      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.

      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.

      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 XSM series 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.

      1. wish I had had this kind of chair years ago 5 Star Review

        Posted by on Feb 18th 2016

        Today, Feb 18, 2016, I began using this chair. I'm only 4'10" and have some shoulder and back problems. When I came across this chair when web searching for how I could make my work area more comfortable, I was so excited. The very first time I sat in it a bit earlier, I sighed in relief at finally having a chair that is comfortable, in which I can maintain good back posture, whose seat doesn't cut into the back of my knees, and I can finally put my feet comfortably on the lower "shelf" of the computer desk I "inherited" from previous owners of our home. I'm in a relaxed and comfortable position. I also like how adjustible the 360 degree arm rests are. Yes, the chair costs quite a lot compared to average office chairs, but for those of us who are petite it's a God-send.

      2. Superior in every way! 5 Star Review

        Posted by on Jan 23rd 2015

        I had been using my daughter's chair that came with a child's desk when she was about nine years old, in 1991. It was literally falling apart, but I preferred it to the very nice desk chair my husband bought for us adults a couple of years ago. The "adult chair" was so uncomfortable for me. I'm a little over 5 feet in height, but my legs are really long in proportion to my torso.

        I was a little bit nervous about making such an expensive purchase online, but I was becoming desperate for something I could sit in other than the deteriorating child's chair. I'm so glad I took the chance! This chair is so comfortable! I love it!

        Customer service has been superior. I communicated several times with Claire, who was extremely helpful. She did everything she could to make sure I chose the options that would best fit my situation. It was a real pleasure working with her.

        This has been a very satisfying experience in every way!

      3. Finally a chair my size! 5 Star Review

        Posted by on Aug 18th 2014

        For context, I am just under 5'2", 115 lbs and, proportionally, very short legged. I work in software: often for over 60 hours a week. I have chronic back and neck pain from sitting cross-legged because my feet don't touch the ground properly and without using the armrests because they are uncomfortably far from the seat. It's enough of a problem that I am in physical therapy because of it (folks, this is what happens when you ignore an uncomfortable chair for too long!).

        Between chairs I have bought, and those my employer has, I have tried five other high-end, supposedly petite-person-friendly chairs and none of them fit. This one does! This is what the rest of the world experiences when they sit in an office chair. It's very comfortable. Who knew?


        1. Shallow seat depth. This is critical. You can always use a footrest to compensate for a high seat height, but that does you no good if the seat hits you below your knees so they don't bend properly-and trying to pile up pillows behind you so that your legs reach the end of the seat defeats the purpose of any ergonomic back the chair came equipped with.

        2. Low seat height. Adjustable down to 15" (14.5" would be nice but oh well)

        3. Arms can be brought closer to the chair (the width can be narrowed) so that you can use the arm rests properly. If needed you could bring them in so close that it would be hard for me to get into the seat.

        4. Attached footrest. It's at the perfect height but not so comfortable if you don't wear shoes while working.

        5. Backrest encourages good posture. Every chair claims this. This is the first one that's succeeded with me. It has a comfortable vertical bulge in the middle of the backrest (I have the high one). I was dubious when I looked at it but I've discovered that it encourages me to roll my shoulders back rather than to slump with them forward.

        Long story short: If you are a petite woman who spends a lot of time at a desk, you need this chair! It is worth the investment. And it's cheaper than physical therapy ;)

      4. It fits 5 Star Review

        Posted by on Sep 10th 2009

        I bought this chair as a gift for my mom. She sits a lot at work and chairs never fit her right. She needed a very comfortable chair for a petite woman. This chair fits her so well it is as if it was custom made. Her back stopped hurting.
