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.
