The 300-Pound-Capacity Split Seat Stool with a cushioned backrest is perfect for doctor's office and dental practices. This adjustable stool is made with a lightweight yet sturdy aluminum base and upholstered in black antimicrobial vinyl that's easy to clean and disinfect, which is particularly helpful in healthcare settings.
The ergonomic benefits of this split-seat saddle stool make it a great option for promoting employee wellness and satisfaction. Many studies report numerous health benefits of using saddle seat stools. Saddle seat stools promote better posture and open up the hips and chest. They also relieve lower back pressure by shifting your body weight to your thigh muscles rather than having most of the weight on the back in a normal seated position.
These stools engage your core muscles and promote active sitting so the body doesn't become as stiff or uncomfortable during long periods of sitting. The design of the stool also works to loosen tight hip flexors that may contribute to or worsen back pain and discomfort.
Split-seat saddle stools offer the additional benefit of improved ventilation and superior adjustability. The left cushion can be adjusted outwards to achieve the proper seat width for each user. Additionally, the entire cushion can be adjusted to a forward pitch if desired. The cushioned backrest offers additional back support during work-intensive procedures and provides added stability while sitting.
Employees across all industries can benefit from ergonomic features and potential health benefits of saddle stools. Doctors and healthcare professionals are some of the top users of these types of stools due to the nature of their work. However, beauticians, artists and vet techs will all appreciate the reduction in fatigue and increase in mobility.
The split saddle seat is width adjustable and is cushioned with a high-density molded foam. The stool's cushion is upholstered in an easy-to-clean black antimicrobial vinyl, which is a great fit for any healthcare setting. Simply adjust the pitch of the seat forward if desired for even more active sitting.
The lightweight yet sturdy aluminum base is 22 inches in diameter to fit perfectly in small exam rooms and supports users up to 300 pounds. This stool easily moves with your body on five swivel casters. Standard seat height range is 22 to 29 inches high from the center of the seat to the floor. Need something a little taller? Purchase the optional foot ring kit with taller optional gas cylinder to increase the seat height range to 24 to 31 inches.
