The Steelcase Leap chair is available with or without arms. There are some applications where arms get in the way of tasks. For computer users we recommend Steelcase arms because they're some of the best on the market and they can lower to about thigh level. The highly adjustable arms move in and out, forward and back, up and down and pivot, so you can find the exact position for optimal support and comfort.
