Saddle Seats sold by www.correctbreathing.com
Saddle seats, while expensive, offer something no other chair can.
- Saddle-sitting soothes back, neck, hip, and arm pain.
The strongly declining position of the upper legs rotates the pelvis forward and curves the lower back into an anatomically correct position of lordosis. This in turn straightens the upper back, leading to a generally improved back posture and reduced tension in the upper back, shoulder girdle, and neck muscles.
- Saddle-sitting strengthens the back and improves your posture.
This new sitting stance stimulates and strengthens the back, abdominal, and buttock muscles. Your posture will gradually correct itself as your muscles respond to the new posture.
- Saddle-sitting improves leg circulation and reduces foot swelling.
There is no edge to press against your upper leg, and your buttocks and leg muscles are free of contact pressure. The veins and arteries that carry blood to and from your legs are in their most open position. With the angles between upper and lower legs being much wider than usual and the active use of your legs accelerating your metabolism, your legs will really feel much better.
- Saddle-sitting improves balance.
The spread of the legs, called hip abduction, stabilizes the pelvis in an upright orientation, so you can relax. And your wide foot stance keeps you balanced when you move about. Balance is so dramatically improved, that many people with neurological impairments who topple out of conventional chairs, sit independently in a saddle seat.
