The reason I don't use a stool is the fixed height and the hard seat. Can I say coccyx? Of course a pillow or special pad would help.
The strangest thing----- when first taken ill and attendant woes with sitting I kept thinking about sitting in my English saddle. (Go figure) My husband brought in a saw horse and put the saddle on it----- I managed to get onto it and wow----much less pain, even without having a back.
Riding English style demands that a person sit in a 'perfect position' that can't be done on any chair! Naturally I don't have my English saddle here. LOL Or my horse.
Google "perching stool" or "perching chair" . There are several entries. I don't know if the American Red Cross operates that same as the British Red Cross but it might be worth asking them for recommendations or they may have a medical loans scheme.
(There is also a Scandinavian designed "kneeling stool" but it looks uncomfortable to me and I would think that it puts pressure on your knees
and hips. It's expensive too!)
I know what you mean about your English saddle.
