I used the Freedom Task chair for about 4 years at my previous job. I never really thought much of it until I started working from home a few days a week. Only then did I realize that the chair in my home office caused severe discomfort after about an hour or two of use. I asked one of my old colleagues to find out what type of chair was in my old office. I bought the Freedom Task, and the difference was immediately apparent. I never thought I'd spend this much on a chair, but it was well worth the investment.
Chair fit seems to be a very person specific thing. This chair has become my go to chair for people with comfort issues. The people I introduce this chair to in our firm never let it go once they sit in it! Yes I have one and have sat in quite a few.
With so many options to customize your perfect desk chair, this is just the best chair ever! I can sit for extremely long periods with the comfy gel seat. The superb back support and adjustable soft leather armrests contribute to good posture with no stress points. I am so happy with my Freedom Task chair that I gave one to my husband. Now we are both happy customers. (Plus customer service is the best!) Double thumbs up!
Have to say a great chair all in all. But as with anything there are a couple of things to point out. 1. Before you order make sure you know if you want the headrest as there are two chairs (one with a head rest and one without) to order. I didn't read carefully enough and am now unable to add on. 2. The package is a bit heavy as it is shipped in one piece.
Love the arms that easily adjust height and also love that all you have to do to recline is lean backwards.
I have two Freedom task chairs, one purchased more than 10 years ago that I have been so pleased with, I bought a second last year for my spouse. For my old arthritic spine these chairs are the best I have been able to find.
May recommend, though, alignment never quite matches my frame, causing downward drift that requires multiple posture corrections during use.
