Designed to help minimize lower back problems and reduce the potential for musculoskeletal disorders, Scandex Series 600 Björn Swedish Ergonomic Saddle Stool has been adapted specifically for the male user to remove pressure on the prostate.
There many health benefits that result from sitting and working with the proper posture, and essentially holding the spine in its natural S-curve. Sitting on the Björn Swedish Ergonomic Saddle Stool with the angle between the torso and the legs (thigh portion) at 135 degrees (a 45-degree angle to the floor) automatically positions the body in a posture-perfect manner, even without a back support. The benefits for men of using the Series 600 Björn Swedish Ergonomic Saddle Stool over a regular chair or stool include:
- Reduced tension and pain in the back, neck and shoulders,due to sitting with the spine in its natural neutral S-curve.
- Better circulation to legs and feet
- No pressure on the prostate
- Improvement in respiration as the seated posture on a Björn Swedish Ergonomic Saddle Stool allows for deeper, easier breathing.
“Good posture relieves tension in the back, shoulders, neck – really the whole body overall – which in turn aids breathing, digestion and circulation,” explained Sven Emilsson, Director of Sales at Scandex. He continued, “In the way that men’s and women’s bicycle seats differ, the new version of our equestrian style saddle stool is designed with men’s comfort and health in mind.”
