Default Ergonomic Saddle Chair

Has anyone tried using an ergonomic saddle chair when sewing/quilting? I have the standard adjustable office chair right now but this looked kind of interesting.

I have one and I am in the process of learning.....how to sit on it. It is comfortable and the height is adjustable so it becomes almost a custom fit for you. I have used it while using the quilting machine and have yet to use it while piecing and sewing.

I've been wanting one for when I do micro-quilting.

That is a WEIRD looking chair! Particularly the one that you sit on sort of backwards, with what looks like a back rest actually being a chest-and-forearm rest. It seems like that would be hot, like wearing a huge padded vest.

I would be curious to try one out...I have back problems, and have had a hip replaced, so not sure if it would be really good for me or really bad! Where would one go to try one out in person, I wonder? I've never seen a chair like that for sale around here.

I have a regular office chair. I think that would just bug me and if you have ever sat on a bycycle seat for a long time....you know the problem with that.

I think the backwards one would get in the way of maneuvering the quilt. I've seen recommendations for the saddle chair (without arm or back) for use with a frame - and I think it does allow the sitter great flexibility to move around/along the frame.

Does anyone remember the 'chairs' where you rested your shins on the lower padding - and had no backrest. We had one for years with our computer desk, though now I'd probably fall on my face trying to stand up from it.

Cheers, K

There were pictures of "kneeling chairs" with the saddle seats. I think that's what you are thinking about. I used to want one, but now I don't think my knees could handle it.

THANKS for the laugh Tartan !!! I think as long as you have a GOOD office chair, you should get the proper support from that. I use to quilt professionally and with a lumbar support, I kept my back problems down to a low rumble !!
