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.


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 Height

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.

  • Standard height cylinder fits 90% of the population
  • 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.

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

Humanscale Freedom Chair in Leather Features

Self-Adjusting Recline

  • The Freedom chair features a dynamic, reclining mechanism that provides the right amount of support throughout a full range of motion, regardless of your size or weight- this means there's no tension springs to adjust and no recline locks to worry about, instead the Freedom chair has a "virtual lock" that adjusts to the natural position of your body
  • While reclining, the angle between your torso and legs opens up for better body functioning, and you can maintain near constant eye level when leaning back

Dual Pivot Backrest

  • 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

  • The cushions are carefully sculpted to match your body's contours and increase contact area to reduce pressure points
  • Cushions are modular so changing them is easy; replace worn cushions so your chair lasts a lifetime

Position Sensitive Headrest

  • Headrest moves into place when you recline and out of the way when you sit up
  • Contoured design cradles the head and neck in comfort
  • Cushion moves with the natural arc of head and neck for perfect support throughout the range of 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 250 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.
