The Salli Sway features the same split seat design, and a built-in rocking mechanism that allows you to shift your weight slightly in any direction. The sway mechanism allows you to shift positions and take your seat with you, reducing the chance of building pressure spots.
Like all saddle chairs, the Salli Sway encourages a more open angle of sitting which prevents the posterior "roll" of the hips created in more traditional seating styles. This forward press of the hips allows the spine to fall in a more natural "S" position. With the spine, hips, and legs, in an anatomically correct posture, the body is allowed to move freely with reduced strain on the muscles of the back, neck, shoulders, and arms. Increased circulation and decreased fatigue can lead to improved awareness and higher productivity.
Features of the Salli Sway
The rocking mechanism enables the seat to freely and continuously tilt or 'rock' on the left-right and front-back axis (and all angles in combination) in response to the movements of the user without any adjustments to the chair. This stimulates muscles in the abdominal and pelvic area, realizing benefits for the user similar to those which can be obtained through use of an exercise ball. It also adds to the mobility and metabolism of the lower back while still getting appropriate support from the split saddle seat design and maintaining the natural curvature of the spine. The width of the two halves of the saddle seat are fixed and cannot adjust but the design accommodates the body types of most individuals. If an individual has very muscular or thick thighs, or minimal soft tissue (i.e. slight frame and below average weight), they may want to consider the Salli SwingFit.
Height adjustment of the gas spring lift is accomplished through a standard hand-controlled height adjustment lever. Available lift sizes and the corresponding heights they accommodate are as follows: Short (4'0" to 5'2"), Mid (5'1" to 6'1") and Tall (5'8" to 6'5"). The 5-star base and lift are in an attractive chrome finish. The total weight of the chair is 10 kg (22 lb), the seat is 7.5 kg (16.5 lb) and is available in either black leather or black polyurethane (synthetic leather).
