Score saddle seats feature a lever-based forwards and backwards tilting mechanism. This allows the user to put more weight through the legs, which enhances manoeuvrability and allows more extension in the spine. Alternatively, the purchaser can opt for a balance mechanism which encourages active seating.

Lumbar support add-ons are available too. In addition, Score seats are fully height adjustable.

Frequently asked questions about the brand 

Does sitting on a Score saddle chair take time to get used to? If you are only used to sitting on a conventional office chair, then, yes, it will require a period of acclimatising before you feel comfortable in an active sitting chair. It is a good idea to start by limiting yourself to brief sitting periods, certainly no more than 30 minutes, interspersed with a walk around the room and a few stretches.

It would seem to be the case that users adapt more readily to the lever based tilting mechanism than the balance mechanisms. This is most likely because the balance mechanism is inherently more unstable and therefore more challenging to adapt to.

What is the best Score chair for me? The broader Score Jumper is more popular among male users. The narrower Score Amazone tends to be the choice favoured by females. If the stool is to be shared between users, the Amazone is the better choice, as it is preferred by 75% of dentist users.

As far as balance versus tilt is concerned, it is a matter of personal preference. Some find the active seating inherent in the Amazone balance and Jumper balance mechanism to be advantageous in terms of reducing the discomfort of being stuck in a single position for too long. The lever based tilting mechanism is easier to use so might be a better choice for those who are new to ergonomic saddle sitting and who prefer to be able to extend their spine more during sitting.

Finally, the lumbar support model gives the user light augmentation in the lower back area. It also provides the benefit to the user of giving them the ability to lean back against it from time to time, shifting posture and stretching, should this be a required feature.

How sustainable is Score? The products are solidly built with good length guarantees. The gas lifts have a lifetime warranty, the metal parts five years, and the upholstery two years.
