Your Chair Should Work For You

Keeping you comfortable and supporting better posture. The seat recline function on the Balance Basic Mid-Back office chair was designed with you – and your ergonomic comfort – in mind. Easily adjustable, you can change (and lock) the angle of the recline which encourages blood flow through the pelvis. When shoulders are back, the chest is open, thereby exchanging more oxygenated blood to the brain. This helps you feel more alert and productive.

Ergonomic Back Support

The Balance Basic Mid-Back features a High-Density foam backrest with a ratchet back height adjuster and an independent back angle adjustment lever – all designed to fully support your back for optimal comfort.

The back angle feature allows the backrest to move with you or to be reclined and locked. So you can sit back when you’re not focused on a task, which also encourages blood flow through the pelvis.
Note The Balance Basic does not come with Schukra® Adjustable Lumbar Support. The chair in the video is not exactly as shown.

Contoured Seat With High-Density Foam

If you’re not comfortable, your productivity and concentration will decrease. Following your body’s shape, the LIFEFORM® contoured seat was designed to reduce pressure on the sit bones and soft tissue around the thigh and buttock area. Add to that our signature front waterfall edge to promote better circulation, and you have a chair that distributes your weight more evenly.

The forward tilt also gives you the freedom to change tasks easily while the seat moves with you. You can stay comfortable, be more focused and, ultimately, more productive.

Soft Touch Arm Pads

The Balance Basic Mid-Back office chair comes with soft-touch arm pads to keep you comfortable and reduce pain and pressure points on your arms. You can easily adjust the height, depth and width of our arm pads. With a chair that promotes better posture while being comfortable, you’ll notice your concentration, energy, and productivity increase.

It’s just what you’ve been waiting for.


Upgrade And Add A headrest

If you have neck or upper back pain and need a bit more support, you can add a latitude headrest, which offers infinite adjustments.

Arm Pad Swivel Function

Providing comfortable support, the extension allows you to swivel the arm pad 360 degrees, allowing you to position your pad as you need it throughout the day.

*Only available with Ergo Arm Pad upgrade.

Armpad Swivel Function

Coccyx (Rear Seat) Cut Out

Core-flex® dual flex seat

Incorporating a small range of natural motion into a chair so core muscles are stimulated allows for improved comfort and increased circulation. Research also shows that movement is also important for thinking and creativity, spinal fitness, and the maintenance of a healthy metabolism.
