Halo Saddle 3D Product Details
Halo Saddle 3D has been ergonomically designed to ensure a healthy posture and the freedom to work and move from a strong position. The shape of the saddle improves your posture by placing you into a near-standing position with your feet placed firmly on the ground. This creates a very strong tripod position between your two feet and the chair base.
The upright work position opens up your hips to an optimal 135° angle which tilts your pelvis forwards, points your thighs downwards and allows your back to assume its natural ‘s-curve'. This neutral position is easy to maintain and ensures you are protected from strain and musculoskeletal injuries. The upright posture allows your core to open up which optimises blood circulation and breathing. And because of this, your body is able to work efficiently, circulating oxygen and nutrients as well as getting rid of waste products like carbon dioxide. The upright posture also gives your core muscles a gentle workout as you flex and relax to maintain a steady position. This is great for your metabolic rate and core strength.
The Halo 3D mechanism opens up the possibilities of what a work chair can be with 3D motion that intuitively follows your body movements. The Halo 3D mechanism pivots 360° around a central axis ensuring the seat tilts in the direction you need it to while you work. This keeps you fully supported while allowing you to reach further and work more efficiently.
Saddle chairs help improve posture by tilting your pelvis forwards and opening up the angle between your hips and knees to 135°. As you sit, your spine can assume its natural curve which minimises the tension in your back muscles and vertebrae. This reduces the chances of experiencing back pain or musculoskeletal injury, especially when your work routines require you to sit for long periods of time.
Saddle chairs ensure your core is functioning at its strongest due to the natural curvature of your back. In this position, your core muscles are engaged as they work to keep you upright, in a healthy posture. As you flex your muscles to maintain this position you are subconsciously working out, which is great for strength and metabolic rate.
Sitting in a saddle chair places you into a tripod-like position, with a triangle forming between your abducted legs and the chair stem. This is a very strong position to work from with both of your feet placed firmly on the floor giving you greater balance. Your legs are also bearing most of your body weight which helps minimise pressure on the rest of your body.
The upright posture encouraged by sitting in a saddle chair opens up your core, allowing your diaphragm to move freely and your organs to work unhindered. This means your body is more able to move oxygen and nutrients around your body and remove waste products like carbon dioxide.
Saddle chairs encourage active sitting, with minimum exertion required to transition between sitting and standing. Movements are made from the hip, rather than the midriff, which allows you to flex further and easier. Manoeuvring around on your stool is also simplified because you are engaging the larger muscles of your upper legs, rather than the calfs.
Saddle chairs allow you to get closer to your work which means you can fulfil your tasks more effectively due to the improved proximity. This reduces the chances of injury from overextending and fatigue from holding yourself in difficult work positions.
