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.
