A non-degradable, non-compressible Technogel layer on top of a foam core provides maximum pressure distribution and offers unmatched, long-term comfort.
Our recommendation: The Humanscale Freedom Chair's Technogel seat has a firmer "sit" than the standard foam, but it 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 standard foam.

Check out our video review of the Humanscale Freedom Chair with Headrest below.
The Humanscale Freedom is rated to 300 pounds and carries a limited 15 year warranty. Due to chair dimensions, we recommend this chair for people 230 pounds and under.
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.
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.

This chair is by far the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in. I have lower back problems and this chair fits my problems perfectly. I am also on the shorter end in height and have always found it hard to find a chair that would allow me to sit completely back into the chair and not feel like the seat is jabbing into the back of my knees. This chair is absolutely 100% worth the money.
The Freedom chair is one of the easiest chairs to adjust. A counterbalance self adjusts according to your weight and movement. The armrest design and movement on this chair are exceptional. It is designed to fit a wide variety of body types. If you like to fidget while sitting and don't like manual controls then this could be your chair. This chair is an excellent fit for slender to average individuals as the seating area is smaller than many other chairs.
