Neutral Posture offers a variety of seats and seat contours to suit every body. The reason for considering a more contoured seat is that it distributes body weight more evenly, reducing major pressure points. Contouring also encourages you to sit back in your seat for better posture; this helps reduce upper body stress. We recommend that most users select at least a moderately contoured seat. Neutral Posture's medium and high contoured seats spread your body weight out much better than a traditionally contoured seat, reducing pressure points that come from sitting for long hours. The NPS8000 series chairs offer six different seats and contours to fit your body size and sitting habits.
If you'd like a softer seat or a further reduction in seated pressure, a seat cushion can be ordered with a layer of N'Dulgent memory foam. If you're ordering one of the minimally contoured seats, we strongly recommend adding the N'Dulgent foam.
The NPS8000 chair back has additional options as well.
Choose between a headrest that is height and depth adjustable, or a more streamlined neckrest which is only height adjustable.
Choose casters to go on carpet or hard floors that complement your custom configuration.
Choose the arms that best match your daily habits, tasks, needs and posture changes.

Wide, stable platform provide for ergonomic positioning and support of the feet and legs. It is perfect for drafting height chairs.

Use more than one to create a "staircase" to your seat. The Nextep is available in different heights and with glides or casters.

Design your chair without a footring, or with an 18" black plastic footring or a 20" chrome footring. Consider the Nextep for more flexibility.
