The Humanscale Freedom Chair is one of our most popular ergonomic chairs because it promotes freedom from knobs, locks or levers; its intuitive adjustments require no alterations once the chair is fitted to a user.
All of the Humanscale Freedom Chair's ergonomic features, benefits and customizable options are listed below and in the option tab, including Freedom videos, reviews and brochures. If you have any questions or need help configuring a chair, please don't hesitate to contact us.
For optimal sitting comfort and health we recommend the purchase of a foot rest with your Humanscale Freedom Chair. Check out Humanscale Foot Machine foot rests.
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.
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.
Our recommendation: Many users prefer the added adjustability of the advanced armrests.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Freedom Chair is available with three frame colors: graphite and titanium frames are standard colors, and the polished aluminum frame is an upgrade available with either titanium or graphite shells on the cushions and arms.
This is what a black Freedom Chair looks like with each of the three frame choices:
The Freedom Chair comes standard with a highly durable composite base with graphite or titanium finish, or upgrade to a polished aluminum base finish.

Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The fauxsuede'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.
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.

The Humanscale Freedom chair is one of the easiest chairs to adjust and appreciate. A counterbalance self-adjusts according to your weight and movement, and the armrest design and movement on this chair is exceptional. If you like to fidget while sitting and don't like manual controls, then this could be your chair. It is designed to fit a wide variety of body types. The Freedom is an excellent fit for slender to average individuals because the seating area is smaller than many other chairs.
