The Humanscale Freedom Ergonomic Office Chairs

The Humanscale Freedom Office Chair is a study in simplicity.

This office chair is smart. Humanscale has made a valiant attempt at creating simple ergonomic office chairs that gives a great deal of ergonomic support, with a minimal amount of manually adjustable controls. The idea is that, once the chair is fitted to you, you don't have to adjust it anymore. You can still have your freedom of movement within the office chair, but it doesn't restrict you, it supports you.

Metareview of the Humanscale Freedom

  • The Humanscale Freedom automatically adjusts to your body
  • Very comfortable Built to encourage spontaneous changes of position.
  • This could be one of the best purchases you can make for your health, however...
  • The deal-breaker for some users is the lack of a locking mechanism for the back of the seat and they never feel comfortable in the chair. Try this chair out, if the lack of a locking solution doesn't bother you and you can afford it, buy it! Humanscale didn't build a locking back on the chair on purpose, they didn't think you need it, but find a local store that carries it and try it out, then buy it online to save some money.

These functions come standard on the Humanscale Freedom Office Chairs
