The Royal Saddle Plus
The Royal Saddle Plus is a chair designed to be used in both sitting and standing positions. The saddle shape of the seat allows for (almost) full leg extension . This makes it easier to sit higher without having pressure on the thighs. The small lumbar support prevents flattening of the lower back, allows for optimal freedom of movement and stretching of the spine.
A good ergonomic stool needs to have a lumbar support to prevent slouching. It is proven that we loose at least 30% of the curvature of the spine after 5-10 minutes of sitting. Without a support more pressure will occur within the discs increasing the chance of spinal injury and (lower) back problems.
The Royal Saddle Plus also comes as an Assistant Stool with a taller cylinder, belly support and adjustable foot ring.
The Royal Saddle Plus has proven its contribution to preventing and improving back complaints in many cases (see our testimonial page). Available with various armrests and foot ring (see accessories page).
“As an ergonomics specialist, here's my two cents on a product I absolutely love. BQE has different designs with different price points, however, the beauty of the chair, unlike ANY in the industry, is that there is a "dynamic" backrest that moves with your spine. That means when the clinician is actively working, they are in a slightly forward pitched (tipped) position, and when the clinician is in a passive state, the back rest fully supports the lumbar region--the most vulnerable part of the spine. It's truly revolutionary and exceeds the criteria of my critical body of knowledge regarding posture.”
