The main difference between an ergonomically designed stool and an office chair is that a stool will commonly not incorporate any kind of backrest. The idea is that by not having a backrest you will be more reliant on your own muscles to keep you in an upright position which in turn should increase the strength and endurance of the muscles around your trunk.

We have a range of ergonomic stools available but the key feature they have in common is the ability to be moved. Sitting on a saddle stool that moves may sound like hard work, but the reality is that the movements are very small and the body quickly adapts to the workload. One of the best ways to understand whether a particular saddle stool will suit you is to trial one in your own home or workplace.

Saddle stools are most commonly used by professionals who tend to have to get into fixed postures during their daily work tasks including dentists, doctors, podiatrists, physiotherapists, osteopaths, hairdressers, laboratory workers etc. In more recent years there has been a growing demand from other types of professional users as they learn the benefits of using a saddle stool. These professionals include: IT workers, artists, general office workers etc. Some seats can allow you to sit in a much higher sitting position which has led to them becoming increasingly popular for reception staff and people who work on checkouts etc.
Ergonomic Stool Top Tip:
If you are used to sitting on a standard office chair, your new saddle stool may require a period of adjustment over a number of days. This adjustment period is necessary, simply because the new sitting position will change the way your joints and soft tissue are aligned and the way your postural muscles are working.
