Neutral Posture offers a variety of seats and seat contouring to suit your needs. The reason for considering a more contoured seat is that a contoured seat better fits your bottom, better distributing your body weight, reducing the chance of pressure points. Contouring also encourages you to sit back in your seat for better posture and reduced upper body stress. We recommend that most users select at least a moderately contoured seat.

If you'd like a softer seat or a further reduction in seated pressure, your seat can be ordered with a layer of N'Dulgent memory foam. If you're ordering one of the minimally contoured seat, we strongly recommend adding the N'Dulgent foam.

Medium seat Minimal contour 21'' W x 19'' D
Moderate contour 23'' W x 20'' D
Deep contour 24'' W x 19'' D
Large seat Minimal contour 23'' W x 21'' D
Deep contour 25'' W x 22'' D


A variety of armrest options are available to suit your unique needs. Choose the arms that best match your daily habits, tasks, needs, and posture changes.

Neutral Posture Arms

5-way 360° Arms [0]

The 0 Arm offers height, width, depth, and pivot adjustment. The arm pads also slide in and out, as well as forward and backward so that you can find the perfect position to rest your arms. The 0 arm also features 24 positive-lock angle positions in a 360° range.

360° Swivel Arms with Oversized Urethane Arm Pads [3]

The 3 Arm features 360° swivel range with 22 positive-lock angle positions. Height, width, and pivot adjustment will allow you to find a good working position in relation to your desk or keyboard tray. Oversized, urethane arm pads offer a larger support surface.

Swing-away Arms [4]

The 4 Arm swings down and out of the way when not needed. In addition, this arm offers height and width adjustment. This is a great option for chairs that will be used by multiple people, some of whom may not want to use arm rests.

Oversized Black Vinyl Arm Pads [6]

The 6 Arm offers the same features as the 3 arm, just with oversized black vinyl arm pads instead of urethane arm pads. Height, width, and pivot adjustment in addition to 22 positive-lock angle positions in a 360° range will make certain that you find the perfect resting spot for your arms.

Oversized Fabric/ Leather Arm Pads [7]

The 7 Arm offers the same features as the 3 and 6 arms, just with a fabric or leather covering to match your chair upholstery.

Friction Tracker [8]

The 8 Arm offers the largest depth range of all the arms because it pivots on two axes. This is the best choice for users who want the most flexibility positioning their arms inward or outward. These arms are padded & upholstered to provide maximum comfort.

Ball Bearing Tracker [9]

The 9 Arm tracks your arm throughout a full range of motion. Your forearm will rest in the cuff as you move to type or mouse at your desk. This is a great option for users who engage in intensive arm movement tasks and need the most support. It is not recommended for general use.

360° Swivel [P]

The P Arm offers height, width, and pivot adjustment as well as 22 positive-lock angle positions in a 360° range. This is the same movement offered in the 3, 6, and 7 Arms just without the oversized arm pad.


Thoracic Support

The thoracic spine refers to your mid and upper-back. Add a thoracic support to the back of your chair to encourage good posture and reduce upper body pain.


Memory Foam

Standard Foam

The Neutral Posture NPS8000 features thickly padded high density foam for a plush seat cushion and back.

N'dulgent Memory Foam

N'dulgent memory foam can be added to the seat or entire chair to add an additional layer of padding for a soft, cushiony feel that doesn't compromise support.

TheraGel Memory Foam

TheraGel Memory Foam is Neutral Posture's newest addition. TheraGel is a visco-elastic memory foam with microgel beads that absorb your body heat to allow for cooler air flow. TheraGel Memory Foam will keep you cool and supported throughout the entire workday.



Specialty caster options let you restrict or improve mobility, optimizing the NPS8000 chair for use with different floor types and applications.

  • Carpet Casters (standard)
  • Hard Floor Casters

  • Hard Floor Brake Out
  • Chrome Carpet Casters
  • Chrome Hard Floor Casters


Various chair base styles are available, allowing for an additional touch of customization to better match your office furniture.

  • 26" polished aluminum
  • 27" brushed aluminum


Multiple cylinder height options can be used with the NPS8000 chair, providing an optimal seat height for a wide variety of users.

Standard 5'' height range 17'' - 22'' H
Short 3'' height range 16'' - 19'' H

    Worth the Investment

    Posted by Mike on Mar 26th 2019

    I bought this chair in April 2017 after months of consideration and trying to find a chair in the $500 range. I finally made a life decision to spend around $1000 on a Neutral Posture 8000 and I have no regrets. I would absolutely buy another one if needed. I sit at my desk for up to 8 hours a day and I am now comfortable with no butt or back fatigue. I see there are limited reviews on this chair, so here is mine to help the next undecided person.

    Before this chair I tried a Herman Miller Aeron with a lumbar pad. My back hurt after a few days and I couldn't use it any longer. The back pain was new to me, my issue before the Aeron was butt pain.

    I am a 6' 200 lb male. Here were my custom options:

    Neutral Posture 8000 Ergonomic Chair
    - Arms = Oversized black vinyl arms [6]
    - Base = Standard 26 inch black [B0] or 28 inch black [B12] for 7
    inch cylinder
    - Casters = Carpet casters standard [C0]
    - Chair Height = Standard 5'' cylinder [L3]
    - Connexion Arm = No Connexion tablet arm
    - Fabric = Cloud 9 - Dark Horizon
    - Free Ergonomic Training = Add ergonomic training
    - Headrest = No headrest
    - Padding = Add N'dulgent foam to seat
    - Seat = Medium seat, moderate contour [6]
    - Thoracic Support = Standard chair back Add N'dulgent foam to
    seat only NPS-8660-N-C0-B0-L3-Cloud 9 - Dark Horizon

    One of my favorite features is the upgraded over-sized arms. They are like a pillows for my forearms. I have the arms turned 180 so that I can wheel myself under my desk until the arms touch the desk with perfectly matched height. There is no height difference between the arm pad and desk. When I use my mouse, my wrist is in perfect alignment with my forearm. Perfect posture. The arm pad to desk alignment (while being able to slide under the desk) was a requirement of mine.

    See the other (limited) reviews on how to choose the seat firmness and shape. I chose "Medium seat, moderate contour" and added N'dulgent foam (to the seat only, not the back). I am happy with the choice.

    Like it a lot... not in love yet

    Posted by David on Feb 8th 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.
