Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest

Item #: HUS093
Send Page to Friend

The Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest forgoes knobs and levers for the simplicity of instant, dynamic support. As you lean back, the counter-balance mechanism, an invention of renowned designer Niels Diffrient, uses your body weight to apply the appropriate amount of tension and support throughout its full range of recline. Each part of the chair may be individually positioned to match your body size while the contoured cushions that cover them combat pressure points, which can lead to painful fatigue. Visit our other Humanscale Freedom Chair listing if you prefer a chair without a headrest, or check out the Humanscale Freedom Chair Same Day Ship Models if you need an ergonomic chair fast. Humanscale chairs are Manufactured in the USA.

The Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest is an ergonomic chair unto itself with its innovative counter-balance mechanism that, in conjunction with your body weight, instantly aligns its recline tension to your posture. The idea behind the chair, one that originated with designer Niels Diffrient, is to encourage frequent movement without requiring you to manage the chair's adjustments each time you move. The height adjustable headrest moves forward when you recline to cradle your head and maintain near constant eye contact, while a pivoting backrest offers vital lumbar support throughout the full range of recline. Contoured cushions that reduce the risk of pressure points, synchronous armrests that prevent uneven arm positioning, and a 15-year manufacturer's warranty makes the Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest a mainstay of any office.

Features - Humanscale Freedom Chair

  • Counter-balance mechanism provides instant, dynamic support for 95% of the population, or from a 5' 0" woman to a 6' 4" man
  • Recline avoids pressure points by opening up angle between your torso and legs
  • Extra motion provided by the backrest during recline automatically adjusts to the changing needs of your spine
  • Dynamic movement provides up to one inch of additional lumbar support when needed
  • Contoured cushions increase contact area to reduce pressure points
  • Contoured headrest moves forward for complete neck support, allowing you to maintain near constant eye level as you recline

The Human Solution is a fully authorized Humanscale Dealer

Shop Smart: Shop Authorized and Protect Your Investment

The Human Solution is an authorized Humanscale reseller. All manufacturers sign a contractual agreement with their dealers that require dealers uphold a specific code of behavior that provides for quality support both before and after the sale of their products, including warranty support. Humanscale authorized dealers must meet high quality standards for customer service, product selection, and business ethics. This policy includes:

  • A brand new product guarantee (Humanscale authorized dealers are prohibited from selling or marketing used, refurbished, or renewed Humanscale products)
  • Full coverage by Humanscale's lifetime manufacturer warranty
  • On-site product service in 12 major cities and nationwide warranty support

What do you lose by purchasing a Humanscale product from a non-authorized source?

  • While some unauthorized sellers may have their own warranty, it is usually very limited in scope, often as short as 30 days. The warranty is only as good as the dealer who backs it; if they go out of business, your warranty is gone with them.
  • Humanscale assigns serial numbers to every chair they manufacturer - this record details the original purchaser and ensures the lifetime warranty is only valid for the original purchaser. You cannot purchase replacement parts, pads or fabric without the serial number. Additionally if your chair breaks, you cannot get it repaired.
  • Humanscale chairs are rated to 300 pounds and a 40 hour work week. If a refurbished chair has seen more use than this, its lifetime will be shortened.
  • When comparing dealers and pricing, read the description thoroughly. As all authorized dealers are subject to the same minimum advertised pricing, any dealer lower should be suspect.

Arms - Humanscale Freedom Chair

The Freedom arms are available in two different styles: standard and advanced. The standard arms quickly move up and down; the advanced arms are width as well as height adjustable.

humanscale-freedom-arm-options

Standard Armrests

  • Revolutionary armrests move in tandem to eliminate the dangers of uneven arm positioning
  • Natural lift-and-release action allows for immediate repositioning without the need for buttons or locks
  • The armrests provide a 6" range of vertical motion to accommodate all users and tasks, and they can be positioned below thigh-level for close table or desk work
  • The armrests are attached to the backrest, not the seat like most chairs, so they stay in the same relation to your body when you recline

Advanced Armrests

  • Offer all the same features of the standard armrests
  • Arms slide left and right for width adjustment

Our recommendation: Many users prefer the added adjustability of the advanced armrests.

Arm Options

Once you pick the type of arms to best suit your needs, choose your arm padding, Duron or Technogel. Add a surface material to complement your Freedom color options.

  • Duron is a durable polyurethane arm with a Technogel core for added comfort, and it comes standard on both arm styles
  • Technogel is softer and extremely comfortable, and the standard upholstery on the gel arms is black synthetic leather
  • Either arm padding can be upholstered to match your chair

Seat Cushion - Humanscale Freedom Chair

Humanscale offers a standard padded foam or gel seat cushion on the Freedom chair. Both seats are very comfortable, but the gel seat upgrade offers better long-term support and relief of pressure points for users that sit in their chair 8 to 10 hours a day.

Humanscale chair seat padding options

  • Standard foam seat is contoured to fit your body and reduce pressure points, and is both comfortable and supportive
  • Technogel seat cushion is a non-degradable, non-compressible Technogel layer on top of a foam core that provides maximum pressure distribution and offers unmatched, long-term comfort
  • Technogel seat is available only with the Squiggle, Wave, Bridget, Lotus and Vellum fabrics and is not available with leather, Sensuede or Promessa

Our recommendation: Technogel has a firmer "sit" than the standard foam that softens up somewhat after a few minutes and will offer better back support if you are seated for long periods of time. Users who are up and down more may prefer the foam.

Seat Height - Humanscale Freedom Chair

Raise or lower the height of the Freedom's seat by selecting a cylinder size. When sitting in a chair, a person's feet should rest comfortably on the floor or a foot rest. Ninety-five percent of our customers select the standard height for their chair; however, a petite user with a lower desk or a tall user with a higher desk can opt for a custom configuration without worrying about bumping their knees on a work surface.


Freedom chair height image showing cylinder

  • Standard height cylinder fits 90% of the population
  • Low range cylinder is available for very petite users
  • High range cylinder is available for very tall users
  • Tall and extra tall cylinders combine with a footring to make the Freedom Chair a Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair

Our recommendation: If you aren't sure which height is best for you, give us a call and we'll help you choose.

Casters - Humanscale Freedom Chair

The Freedom chair offers four caster choices. Most of our customers select the standard casters for carpet floors or soft casters for hard floors. Glides are perfect for a stationary chair, and the locking casters let the chair move around when no one is sitting down.

Freedom chair caster choices

  • Standard Hard Casters- 2 1/2" double-wheeled for carpeted floors
  • Soft Casters- 2 1/2" soft double-wheeled for hard floors
  • Glides- non-rolling glides for fixed location use
  • Locking Casters- lock into position when you sit on the chair

Sensuede

Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The faux suede's soft touch comes from the use of breathable and wrinkle resistant recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair but are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. This material also was selected because of its environmentally sensitive content and manufacturing process.

Sensuede Swatches for Humanscale Freedom Chair

Promessa

Promessa is a high quality, breathable and wipe clean synthetic leather that looks great and has a luxurious, soft hand. Promessa ultraleather is more durable than leather and breathes better offering a great option for those who like the look of fine leather but do not wish to pay the price of true leather.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest is one of the easiest chairs to adjust thanks to its counter-balance mechanism that does most of the adjusting for you. The synchronous arm rests adjust in unison to ensure your arms are always at equal heights, while the height adjustable headrest moves forward as you recline enabling you to maintain a consistent eye level. Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of this chair is, once the cushions are positioned, you'll rarely need to adjust them. This is because Humanscale's patented counter-balance mechanism self-adjusts according to your weight and movement to help avoid pressure points and promote better circulation while offering you the freedom of movement.
