Transition to Salli

As with a lot of other types of furniture, it can take some time to fully adjust to a Salli stool (customers report that it can take 3-21 days to get used to the new sitting position). During this period clients often report saddle soreness, aching in the thighs and slight back ache. This transition period is most likely necessary because the body is getting used to the joints and soft tissues being in a completely different position. In order to help with this adjustment period, we suggest that you increase your sitting time on the Salli gradually:
A typical sitting plan that we recommend for the Salli is outlined below:

Day 1: Use the chair for a maximum of 1 hour over the day
Day 2: Use the chair for a maximum of 2 hours over the day
Day 3-7: Use the chair for a maximum of 3 hours over the day
Day 7-14: Use the chair for a maximum of 4 hours over the day
Day 14-21: Use the chair for a maximum of 5 hours over the day
Day 21 onwards: Use the chair normally.

It is important to have regular rest breaks during the day (every 30 minutes). During the rest break we recommend that you get out of the chair and move around. Many people get so engrossed in their work that they forget to take a break and so, if you fit this description, you may want to set diary reminders which will act as a prompt to remind you to get out of your Salli for a few minutes every hour. Regular rest breaks are particularly important if you are prone to back ache or have a condition that is aggravated by sustained sitting.
