Product Description


The Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest has earned the loyalty of its fans. No thought or effort is needed to recline or change positions and movement is a key goal when seeking a healthier work environment. Highly contoured cushions provide excellent back, lumbar and lateral support with a feel reminiscent of the car seats in a luxury sports car.

HumanScale Freedom Chair Standard Model Features

  • Dynamic mechanism opens body angle for improved blood flow and requires no knobs, levers, or tension adjustments.
  • Height adjustable back features contoured lateral support and a prominent lumbar support that maintains a healthy lorthotic curve. Backrest features a pivot that moves as you move, responding to the changing needs of your spine.
  • The headrest is height adjustable and cradles your neck and head for support when reclining – maintaining line of site with your monitors.
  • Seat is height and depth adjustable for proper leg support
  • Height adjustable arms move in tandem and can be placed very low for times when you want your arms out of the way. Advanced arms also pivot.
  • 15-year, 24/7 warranty.

The standard Humanscale Freedom Chair can still be customized to meet your comfort and style requirements.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Arms

Choose from no arms, height adjustable arms, or height adjustable arms with a pivoting armpad, and from two different types of armpads, as well as whether or not you want the armpads upholstered to match your chair.

Choose either the standard foam seat or gel seat.

  • Standard foam – molded foam is contoured to match body contours and reduce pressure points
  • Gel seat – is crafted of a non-degradable, non-compressible Technogel layer with a foam core. The gel seat conforms better to the body, distributing your body weight more evenly across the seat pan. This further reduces the pressure of sitting on your body.

Buy Smart: The gel seat takes 15 minutes or so to warm up and conform to your body. It’s a great upgrade for those who sit in their chair for long stretches. We recommend the standard padding for those who are up and down, or if the chair sees occasional use.

Freedom Chair Height / Cylinder Options

Choose one of three cylinders to tailor the seated height range to the user.

  • Standard – 16″ – 21″ – fits most people from 5’2″ to 6’3″
  • Low – 15.25″ – 19″ – works well for 5′ to 5’6
  • Tall – 17″ – 22.25″ – extends the height range for taller users or for use at with a higher desktop

Buy Smart: Seated height is only part of the solution for users who are shorter or taller than average. Make sure the seat depth will fit the user as well, otherwise choose a chair that is better sized for that person.


  • Standard casters – work well for carpet and plastic carpet protectors
  • Soft casters – are slower and quieter on hard floors such as linoleum, tile, and concert
  • Glides – do not roll at all and work on any floor
