The RGP Straddle Stool is a great stool for someone who typically wants to work higher and doesn't normally use the backrest on their stool. The equestrian style saddle seat cushion will position the legs in a downward slope and will allow the user closer access to the patient. It has a tilt option to adjust the angle of the cushion. This seat also forces anterior pelvic tilt and aligns the spine in more of its natural positioning.
The hip and knee joints stay open as the user sits higher and the core muscles are engaged. There is minimal pressure under the legs and the chair is also very compact making it easy to fit in any small space or around any patient chair. Features:
Equestrian style saddle seat cushion
Dual lever mechanism with seat tilt adjustment
Tall Cylinder for wide height range
Limited Lifetime Warranty on mechanical components
Stool comes built with the 'tall' cylinder for maximum height range
For users under 5 feet we recommend building the chair with the 'standard' cylinder

Armrests or Shoulder Supports
Many practitioners experience discomfort and fatigue in the shoulders, neck and upper back. RGP’s shoulder support system provides range of motion to perform your task and removes the weight of your arm off your upper back, neck and shoulders.
Typically used on the non-dominant or mirror hand, the two dimensional shoulder support alleviates the stress and strain from your upper back, neck and shoulders while allowing you to retract or hold your arm pain-free and stable for very long periods of time.
Used on your dominant arm, the three dimensional shoulder support provides full range of motion for your instrument side.
Foot Activator (adds 5″ to height):
The RGP Foot Activator is a small spring loaded ring that sits at the bottom of the 5 leg base. It is designed for quick height adjustment of the RGP stool. It also eliminates the possibility of contamination by allowing the user to adjust the height hands free. While seated, press the ring with the heel of your foot to lower the stool. To raise, simply stand while pressing the ring simultaneously. The RGP Foot Activator adds 5” to stool height.
The foot ring is footrest that sits above the wheels.
