Update - August 30, 2023: We are currently estimating 6 to 8 weeks for new orders of Embody chair headrests

What's the story behind this headrest?
Our team of designers and engineers, based in West Michigan, have spent their careers in the office furniture industry, inspired by companies like Haworth, MillerKnoll, and Steelcase. We believe that well-designed headrests are essential for good postural health and ergonomics, especially when reclining.

We have watched and participated in moving office task seating from the cubicle into new settings, like the home.

Just as height adjustable desks undeniably allow for better postural health, well designed headrests do the same. So, with postural health and a passion for ergonomics in mind -  we concluded that chairs are better with a properly designed headrest, especially when you recline.

We're looking forward to you experiencing our new headrest first hand. The benefits and comfort of ergonomically optimized cervical support for the Embody chair are within reach.

Why did this take so long?
Designing and engineering the headrest from scratch and organizing production with suppliers has been laborious, especially during the pandemic, but we've refused to cut corners. We're a small company with limited resources, but we believe you'll be happy with the results.

Once again, thank you for your support, and we look forward to providing you with a high-quality headrest for your Embody chair!

How do I determine my fabric type and color?
You should have a sticker on the underside of the top of your chair. This sticker will have the color code for your fabric. You can cross reference that with the list below.

Love the Headrest

Headrest is fantastic and well built, however, the photos online for the different fabric types are misleading. The sync black fabric and Rhythm Black Fabric have the same photos on the website. Turn out I needed the Rhythm but ordered the sync by mistake. If there is anyway I can get help with exchanging the heads that would be amazing!

Headrest for Embody Chair - Sync Fabric

Excellent Quality and Met Expectations

The quality of the headrest is excellent and is a perfect match for the chair. If I didn't know, I'd assume the headrest was made by Herman Miller.

Wei Cheng Lan

It was worth waiting for. Really good.

Donald Sun
Love everything about it!

Been waiting for a head rest for my embody for years now. Glad I found this company. No complaints honestly after super tightening the bolt to the desired position. Highly recommend this as this is a must have for all embody owners.

Amazing head rest

Its really comfy and adjustable. Only criticism I have is that I wish the head rest would have a bit more resistance than it already has when putting my head back. I have a bigass head so it a bit heavy and when i lean back and rest my head it goes a lil more back than i would like other than that been a pleasure using it

Why are you still reading the review section go buy it now!

The chair alone is excellent but with with the Altas headrest add on , the chair takes on a whole new level of comfort.

Timothy Yuen
Comfortable and well made

A comfortable and well made head rest.

The written installation instructions were a bit confusing but looking at the included video tutorial made things a bit clearer.

Michał Matuszewski
Absolutely fantastic

The headrest looks and feels like an integral part of the chair. I don't know how I managed without it!

Best Thing To Happen To Embody

I've loved my chair from day 1. My only complain have been the lack of head rest. Adding this to the chair made it perfect. I am so glad this product exists.


All of our headrests are designed with ergonomics at the forefront.
Trust us, your spine will thank you.


Adjust position vertically, horizontally, and tilt to perfection. Adjust it to your personal preference, no matter your height.


Herman Miller should sell this with the chair. The engineering is incredible...
I recommend this 100%.

Brandon Middleton

Very comfortable, easy to adjust height and extension... Installation was quick and looks like it belongs on the chair.

Lane Roathe

This is the perfect addition to my home office! I thought I had it all with the Aeron. This is a must have!
