When you want to get the full benefit of working at a height adjustable desk the Bambach saddle seat makes a great choice.
This cleverly thought out seat is based on the design and interaction of a horse saddle when riding a horse.
It presents your body in an open angle position with great stability.
Not only that because of the way it works it actually prevents you from slumping when you sit in it.
So let’s weigh up who it will appeal to.
Who is it for?
The flexibility built into a Bambach chair makes it ideal for anyone who works regularly at a height adjustable desk. Its range of adjustment makes it suitable for all sizes of users.
It has a broad appeal for both sitting and standing to work.
Why it’s particularly good for height adjustable desk use
When you work at a height adjustable desk particularly at higher levels you want to be not only comfortable but stable as well.
One thing you will notice about the Bambach straight away is how balanced you feel in it. Sometimes when you are working at higher levels some seats lack stability.
Not so with the Bambach. The reason for this is your legs are placed wider apart than many seats. This wider angle means your weight is distributed over a greater area. Not only that, because you can adjust the seat angle you find you are sitting as nature intended on your sit bones.
This way of sitting offers many health benefits including:
- Improves posture
- Better muscle tone
- Enhances circulation
- Correct breathing
- Eases back pain
A lot of these benefits are possible because the Bambach saddle seat allows users to adjust the angle of the seat by way of a lever on the right underside of the chair. This is great for finding the optimum seating position for your comfort. Once you have it set it will probably work well for whatever height you sit at.
The only frequent adjustment will be the height of the seat. And this is easily controlled with the conventional paddle lever you find on office chairs.
Also your feet make it very easy to move about your workspace quickly or even the wider office area.
Let’s take a look at the technical details next.
The most popular model is the standard or medium which will cater for the widest range of users. The large model is intended for taller or heavier framed people.
The difference between the models is in the seat styling and shape. However the standard/medium version will be fine for the vast majority of height adjustable desk users.
There is an optional backrest which is both height and depth adjustable. However, because the seat places you naturally in a healthy posture a backrest isn’t essential for moving top desk users.
When you need to alter the height of your seat when working and would like to use your feet instead of your hands then the surgeon’s foot control could be useful. This handy add on is specifically designed for the medical industry where sterile conditions are important. It allows you to control the seat height with your feet. It sits underneath the 5 star base and by applying pressure with your foot it’s easy to alter the seat height instead of by the hand operated paddle lever under the seat.
There are no conventional chair arms for the Bambach, instead what is offered is a body support arm. It is designed to be more of a rest where the user can place an elbow to steady their arm. You can also rest your body against it if you want to. It attaches to the main body of the gas lift and can be either locked in place or moved out of the way.
An optional chrome foot ring is available if required, although for adjustable height desk use it could get in the way especially when semi standing.
Warranty and finishes
The Bambach carries a 5 year warranty on all parts. There are 3 choices of upholstery with a huge range of colors.

Quick ship finishes on the standard/medium model are from the Naugha Soft range in Black Satin, Cocoa (dark cream), Deep Sapphire (dark blue) and Feather (light grey).
The standard 5 star base is black nylon with an optional polished aluminum version available at extra cost if preferred.
The Bambach saddle seat will work for pretty much any height adjustable desk user. Its wide range of adjustment makes it practical for people both short and tall.
It does take some time to get used to its special way of sitting so some perseverance may be needed. However those that stick with it will love the stable healthy support it gives.
