User guide link:


  • This is a highly adjustable chair but limited cushioning on seat and back with plastic frame so some users do not find it comfortable enough.
  • Great armrest adjustability.
  • Good for smaller users as seat pan adjusts very short and chair goes slightly lower than some others.
  • Fits a wide variety of people because seat pan is wide (although armrests adjust in) and 3” seat slider range.
  • Available in a Plus model for larger users.
