Steelcase Leap Chair Plus

item#: STC200

The design of the Steelcase Leap Chair Plus is based on four years of exhaustive research into the way people sit while working. The result is the unique Liveback Technology, which allows users to adjust their chair dynamically, contouring to fit the shape of the spine. The Steelcase Leap Chair Plus is the heavy-duty cousin of Steelcase's immensely popular Leap Chair, intended to support up to 500 lbs for all day use. Steelcase Leap Chairs Plus are unusually comfortable and supportive and offer a wide range of adjustments.

The Steelcase Leap Chair Plus 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.

The Steelcase Leap Plus breaks new ground for heavy-duty chairs, utilizing Liveback Technology, the same that was created for the original Leap Chair. Patented Liveback Technology recognizes that your upper and lower back move independently of each other, and that for maximum comfort the chair needs to support this movement. The result is a seating experience that changes as you shift positions throughout the day. Because of these dynamic support mechanisms, the Steelcase Leap Plus is an excellent choice for users up to 500 lbs and recommended for all day use.

Features - Steelcase Leap Chair Plus

  • Liveback Technology changes the shape of the back of the chair to support your entire spine reducing the chance of lower back sag or a hunched posture which can weaken disc walls, stress back ligaments and cause deterioration of the spine
  • Thermal comfort uses slats in both the chair back and seat in combination with special foam to ensure that the Leap chair offers excellent breathability, so you will still be comfortable regardless of room temperature
  • Adjustable seat depth provides a custom fit so that the depth of your seat supports your legs properly without compromising circulation, and it works in tandem with the flexible seat edge
  • Higher weight capacity and wider seat design
  • Versatile arm positioning moves in and out, forward and back, up and down, and pivot, so you can find the exact position for optimal support and comfort
  • Natural Glide System allows the seat to glide forward as you recline without leaving your optimal vision and reach zone, keeping you better oriented to your work; this encourages you to change your position during the day which is healthier for your spine
  • Upper back force lets you set the amount of resistance you encounter as your recline, so you'll receive the desired support you need

Ergonomic Adjustments

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

By popular demand, the Steelcase Leap Chair Plus is here with all of the ergonomic benefits of a regular Steelcase Leap Chair for heavyset users. With so few heavy-duty ergonomic seating options available, this chair will immediately "leap" to the forefront of that category. The Steelcase Leap Chair Plus is rated for all day use up to 500 lbs.

The Chair
July 19, 2012
Yea, it's a LOT of money for a chair. But $500 for the last one rated 50lbs more than i needed was trash inside 2 months and it took 8 weeks to get a replacement part. the service from the human solution was phenominal as well. now - the chair. I LOVE IT. it's got more options than a 20 year microsoft employee and very well built. well worth the money. i notice an improvement in my back and shoulder pain and that alone makes this chair worthwhile. and look at it - it seems to be smiling at you! jerry
