Humanscale Saddle Seat with Lumber Support

Description:

The Saddle seat, part of Humanscale’s award-winning Freedom seating line, is the most comfortable and versatile stool ever made. Its unique, triangular cushion encourages users to sit in a ”saddle” posture, which lowers the thighs, opens up the hips and puts the spine into a healthy lordotic curve.

 

The ”saddle” posture also reduces pressure points for long-term comfort and allows users to get closer to their work. It’s simply one of the most comfortable and healthy ways to sit.

 

The Freedom Saddle is equally at home in an office, lab or industrial setting, and its multi-use cushion can accommodate the many sitting positions required for countless applications. Whether it’s used all day long or tucked under a desk for impromptu meetings, the Saddle offers a unique and comfortable seating solution unmatched by any other stool.

 

 

    Features:

  • Uniquely contoured triangular cushion allows multiple sitting positions for ultimate comfort

  • Height adjustable pneumatic cylinder accommodates a wide range of users and tasks.

  • Optional foot ring and high cylinders for specific applications.

  • Available in a wide variety of textiles, including wipeable vinyls for lab, cleanroom and healthcare use.

 

Kyphosis:

Increased Disc Pressure
When we sit in a 90 degree posture without lumbar support, the pelvis rotates backwards and the lumbar curve flattens.

 

 

Lordosis:

Decreased Disc Pressure
Increasing the angle between the thigh and torso allows the pelvis to rotate forward, which helps
maintain the natural curvature of the lower back.

Option 3: Choose your Seat Textile:

The cushions on all Humanscale chairs utilize advanced technology developed primarily for the sportswear and sporting goods industries. In a single step, a high-tech molding process combines the textile, foam or Technogel and plastic support shell into a single, modular unit which can be attached to our seating with four screws. Because of this advanced process, the textiles used on the cushions are as unique as the rest of the chair, and satisfy requirements more demanding than typical upholstery textiles.
