Based on the same principles as an equestrian saddle, the saddle seat, or saddle chair, is mounted on an adjustable gas lift, which in turn is mounted on a chair base with castors, to assist with unrestricted movement whilst in the seated position.

Saddle chairs are typically set around 25-30cm higher than a standard chair, which places the hip joints of the user in to a 135° angle, compared to an angle of 90°, which is typically associated with sitting on a traditional chair.

For added comfort during prolonged periods of sitting, the saddle chair can also be specified with a choice of three backrests, for added support. The saddle seat mechanism enables adjustment of the seat angle, plus backrest tilt, together with backrest height, (where fitted).

The saddle chair can also cope with a variety of floor surfaces within the work environment, by selection of castors suited to either hard of soft flooring. A range of stools are also available for those needing the manoeuvrability of a saddle chair, but who prefer a flat seat pad.
