Ergonomic Essentials – Humanscale Feature
Humanscale is the premier designer and manufacturer of ergonomic products that improve health and comfort at work. Award-winning office solutions – including self adjusting seating, sit/stand desks, monitor arms and task lighting – inspire movement and support the user in their every posture.
Sustainability of both design and materials is at the heart of what Humanscale do, and they solve functional problems as simply and elegantly as possible while consuming less of the Earth’s limited resources.
Chairs & Stools
At Humanscale, they believe that the highest level of functionality is achieved through simplicity. With their ergonomic home and office chairs, they replace heavy, complex mechanisms with the sitter’s own body weight and the laws of physics to encourage movement, providing the most comfortable chair available.
Humanscale develop chairs without knobs and levers, so they’re incredibly easy to use. All chairs allow the user to change postures effortlessly without operating any manual controls. Designing ergonomic chairs that are easy to use ensures that they are used in a correct, healthy way.
Armrests that move with you
Most office chairs feature arms that are attached to the seat, which do not provide support when the user reclines or moves from posture to posture. Humanscale designs all of its desk chairs with the arms attached to the back, so when the sitter moves, the arms are in a healthy, ergonomic position every time.
All Day Comfort
A soft seat cushion is often comfortable for a short period of time but uncomfortable when the user sits on it for many hours. Humanscale’s seat cushions are engineered to be denser than their competitors’ to offer all day comfort. Humanscale also pioneered the use of gel in seat cushions. Because gel doesn’t compress, it supports the sitter’s body and maximizes comfort over many hours.
Weight Sensitive Recline
Humanscale ergonomic desk and office chairs are perfectly adjusted for every user, as if the chair was custom made for you. In lieu of traditional tension mechanisms, which can weigh as much as 15 pounds and be made of up to 40 parts, task chairs use the laws of physics and the sitter’s own body weight. As a result, the chair automatically reads the weight of the user, allowing for the mechanism to provide perfect recline with the correct tension for every individual.
Humanscale’s ergonomic chairs are designed to look as good in ten years’ time as they do today.
- Textiles exceed 150,000 double rubs in the Wyzenbeek Test, which is five times the industry standard.
- Textiles attach to the cushion without adhesives, which prevents wrinkling over time and is better for the environment.
- Arm caps feature a separate foam insert, so they will not tear.
- Plastics have a texture that prevent scratching.
- None of Humanscale chair surfaces are painted or treated, so there’s no chipping or scratching.
- Humanscale go to great lengths to ensure all the components of our chairs hold up to wear and tear, while maintaining a minimal visual aesthetic.
- They use fewer parts in their ergonomic chairs to reduce the impact on the environment.

Monitor Arms & Integrated Docks
In today’s fast-paced, fully connected digital world, there’s no time for discomfort. Humanscale’s ergonomic monitor arms and mounts enable instant personalization of the workspace for improved comfort, health, and productivity.
Humanscale monitor arms not only promote a clutter-free workspace, they support a healthier, more ergonomic working posture. Users are encouraged to align the monitor at the correct height for them, which helps prevent eye and neck strain. When paired with M/Connect™ — the first-ever integrated adjustable monitor arm base and docking station of its kind — they are even more conducive to collaborative and hot-desking environments.
All Humanscale monitor arms are ultra-sleek, exceptionally durable, and easy to adjust. From the best-selling, high-performance M2 ® monitor arm to M/Flex — the world’s most scalable monitor system — Humanscale offers a solution for every environment and hardware support need.
And meet the revolutionary new monitor arm line: M2.1, M8.1 and M10. These ergonomic monitor arms were designed for unprecedented adaptability in the agile workspace and instantly improve the comfort, health and productivity of any workspace. Featuring innovations like Humanscale’s patented Weight-Compensating Spring Technology and Smart Stop functionality, these adjustable monitor arms enable the personalization and flexibility needed for today’s evolving workplaces.
Humanscale believe that balanced movement is the key to wellness at work. Helping to create an engaged, active workspace, Humanscale sit/stand products were designed to make changing postures effortless. Switching between seated and standing postures throughout the day is not only good for energy and productivity, but for overall health. Studies have shown that regular standing can burn calories, have a positive impact on well-being and prevent diseases such as heart disease and high blood pressure.
For those seeking a completely new work surface, Float, Humanscales sit and stand desk, is the ultimate standing desk. Those with established work surfaces can easily transform their desks with the height-adjustable solution QuickStand, a sit stand desk converter. Quickstand Lite has a more minimal footprint and is the perfect sit/stand solution for home or corporate workspaces, temporary hot desks, collaborative workstations and check-in points.
Created to be simple functional and to stand the test of time, Humanscale products allow users to adopt a healthy and balanced level of activity as they work.
Humanscale patented keyboard systems have effortless height and angle adjustment. Promoting negative tilt keying, the keyboard platforms will not go into a positive tilt.
Humanscale keyboard trays are solidly anchored to any work surface, and shape to specific user needs. Hypoallergenic Gel palm supports offer height and durability, and are designed to be compatible with human skin.
Humanscale offers three negative-tilt keyboard systems, from 5G to our latest 6G, which combines easy dial-a-tilt and height adjustability with the strongest, most stable arm on the market. Humanscale’s under desk keyboard trays come in many different configurations, including left/right customisation, to support any user need.
