What are gaming chairs used for?
To give the user good support while playing or working, avoiding back pain . They are specifically designed to be worn for long periods of time, so they are very comfortable and breathable.
Companies buy standard office chairs mainly because they are cheap. This is despite the many studies pointing to the dangers of poor sitting habits. A fixed sitting position limits movement and exercises muscles. Muscles must work harder to support the neck, trunk, and shoulders, which accelerates fatigue.
One of the benefits of gaming chairs is that they have a high back that offers lumbar support . Thanks to that high backrest, your back and shoulders are fully supported during long hours of work or play.
Benefits and advantages of the gaming chair
The main advantage is its comfort . Not all of them are necessarily ergonomic, but they do offer lumbar support. They also come with armrests and other features to maximize comfort.
These are other advantages of gamer chairs:
- Unique design and style
- Steel structure or frame (in most cases)
- Reclining seat back (up to 180º in some cases)
- Many adjustable parts: armrests, cushions, height, tilt, etc.
- 2-year parts warranty on most models and 10-year frame warranty in some cases
- heavy and resistant
Disadvantages of the gaming chair
Not all are ergonomic . All gaming chairs come with a lumbar cushion for comfort, but without the cushion, the seat back is not ergonomically designed.
Unique design is not for everyone . Gamer chairs are made in the likeness of race car seats. But some prefer a more discreet design. In addition, some models can become uncomfortable for users with wide shoulders or large thighs, since they usually have “wings” on the side of the seat for aesthetic reasons that reduce space.
The price may be too much . Compared to standard office chairs, a gaming chair can be quite expensive.
