Neutral Posture 8000 Ergonomic Chair

item#: NPC306

The Neutral Posture 8000 Chairs are some of the most comfortable and flexible chair series available on the market. Choose the seat, arms and features that best fit your body and comfort needs. The Neutral Posture 8000 Chair is also available with or without an adjustable headrest. This chair is our favorite for tall workstations and sit/stand workstations as it is the only high back chair on the market available with a very tall cylinder and a fully loaded mechanism.

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 five 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.

Connexion Arm

Like it a lot... not in love yet
February 8, 2012
This is a great chair. I was willing to pay for the best, and I did. In general, I'm happy with the purchase. The level of adjustability is awesome, and a must for someone like me who uses the chair for both long hours of work and also gaming. Here is one BIG problem. Be absolutely certain what you're buying while customizing! For instance, I purchased the thoracic support and I regret it. If your doctor or other professional didn't tell you to buy it, then DON'T get it. Also, I'd suggest minimal contour on the seat unless you KNOW for your you want it deeper. Too much contour pushes my legs out horizontally. The problem is, if you don't like the chair, you're stuck because return shipping is a bear, and Human Solution will charge you a 10% restocking fee. on a $1000 chair that's nasty.

I have had this model, with a moderately contoured seat, for years and it has spoiled me to other chairs. Very comfortable during long hours at computer, great back support. 5-stars, for sure.
