      Product Information


      Choose Between Two Seat Types


      Score’s saddle chairs are available in two models.

        Amazone Models
        Narrow seat (340mm wide).
        Although this is a matter of personal preference generally speaking many women tend to prefer the Amazone model with its narrow seat and a narrower front section which allows you to sit with your knees closer together.

        Jumper Models
        Wider seat 440mm wide.
        Choose a Jumper model if you prefer a larger seat surface.

        As a rough guide we recommend the following based on the clothing sizes listed below;
      • Note: A dress size of 14 or pants size of 34 equates to an approximate hip circumference of 104 cm.

      FAQ 1: What Are The Main Differences Between The Amazone And Jumper Models?

      Choice Of Two Seat Mechanisms


      • (1) Tilt Model.
        • The tilt models feature a front to back seat angle adjustment setting.
        • The infinite tilt adjustment enables you to select the most comfortable seat angle to suit you.
        • It is important on saddle seat to have this tilt adjustment to relieve any pressure from the raised front section of the seat.
      • (1) Balance Model.
        • Balance models feature "active seating". A unique multi-directional tilting mechanism that is adjustable to your preferred level of movement.
        • Unlike traditional saddle seats; the Score Balance mechanism stimulates the muscles in the lower back improving muscle tone and strength; reducing back pain and sitting fatigue. Because the seat is not fixed and moves with your natural movement it feels immediately comfortable to sit on.




      Correct Lumbar Support Is Achieved With Or Without A Backrest Support

      You do not need a backrest to get the benefits of a saddle seat. However, leaning into a backrest can be helpful to control the seat as you move around your workspace. The backrest can also be used as a stretch support i.e. handy to occasionally lean into and stretch when sitting for long periods. 

      Once you have set the saddle seat to the correct height - so that your spine is in a natural "S" curve - simply adjust the backrest so that it fits snug into your spines natural lumbar curve. This is very different to a backrest support on a traditional office chair where generally your spine is in a "C" curve and the lumbar support is used to force the spine into the more natural "S" curve.

      Choose From Three Saddle Heights?



      The optimum sitting position on a saddle chair is when a 110 to 135-degree angle is created between the thighs and the upper body. This will automatically position your spine in a natural healthy "S" curve.  To achieve the optimum spine curvature you will require the right saddle seat for your physical height. Simply follow the guide above to select the correct chair height.


      What is Active Seating?


      Active seating is when a chair allows or encourages users to move. It is also commonly referred to as dynamic sitting, the concept is that flexibility and movement while sitting can be beneficial to the human body.

      In the field of ergonomics, the concept of active sitting is gaining recognition, particularly among people whose work involves prolonged sitting.

      Active vs. Static Sitting
      Active or dynamic sitting is the opposite of static sitting.
      Static sitting occurs when a chair is rigid and results in sustained mechanical tissue loading. Static seating is widely thought to contribute to negative health effects.
      The human body is not well adapted for long hours spent sitting in a restrictive or constrained posture. 

      The negative effects of static sitting
      •The abdominal muscles may relax and even atrophy over prolonged periods of minimal physical activity.
      •Prolonged postural loading of the spine while sitting, without natural movement and mobilization of the spinal joints, can reduce joint lubrication and increase stiffness, which can be detrimental to back health.
      •Circulation, particularly of the legs, can be adversely affected. In fact, back pain and circulation discomfort are part of a growing avalanche of complaints which can be attributed in part to extensive static sitting.
      •Sustained static postures at a computer can strain the upper back and neck muscles and when combined with stress factors, contribute to muscle tension and resulting pain.

      The majority of chairs and stools commercially available today still tend to limit postural movement, however, innovative products such as Score Balance models allow a more dynamic posture that follows and conforms to the movements and physical shape of the seated occupant. This dynamic sitting enhances functional movement and helps to prevents the physical discomfort and potential bodily damage due to prolonged static sitting.
