The big difference to other dynamic chairs is that the seating surface of the Salsero® health chair is freely positioned on a ball with the help of two special bearings. Within a radius of about 4 cm, the seating surface can shift in all directions, simultaneously turn and tilt nearly without effort. That makes the Salsero® unique! No other sitting device offers a seat with such freedom of movement. In a subtle and nuanced way, the Salsero® has a positive effect from the base of the lumbar spine over the thoracic to the cervical spine and up to the neck joint.
In contrast to sitting on a Swiss or Pezzi ball with its large contact surfaces, sitting on the Salsero® health chair with its one-spot contact surface positions you distinctively and leads to a nearly frictionless and nuanced sensitive quality. The pivot-, shift- and gravity-point directly at the seating plate allows a soft, refined flow from the lumbar spine over the thoracic to the cervical spine and up to the neck joint. If required, the maximal tilt angle can be reduced by inserting an additional wooden ring which can be positioned underneath the natural rubber ring. The seating plates oval design allows you to hold on to its sides, in case you feel a bit uneasy when sitting down or getting up. Another big advantage is that the Salsero® health chair is steplessly height adjustable and rests on a foot cross. Physiotherapists confirm that patients are far less afraid of falling off the Salsero® than off a Swiss or Pezzi ball. The Salsero® is not only beautifully designed, but also has the advantage of saving space and being movable.

The Salsero® is a sitting furniture and effective training device in one! At first, sitting on the freely movable Salsero® is an unusual training for the muscles of your torso (watch out for muscle soreness!). You can get used to sitting on the movable Salsero® by first using it for shorter time periods. Of course, sitting on the freely positioned seating surfaces requires more of your attention. This means that you have to consciously sit down and get up with more body composure for the sake of your health! When you follow our recommendations above, you will really enjoy your Salsero®. And you will be doing something good for your back!
The movable seat of the Salsero® health chair freely glides on a ball. Therefore, a certain degree of care is necessary. Everyone who has never sat on this chair should be informed about the movability of the seating surface and the potential danger of falling off it! This does not mean that children cannot sit on it to the contrary: in contrast to adults, children move in ways which we unlearn the older we get. Sitting on the Salsero® promotes concentration, the ability to learn and think, and it protects and stabilizes the back. Prerequisite for sitting on the Salsero® is that the child is mature enough to understand the movability of the seat and take proper precautions.
The bearings are manufactured with a CNC- process using a special plastic. They offer very good slide quality with high abrasion resistance. The bearings concave cavities are sized such that, with a precision of 100 Grade, the stainless steel ball cannot slip out of the bearing even when the seat is tilted to the maximum. In the same way the seats gliding horizontally over the ball is softly slowed down through the special shape of the concave cavities.
A natural rubber ring limits and simultaneously gently cushions the tilt angle of the seats surface. As an additional option you can order a wooden ring with a thickness
of 9 mm. The ring consists of two halves and can be positioned underneath the natural rubber ring so that the maximal tilt angle of the seats surface is reduced.
When nobody sits on the Salsero®, it can easily be rolled to the side. As soon as somebody sits on the Salsero® or it is stressed with about 8 kg, the wheels lock and the Salsero® can no longer be moved. The special wheels are necessary to maintain the unique Salsero® characteristics. The Salsero® wheels are suitable for hard as well as soft floors!
The Salsero® therapy- and training stool can also be used at home. It is a lower price alternative with a synthetic foot cross without casters and a massive multiplex plate with an anti-skid sitting surface.
