How to Choose the Best Gaming Chair
Monday, 26 October 2020

If you’re a gamer, then you’ll know that sitting for prolonged periods can take its toll on your body. The same position and lack of movement from your chair can cause stress on the muscles, which leads to aches and pains, so how do you overcome this.

One of the best ways is to get a decent chair. After all, you’ll be sitting in it for hours, and you’re going to want something comfortable to prevent interrupted play. So, what do you need to look out for when choosing the perfect option? Take a look below:
 
 

1. Material

 
Most people usually choose chairs based on aesthetics, and this is where the material comes in. While it may appear nice to look at, it could actually cause some issues if you’re sitting in it for a long time. Choose material that doesn’t make you sweat or feel uncomfortable. While leather may be hard-wearing, it could also make you feel hot after long periods, and faux leather could have the same effect. Plus, think about the padding, as anything rigid will not be comfortable.
 

2. Ergonomics

 
One of the most important aspects of gaming for hours on end is the strain it puts on your arms, neck, back, and wrists. To help alleviate this, looking for a chair that has excellent ergonomic features is a great solution. Check out the backrest and arms rests, plus make sure it is adjustable, so you’re sitting at the right height. In regard to adjustability, be sure to consider the main areas on the chair that can be adjusted. Look for suitable height, armrest, and backrest controls to get the right sitting position. Some chairs also come with built-in lumbar support that can also be adjusted to suit your sitting style.
 

3. Comfort is key

 
If you’re looking for something super comfortable but has all the best features of a chair without the actual chair aspect, opt for a supportive pillow such as these examples at husbandpillow.com. You can place them anywhere that you want to sit, including the floor or your bed, and still get a supportive bolster to make gaming super comfortable.
 

4. Space

 
Gaming chairs can take up a lot of space, so selecting one that fits into your room without being cramped is essential. If you’re thinking of a chair for your dorm room, be sure to take measurements before ordering as you don’t want to turn up, and it doesn’t fit.
 

5. Price and value

 
Of course, another aspect of gaming chair is the price. There are many suitable options available at affordable prices, but they can be expensive, depending on the type you choose. Cheapest is not necessarily best in this case, as you need something supportive and fit for the job. Don’t be tempted by too many gimmicky features as this can push up the price. For example, if you already have a good sound system for your gaming system, do you need speakers in your chair?

"Take care, don't fight, and remember: if you do not choose to lead, you will forever be led by others. Find what scares you, and do it. And you can make a difference, if you choose to do so."
