SpineSaver Series Saddle Chairs



 
Alternative Views:


Our SpineSaver Saddle Chair series provides optimal support for users that employ varied working postures from fully seated through partially standing up to fully standing. It promotes a more open seating angle allowing the user's lumbar curve to be fully engaged and provide the shock absorbing benefits to the body that it is capable of. The user can derive great benefits in the fully standing posture as it allows the user to distribute some of the body’s weight load from the feet and legs and allow for more comfortable standing posture sessions. The “partially standing” posture as shown below in the "Five Reference Postures" is particularly valuable as it allows an existing workstation to be converted into a partially standing - friendly work centre with easily accomplished and relatively economical retrofits for keyboard/mouse and monitor (Cobra keyboard arm and Advantage series monitor arm can be ideal here). The user need not retrofit the station to a full standing height to enjoy many of the same healthful benefits that the standing worker enjoys. This allows for a more cost effective retrofit for the employer while still providing the worker with expanded posture choice.
