Saddle seats provide more healthful sitting postures than conventional ergonomic chair designs, and have many health benefits. 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. 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. 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.
