Score Jumper is an ergonomic saddle stool that allows you to sit with an active and healthy posture. The design of the saddle tilts your pelvis forwards, promoting the natural ‘s-curve’ of your spine which allows you to sit for long periods of time in comfort, protected against strain.
Score Jumper Saddle Stool Product Details
Score Jumper saddle stool improves your posture by placing you into a near standing position. Your hips are opened 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 Score Jumper promotes, allows your core to open up, which optimises blood circulation and breathing. Your body is able to work efficiently, delivering oxygen and nutrients around your body 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.
Score Jumper comes with a fixed seat angle as standard which can be upgraded to a locking tilt mechanism. This allows you to adjust the angle of the saddle, forwards and backwards, to suit your desired position for tasking. The tilt enables you to extend and lean more freely while remaining fully supported.
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.
