Just keeping it real, the HAG Capisco Saddle Chair is one of the funkiest looking chairs we've ever seen, but it is also one of our very favorites. It is all about getting great support with a very open hip angle and a terrific curve in your spine. The Capisco is made to let you move, and no chair lets you stretch out better than this. We have fitted a lot of different body types and sizes in this chair over the years with great results. The Hag Capisco sits higher than most chairs, and can become a virtual standing support. The saddle seat allows your legs to angle downward, and the base has built-in foot rests. For normal height sitting, though, it is best to create a three point stance with your feet firmly on the floor. Adjustments include seat depth and back height, plus an angle lock. The gas lift comes in three different height ranges.
Some people choose to sit backward in the Capisco, leaning into the backrest. This is ideal for those who prefer to lean into their computer, or for those doing fine motor skill work. Jewelers, dentists and ultrasound technicians are among the jobs most often thought of to benefit from this. Our advice is to use the chair in both directions, and when leaning into it, to be sure to drop the backrest height down to your thighs in order to keep the armrests from getting in your way. If purchased for use in a hospital, be sure to ask us about meeting CAL 133 fire code and anti-microbial fabrics, or consider getting the new Capisco Puls.
All Hag products are certified SCS level 1 for sustainability, although fabrics are rated separately. As of January 2017, HAG and IzzyPlus are no longer affiliated.
