle stool.
  • Some Salli's with swing motion can be converted to a Salli with manual tilt and vice versa, by replacing the adjustment mechanism under the seat. Please contact us for details.

Nothing else will do now...
After decades of regular office chairs/stools I really felt every bit of my age. Lower back always giving me trouble etc. After 6 months using the Salli, I would absolutely not consider going back to a regular chair. It was a bit odd initially, I had been on horseback once in my entire life so a saddle was entirely foreign to me. I did have to think and adjust a bit here and there the first several weeks on the Salli. There are good instructions and videos but it was obviously helpful from the very beginning. I got this one for backup in case mine was.... ummm... borrowed or misplaced. Though that has not happened (tall cylinder too high for most coworkers and they think it looks weird... nobody borrows it when I'm not on shift). I am really glad to have this for backup though just in case. Didn't like the prospect of waiting for replacement or repair parts if something happened. It's built solid though and friction on the tilt adjusts if movement is disconcerting initially.

didn’t know I NEEDED this...
Purchased Strong for RN w/bad ankle, sat unused a few days. Stand on good ankle & swing bad over back of chair took practice, then acclimated fast to remaining adjustments. Relief to ankle immense, used 50% of day immediately. After unexpected use of Strong while he wasn’t using, I could not go back, I chose Swing. RN chose Strong thinking less moving parts best & higher weight rated, was envious of Swing, didn’t realize resistance re: swing action adjustable. Strong doesn’t have adjustable width, he adjusted tilt & lowered saddle just a tad to put a little more weight on feet & good to go. After he was accustomed to everything wanted faster? rollerblade type wheels. This has changed his life... he noticed back & knees felt better too. After 2 weeks of using my Swing, happy spine, no locked knees/stiff ankles from sitting too long at desk. I can’t say enough good things about this, wish I’d had it long ago. RN has had Strong for a month, requested Swing for other location

Good quality but painful chair
I've been using this chair for 1 year 3 months - read training my bottom to survive it. It has been good at strengthening my back and my bottom. It did some good (maybe) to my hips. But it is not comfortable, far from it. The swing feature is utterly useless: it makes the chair tilt to an unwanted and more uncomfortable angle. It sure encourages me to not sit for very long at a time, so that's a plus. The chair is of good quality.
