Humanscale Freedom Professional Gaming Chair with Headrest
designed by Niels Diffrient
Now the ultimate task chair is the ultimate gaming chair! Sharing the same characteristics of the Freedom Chair that made it an ergonomic success, this headrest gaming version offers the high performance you expect with added head and neck support and antimicrobial Lotus upholstery.
Freedom's sculpted cushions reduce pressure points and match your unique body contours. Its pivoting backrest meets the everchanging needs of your spine as you play, while the chair's gel arm pads and seats combat muscle fatigue and are the ultimate in long–term comfort and support throughout long gaming sessions. Freedom seamlessly supports your head and neck through any position with its optional headrest so you can focus on your game. Level up for customized maximum performance.
The Freedom chair features a dynamic, articulating headrest to support the head and neck as users recline. It moves with the sitter, so they can change postures without making manual adjustments and stay comfortable in any position.
Self Adjusting Recline:
Freedom eliminates the need for traditional recline mechanisms, which can be bulky and weigh up to 15 pounds. Instead, Freedom uses the sitter’s body weight and the laws of physics to perfectly and automatically adjust recline support for each individual.
Freedom's body-friendly armrests move up and down together, staying with the user during recline for continuous comfort and support. Unlike other chair designs, Freedom's armrests are attached to the back of the chair to ensure synchronous use.
You can't argue with the comfort. This is a unique and very comfortable gaming chair. It may surprise you to hear that Humanscale doesn't really consider itself to be a furniture company. They make furniture, of course, but rather than calling themselves a furniture company, they call themselves an ergonomics company. There isn't an organization out there more committed, driven, and knowledgable about the field of ergonomics than Humanscale.
Humanscale stands for ergonomic furniture. The Freedom Chair is what you might call their Magnum Opus (thus far).
The Freedom Chair - complete comfort with a healthy dose of patriotic inspiration. This is one of the best chairs to come out of the exemplary design shop Humanscale. Humanscale focuses on making products that fit the human body perfectly - that adapt to the needs of the body at work, at rest, and in motion. When you sit in a chair designed by Humanscale, you know that your spine, neck, shoulders, arms and legs are all being taken care of, supported by impeccable designs and informed by the latest ergonomic science. The Freedom Chair is one of their very best.
The standard version of the chair does not come with a traditional headrest (like most office chairs). But for many folks, increased support for the head and neck is among their most crucial ergonomic needs. That's why the folks at Humanscale made sure to include plenty of options for this chair, so you could have a hand in designing the final product. In this case, that means a state of the art ergonomic headrest that attaches easily to the top of the chair and does nothing to take away from the beauty of its form. The Freedom Chair headrest keeps your neck from straining at work, and keeps your head supported at all times so your weight stays balanced.
If you need lots of head and neck support, this is definitely the add-on you need to make the Freedom Chair perfect for you. The rest of the chair can be customized as you see fit - with our online design engine you can choose the color, caster, and base that's right for you!
