Saddle Stool The Flight Saddle stool is the newest product to be added to the Flight family of operatory stools. The saddle stool is a multi-purpose stool that is appropriate for dental, medical, podiatry, ENT, beauty, spa, tattoo, veterinarian, lab, technical and office use. Saddle stools are very similar in look, design and feel as an equestrian saddle. The saddle design for seating comes with a pneumatic gas cylinder to allow the user to adjust the correct height to reach the optimal angle of 135 degrees between the hips and knees. On traditional chairs your hips and knees are typically at a 90 degree angle causing most people to naturally slouch or hunch over and over time this can lead to chronic shoulder and back pain. A 135 degree angle promotes proper posture and allows your spine to be in a healthy lordotic curved position that helps to reduce the pressure and stress on your spinal cord and to create a stronger core.
