This guide has been written to help you decide which is the best saddle stool for your work environment. We'll help you decide on the best saddle stool for you while also looking at the benefits of each model – allowing you to choose the best saddle stool for your situation!
Why use a saddle stool?Having the right seating conditions for you and your work environment can help you to maintain your posture, performance and enable you to work pain-free throughout your work day!
A saddle stool is designed to encourage a more ergonomic posture to be maintained throughout the day by the user. It does this through adjusting the amount the legs are “opened”, and by tilting the pelvis forward to assist in maintaining a healthy lumbar curvature.
They’re often used by health professionals such as, dentists and podiatrists, however their use is becoming more and more common as their benefits become better understood by the wider community. The recent surge in people being able to work from home has spiked the occurrence of neck and back pain associated with ergonomically poor working environments as employees work from their kitchen table or local café.
When you’re going to be seated for long periods of time (such as a work day for those with a desk job) it is important to consider the ergonomics of your work environment.
Best saddle stool – Saddle Stool with Backrest
the most important aspects that you need to get right when selecting the best saddle stool for you.
Our Saddle Stool with Backrest features both height and tilt angle adjustment, allowing you to find the perfect ergonomic combination for your body’s structure. This is easily achieved via the single touch gas strut adjustment lever and features 20cm of adjustable height.
For those working longer hours, or not alternating between a seated/standing position too frequently, the addition of the backrest on this saddle chair is an important feature. It allows the user to utilise the additional lumbar support from time-to-time to allow your back muscles to rest and recover throughout the day.
Best mid-range saddle stool - Premium Saddle Stool
This model is best suited for users who are frequently moving from seated to standing positions throughout the day. It is slightly more economic compared to the Saddle Stool with Backrest; however, it doesn’t feature the backrest.
This stool features a single touch gas strut for height adjustment and a foot ring to allow the user to utilise a wider range of foot/leg positions throughout the day.
Its 5-point base features twin castors, giving a balanced and stable weight distribution and an ultra-smooth rolling motion.

It also features a single touch gas strut that allows for 14cm of height adjustment, however, it doesn’t have the foot ring or backrest that the more premium models have.
