Leap offers innovative, adjustable ergonomic support at nearly every point of contact between your body and your chair to meet the daily posture needs of workers and students alike, making Leap an ideal ergonomic solution for our ever-changing world.
The adjustable ergonomic support points offered by Leap include:
- Built-in lumbar support across all Leap chairs
- Optional add-on height-adjustable lumbar support
- Seat with adjustable height and depth
- 4-recline angle stop settings with upright back lock
- Four-dimensional adjustable arm settings (optional)
- The unique LiveBack geometric back support system to encourage healthy posture and support your back in a natural S-shape
Leap’s height can be adjusted via a small lever on the underside of the seat itself, similar to other types of office chairs. To raise your chair, lift your body weight while pulling the lever up. Staying seated while pulling the lever up will lower the chair.
For further adjustments, a smaller lever near the back of the chair can be used to adjust seat depth. The individual arms can also be adjusted to your liking, both with standard height adjustments or with our optional 4-Way adjustment system including height, width, pivot, and depth.
Steelcase Leap offers modern, flexible lumbar support at various points across your spine and upper body. Each Leap includes our revolutionary LiveBack geometric lumbar system that supports your spine in a natural, healthier way while still providing continuous, responsive back tension. Additional, optional height-adjustable lumbar support is available for users who need more flexibility in their seating positions. This lumbar support can be easily adjusted by grabbing the handles on the sides of the back support, and sliding up or down.
Each aspect of Leap is designed to provide maximum flexibility and support across all sitting styles throughout the day, no matter how long you need to sit or where the day takes you. By combining our unique LiveBack system with adjustable seat depth, adjustable armrests, and an optional height-adjustable lumbar support, Leap can keep you sitting more comfortably and in a healthier position than standard office chairs that offer fewer points of adjustment.
While we advise against the use of disinfectants to clean the fabric on your Steelcase Leap chair, there are easy methods to keep your chairs clean and tidy with a mixture of 1 part clear dish detergent and 16 parts water in a spray bottle. Spray your fabric surface lightly and evenly, allowing it to soak through before absorbing the leftover moisture with a wet/dry vac. The metal and plastic parts can be safely cleaned with a damp cloth and a gentle soap as needed, and buffed dry with a soft non-abrasive cloth to prevent streaking.
