Knowing that a truly ergonomic chair could make more of a difference to user health than most any other product, Humanscale entered the task seating market in 1999 with the Freedom chair, which has won 10 design awards to-date - including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design Review 2000 competition. The Freedom chair has revolutionized the task chair industry and has set new standards for task chair performance and functionality. Because of its honest design aesthetic, Freedom has also been seen in dozens of feature films and is a regular in prime-time, being featured on hit television shows such as 24, CSI Miami and Boston Legal.
In 2004, Humanscale launched its extremely popular Liberty chair line. With its patent-pending Form-Sensing Mesh Technology, the Liberty chair takes the benefits of mesh seating – breathability, durability, sustainability and aesthetic appeal – to the next level, providing exceptional comfort and automatically customized lumbar support without an external lumbar device. To date, Liberty and the new Liberty Side Chair have won over 12 design awards, including Best of NeoCon Gold and ID Design Distinction Awards for each.
Most recently, Humanscale’s 13-member in-house design team, led by Design Director Manuel Saez, has continued Humanscale’s history of innovation, by designing such award-winning products as the M7 monitor arm, L2 notebook manager and FM500 foot rest. Housed in a new facility in the heart of Manhattan, the Design Studio features a team-oriented workstation design that encourages idea sharing and communication among all team members. It also boasts a state-of-the-art machine shop / prototyping lab that facilitates the speed and efficiency by which concepts can be realized into 3-dimensional and functional prototypes. The Design Studio works very closely with Humanscale’s in-house ergonomists to ensure that all designs are based on the latest human factors research and knowledge.
Humanscale has always been committed to environmental sustainability and continually strives to design, engineer and manufacture products that consume less of the Earth’s limited resources. This is accomplished by creating products that weigh less (i.e. require less material), have fewer parts (which requires fewer manufacturing processes) and contain a high percentage of recycled and recyclable content. Additionally, wherever possible, Humanscale utilizes aluminum as its material of choice. Their aluminum is 100% recycled and recyclable which never degrades, enabling it to be reused over and over again. Using aluminum usually costs them more than plastics, but their products are better for it. And so is the environment.

This footrest is well-built and comfortable. The massage balls are a nice feature! I also like that you can easily rock it back and forth.
I love this product

Wayfair cancelled my order over price discrepancy
Lost Customer from Texas
I was looking forward to trying this product, so I ordered it from this website for the price they posted. I got an email stating that my order had been cancelled without any explanation. I wrote back asking why my order had been cancelled and got a reply stating that there was a price discrepancy and that they have the right to cancel an order for any of many reasons. Apparently, they had posted the price for 10 less than they wanted to sell it for. They cancelled my order over 10. Then, they offered me 5 off... Needless to say, it really isnt about the 5 or 10 for me. Id rather pay a few bucks more and work with an honest, customer oriented company.
Great to have below your desk during an 8 hour work day

There is nothing better than a little foot massage in the middle of the work day. Also, great for folks with active feet like myself.
Well made relief

This product is great for me at work when sitting for long periods of time. The combination of the massage balls and the tilting foot board make the overall affect beneficial.
I like it. Best price online [...]
HomeOfficeDude from Orlando– Verified Buyer
Overall I like it. It's about 1/2 inch too high even at it's lowest settings. It's a quality product except for the stain they've applied is chipping or rubbing off already on the edges. I will need to try to match it or touch it up with a brown marker from time to time. It is helping my bad back. This is a good value. [...] I'm glad I thought to look on line before buying it there.
