Humanscale Freedom Saddle Seat
The Humanscale Saddle Chair is extremely comfortable and versatile. Humanscale Saddle Seats feature a triangular cushion that encourages users to sit in a "saddle" posture. This posture lowers the thighs, rotates the pelvis forward and puts the spine into its natural lordotic curve. The "saddle" posture also reduces pressure points for longer-term comfort and allows users to get closer to their work. It is ideal for short duration computer work, clinical applications or as a side-seating option. The Humanscale Freedom Pony Saddle Seat is a petite version of this stool, with a seat diameter that is reduced by six inches. The Humanscale Freedom Saddle Seat is manufactured in the USA.

I've tried them all...this one is a winner!

Over 10 years I have had every kind of chair for my computer desk job ranging from $1000 chairs to ones that claim to be ergonomic at lower prices. I have been dis-satisfied until now. This saddle stool allows the firmness needed to sit upright without a back support all day long. I would recommend it to anyone!

For Musicians, it is the best I have found. Great in the Studio for playing (lower positions) or singing (up high). Great seat.
great seat - questionable footrest
September 30, 2013
Love the seat - no complaints. Would definitely NEVER get another footrest because while it is very sturdy, it is attached to the chair WITH PLASTIC!!! Time will tell whether it will hold or not, but I am skeptical. I need to step on the footrest to get up on the chair. Also I probably would not get a chair with wheels for use on a hard floor, because I tend to roll too much, making the chair more hazardous than it should be. I am worried that the kids (or ME!) will hurt themselves if the chair rolls from under while getting on.

Humanscale's saddle seat is the best!
February 15, 2012
I have owned my saddle seat (extra high, 22" foot ring, hard casters, wave fabric) for over five years now, and it is fantastic! I use it at a standing workstation for those times when I am stationary for long periods. It has held up impressively well over the years, with only very slight wear visible on the wave fabric at the ends of the saddle "horns." My only complaint about this item is the inability for the foot ring to hold position. It appears, based on photos, that Humanscale has redesigned the foot ring to be, perhaps, more robust on new models. I'm considering just welding my ring in place so I don't have to deal with re-positioning it every day. Aside from that, the chair is comfortable for sitting reasonable periods, simple to mount/dismount, stable, and moves effortlessly out of the way (tucking discreetly under the desk surface).
love my chair

I purchased my saddle seat for my loom but it is so absolutely comfortable that I have removed my desk chair and now I roll the saddle seat between my desk and my loom. It is comfortable and my back feels great--I can sit much longer periods of time.
