Whats the need for the gaming chair?

2020, well, what a year! With millions of people furloughed, people have had time to sit back and enjoy hours of gaming. We are now living in a world where technology never stops improving, and so more and more people are serious gamers, and who doesn’t blame them when there are millions of dollars up for grabs for just playing your favourite video games. If you are a serious gamer, then a gaming chair should be top of your Christmas list this year. Remember to consider the fact that having a gaming chair will not only make you more comfortable, but it will also enhance your gaming performance.

Apart from the aesthetics, which any hard-core gamer will like, a gaming chair is necessary for more than one reason. Let us go through them……

  • Failure to have the right posture during your gaming sessions could be seriously damaging your health. Hand and back pains are common amongst gamers when they do not have the right posture as well as poor circulation, which can of course lead to other health issues.
  • Good posture helps to keep the spinal muscles aligned, enabling them to carry the body’s weight. The longer you sit correctly the better your posture will become. Good posture will also reduce joint stress, increase your energy levels, improve your digestion, and help with breathing issues. Sounds good so far, right?
  • A good gaming chair will also have arm rests, why? Because without them your arms are suspended mid-air holding a controller, causing strain on your back.

Let’s go through how to sit properly in your chair.

  • Ensure your sitting evenly across the seat, distributing your bodyweight evenly.
  • Do not cross your legs, keep your feet flat on the ground.
  • The arms of the chair are there for a reason, rest your elbows on them and relax your shoulders back.
  • Adjust the position of the chair so that it’s close to the desk and adjust the monitor level.
  • A good quality chair will have the option to adjust the height, ensure this is set to allow the knees to bend at a right angle, ensuring the perfect posture.

Notably there are several factors that gamers should put into consideration when selecting an ergonomic gaming chair. Cost may be up there in the top 3.
