The Humanscale® Freedom office chair is our most advanced option because it is so simple to use and offers a comfortable, customized sit. It moves with you throughout the day, adjusting with your body as you shift your weight and position. The armrests move in tandem to eliminate uneven arm positioning. Enjoy support from an optional headrest that features five inches of height adjustment to promote healthy posture. Additional lumbar support comes from Freedom's tri-panel backrest that naturally cradles your back without having to adjust using knobs and levers.

We believe it’s important to understand features that make each chair unique so you can find what works best for your needs and preferences. Get to know the ergonomic benefits of each feature and how it relates to your work style.
  • Adjustable Headrest
    • This chair offers an optional headrest that provides an additional five inches of height adjustment for back and neck support in a reclining position.
  • Back Support
    • This chair moves with you throughout the day, adjusting with your body as you shift your weight and position. Its reclining capabilities reduce stress on your back and encourage movement.
  • Lumbar Support
    • Lumbar support comes from this chair’s tri-panel backrest that naturally cradles your back without having to adjust using knobs and levers. This feature mimics the natural curve of your spine to provide the greatest amount of lower back support when seated, which is important if the chair is used frequently or as a primary task chair.
  • Armrest Support
    • Armrests offer extra support throughout the workday to reduce strain on your upper arms and neck. This chair’s height-adjustable armrests move in tandem to eliminate uneven arm positioning and provide the right amount of support.
  • Seat Cushion
    • This chair’s contoured foam cushion helps minimize pressure on your thighs and knees to ensure lasting comfort and proper circulation in your legs.
  • Adjustable Seat Depth
    • Adjusting your seat depth to thigh length provides a comfortable, healthy sit. This is a helpful feature if the chair will be used by more than one person.
  • Back Tension
    • Self-adjusting tension control automatically regulates the effort required to recline. This is an especially helpful feature if the chair will be used by multiple people, as it automatically adjusts to accommodate personal preferences.
  • Adjustable Seat Height
    • This is a great feature if the chair will be used by multiple people or at more than one work surface. Position your seat height so thighs are parallel to the floor and feet are flat for healthy circulation in your legs.
  • Casters
    • This chair features hard plastic casters that are ideal for carpeted floors. Soft plastic casters, best for hard floors, can be ordered. Contact us for details.

    Customer comments about Freedom® Office Chair:

    I used to have chronic lower back pain. Mild, but uncomfortable. Since I bought this chair a couple of years ago (not from R&B), I have not had any back pain. The armrests are also perfectly adjusted for my desk, although they are at the top of their range. The only downside is the seat of the chair is very firm and can be uncomfortable. Despite this fault, I love this chair.
