Product Description

The Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest is designed to give the maximum ergonomic benefit to the sitter with a minimum number of manually adjusted controls. Once the Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest is fitted no further adjustment is required. The idea is that movement which is essential for a healthy body should not be constricted by locking mechanisms and manual controls. In other words sitting comfortably is not something you should have to think about.

Winner of ten design awards to date-including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design
Review 2000 competition-the Freedom chair by Niels Diffrient has revolutionized the task chair industry.
Its weight-sensitive recline, synchronously adjustable armrests, and dynamically positioned headrest set new
standards for task chair performance and functionality to keep the sitter exceptionally comfortable while also
lowering the risk of long-term injury.


1) Automatic Headrest
Freedom's dynamic, position sensitive headrest adjusts to cradle your head and neck as your recline, and
moves out of the way when you sit upright automatically.

2) Recline Action
As you recline, you'll maintain a near consistent eye level, while the angle between your torso and legs
opens up for better body function.

3) Contoured Cushions
The cushions are sculpted to closely follow body contours, which increase contact and decreases
concentrated loads. Our optional Technogel seat cushion maximizes weight distribution and comfort.

4) Responsive Backrest
The pivoting backrest automatically adapts to the changing needs of your spine during recline.

5) Synchronous Armrests
Freedom's body-friendly gel armrests move up and down together and stay with you during recline,
always keeping you in supported balance.

6) Body Fit
The seat, backrest and headrest may be independently positioned to fit your exact body size.

7) Intelligent Mechanism
With Freedom's revolutionary counter-balance mechanism, your weight automatically balances the
force required to recline the chair. So whether you're big or small, short or tall, the recline tension is
always perfectly adjusted to let you move while keeping you fully supported in all positions.
