Get stronger on a saddle seat

All of us at Back Designs use a saddle-seat as our primary work chair, both in the office and in the factory. Why? Because we feel better and work better in a saddle.

The riding-style open hip posture relieves back pain, improves leg circulation, aids deeper breathing, and trains balance and strength. Saddle sitting also helps us reach and bend with less strain.

Extra tall and deep customizable backrest designed to stand up to heavy use. Visco-elastic memory foam in the seat and back eases pressure points.

Your body follows your eyes.

In this case, poor sitting posture is caused by a desk that is too low. Before you blame your chair for your poor posture, make sure your desk is at the correct height.

Do you really need a new chair?

Look again at your desk height and the placement of your computer, papers, and keyboard. If your hand tasks and visual target are in the wrong place you can suffer from bad posture even in the best chair.

Writing platforms
Poor placement of paperwork can ruin your posture even with the best ergonomic chair. The ideal writing angle is somewhere between 10° and 20°.
Active ergonomic seating solutions
An ergonomic task chair must provide different support for forward, upright, and reclined sitting postures. It must also be sized properly for your body type. The perfect office chair for a 6'2" computer programmer is unlikely to suit a 5'5" dentist.
Back supports & seat cushions
Portable back supports improve sitting comfort and posture in chairs, sofas, recliners, car seats, and beds. They can redefine seat height and angle or backrest contour and resilience to improve seating ergonomics.
