Great product!
I love this chair! I sit at a desk all day long which has resulted in back and postural issues over the years. This is the first chair I have sat in that I can actually get comfortable in. Being able to adjust my position throughout the day is really helping. It also has a very comfortable seat. I’m really pleased I opted for this chair as it is definitely worth the money!
A must have
Personally, for me, the chair would not be complete without the headrest ... I think you must order the headrest.
I researched them all this was the best!
I had a back problem and I have to be at a computer alot of the time. This chair changed my working experience overnightFreedom
So happy to have one!
After working for Humanscale many years ago. I was determined to get a Freedom chair when space would allow me to have an office. It was delivered very quickly and it is easy to use and so comfortable! I'm so happy making this purchase. I cannot recommend the chairs more.
Best Chair I Ever Sat In
I love this chair. It is easy to use and adjust, and it feels great!
The best chair I've used I
I was fortunate enough to 'inherit' a Freedom chair from someone who was retiring at work. Even though it was used, I liked it right away. So much, that I wanted one for myself at home. I am a writer and spend many hours a day at the computer. This is the only chair I've found really works for me. I had a horrible chair at home. This year, I was redoing my home office and decided that I'd invest in myself. The first purchase was getting the Freedom chair. I was delighted to find that the customized one I bought for myself was even better than the inherited one at work! Later I got myself a new Uplift desk, too. What a difference it makes for me to have both of these items. When I spend a whole day at work, I used to dread having time in my home office. But no longer. I still need a break from the computer, but having the Freedom chair and Uplift desk make a huge difference.
Great Chair
Chair works perfectly for my height 6.3' Tried different chairs before and this works best for my body.
The Mercedes of chairs!
I ordered this chair for my home workspace because I had developed tendonitis in both shoulders from sitting at my computer day in and day out on an ordinary dining room chair. Now, thanks to the chair (and a lot of physical therapy), my condition has improved markedly, and every time I take a seat, I feel ensconced in luxury and comfort.
Amazing chair!
I suffer from lower back pain and have worked my way through many chairs -- the kneeling chair, the exercise ball chair, a mesh super adjustable 'techy' chair. It wasn't until I bought the humanscale freedom headrest chair that I found a chair I could use all day long.
The HumanScale chairs are fantastic. Everyone in our office has a Freedom or Freedom Headrest and loves them. The HumanScale Liberty chairs in our conference room look great and are comfortable and easy to adjust.
The only chair you will ever need to buy!
As a chronic back sufferer there are good days and there are some very bad days. I have found just after 30 minutes on my Freedom chair makes my pains go away. I can't say enough about the quality and craftsmanship of the chair. Just get one and you too will be a believer.
A chair you can benefit from.
I have had my human scale Freedom Headrest since 2007. This chair has been a Godsent for me. Being disabled from an accident at work, seating had become an issue. I have had numerous chairs over the years, all of which agrvated my injuries. That is until I purchased the Freedom chair. Human Scale has stood by this chair. After owning this chair, the arms failed. I emailed Human Scale and they took down the serial number and told me it was still under warntee. I was prepared to pay for the parts. 10 years and they replaced the arms at no cost to me. That speaks volumes for their reputation. Thank you so much for making this product, and standing behind it!
Perfect Chair
This chair is perfect for our agents. It helps with back support and is very comfortable and is a must have chair for everyone!
Pure Comfort
This chair provides the greatest comfort without the pretension of meaningless extra functions. Add the outstanding customer service when replacing parts and you have an all-around enjoyable experience.
Simply the best working chair in the world
It must be ten years that I've been using this chair and not only has it supported me as I grow older, it is still in perfect condition. Indestructible and worth every penny!
Great chair that adjusts to the way you sit
This is the most comfortable office chair I've used. I love it so much, I got three more for the family!
Comfortable chair
a very nice design and comfortable chair, very recommended for long office work. the head rest also very comfy

Humanscale Freedom Task Office Chair with Headrest

This chair offers you freedom from having to do so many manual adjustments. In fact, when you use it, you will see why the name Freedom befits it so much. When you read any Humanscale freedom chair review, you will see it is a kind of plug-and-play chair. Just put it together and you can sit down, letting the chair find the right posture for you.

This is also the best chair for sharing. Just imagine a chair where all the functions, including the backrest are set manually. It would mean too much tinkering with the chair every time a different user has to sit down on it.

Humanscale Freedom Task Chair Review

When you need a chair to accommodate all users at home or in the office, you will find the Humanscale Freedom chair the best. It can offer the best sitting posture to anyone. The only things that people have to adjust manually are the armrests and the height of the chair.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Review: Summary

  • Limited manual adjustability means that you do not have to tinker with levers and knobs. Just sit and start working straight away. Who wouldn’t like that?
  • Self-adjusting backrest will increase or decrease the tension depending on the weight of the user. Heavier users get more give/tension than slimmer users.
  • When you lean back, the backrest pushes against your lower back, something that leaves you well supported throughout the sitting experience.
  • Armrests are attached to the backrest and so when you recline, the armrests follow the backrest
  • This is a very sturdy chair, designed and constructed to last a long time with sturdy armrests, frame and backrest
  • The seat pad is very comfortable. It has beautiful and well curved edges that do not press against your thighs or the back of your knees. The pad is made of gel that does wear out easily. It also does not lose shape with time and usage.
  • When you do not need to use the arms of this chair, you can just lower them low to the seat level and raise them again when you need to use them.
  • This chair does not come with a headrest. Such an addition is optional though, for a small extra fee. It can make all the difference to some people while others just don’t need it.
  • You can adjust the height of the chair from 16 inches to 21 inches. That should accommodate more than 90 percent of the global population.

What features make the Humanscale Freedom Chair Great?

The first and most important feature in this Humanscale Freedom Chair review is the automated lumbar support. When you sit down and lean back, the chair “decides” what tension to deploy in the backrest that is equal to your weight.

The armrests of this chair are indeed intriguing. They are attached to the backrest by steel tubes. This means that when you lean back, the armrests lean with you. They make it even easier to relax. When you do not need the armrests, just lower them down to the level of the seat. There are those times when you definitely need more space and the armrests just get in the way.

The seat is adjustable. In fact, you can move it forward or backward by touching a small lever that is located behind the seat. With about 2.25 inches of playing room, you will find the perfect sitting position for your work. The edge of the seat is also so well curved so that there is no chance of affecting the blood circulation to the legs.

The backrest has been designed with molded foam. There are two very important things about this backrest:

  • It has a groove for resting or holding your spine in place
  • It is very breathable and comfortable. Nothing more needs to be said about it

This chair is also available in different colors. Maroon, blue, gray and black seem to be the favorites. If you like, perhaps you can even order one with different colors. The brighter colors would be good for your home while neutral and duller colors are good for office settings.

Even with minimal adjustments, the comfort that you enjoy from this chair is worth a mention. It also lets your spine stay in the most natural shape. The breathability and general comfort of this chair are irreplaceable.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Review: benefits that you will enjoy

  • Save time, as there are fewer knobs and levers to tinker with. The adjustability is almost automated. You will only need to adjust the armrests and the height, and the seat.
  • Available in many colors
  • Long warranty on parts and workmanship – 15 years is long enough
  • Frame finish is available in options such as graphite, polished aluminum and titanium
  • Armrests do swivel inwards so that petite people can also get to use them

  • Users complain that modern Freedom chairs have too much plastic as compared to older ones – pre2014
  • The price for this chair is steep

Humanscale Freedom Chair Price

To have this beauty gracing your office space, you will have to pay anything from $800, probably more depending on the features that you choose. For example, the one with metal base plus headrest costs more than the one with plastic base.
