Gaming Seats

0

Gaming seats encourage healthy sitting posture, which is something any hardcore gamer will no doubt appreciate. They feature a number of different mechanisms; their importance for you depends mainly on how much time you spend gaming, how long is your average gaming session, and how much time you spend at the computer in general. When buying a gaming seat, also consider the upholstery material, base design, and the lumbar support.

What should I know before buying a gaming seat?

The key parameter when choosing a gaming seat is the type of mechanism. The more time you spend gaming, the more adjustability and ergonomics you need. What we are talking about is sometimes called active or dynamic sitting, when your body stays in motion all day long instead of holding a fixed position. Active sitting helps you avoid stiff muscles and back strain, exercises your abdominal and back muscles and eliminates the pressure on your tailbone.

Choose the mechanism type depending on how much time you spend sitting

  • Rocking mechanism allows the seatpan and backrest move together in a “rocking chair” motion. Neither the seatpan nor the backrest angle are adjustable. These are not suitable for long everyday sitting.
  • Tilt mechanism lets you lock/unlock the rocking mechanism, which allows you to choose between sitting in a rocking chair and classic chair. If you game a few hours every day, this is a right mechanism for you.
  • Multi-lock system also enables you to lock/unlock the mechanism, except you can do that with a chair tilted into some position. If you feel better when your chair is tilted at an angle, you can simply lock it into that angle and relax. This mechanism type supports healthy dynamic sitting and is suitable for frequent use.

If you spend long hours at the computer every single day, we recommend choosing
an office or ergonomic chair with a synchronous or asynchronous mechanism.

Upholstery

  • Leather tends to make the best impression and looks very stylish, but it is not particularly comfortable, especially in hot summer months.
  • Fabric and especially mesh upholstery provides great ventilation, but it in winter months it may be seen as a disadvantage.
  • Polyurethane is a combination of PVC and PU and it is both highly breathable and durable.

Base material

The base is the key component of an office chair. A standard plastic base is both the cheapest and most common. For heavier people or frequent use, we recommend choosing a more durable material - chrome, aluminium, or some other metal.

Lumbar support

Supports your body in the lumbar region and allows for a healthier sitting position by adapting to the shape of your back and replicating the natural position of the body in a sitting position.

Maximum weight capacity

When choosing an office chair, pay close attention to the maximum weight capacity as specified by the manufacturer and do not exceed it. In fact, the weight capacity should be at least slightly higher than your weight. This prevents unnecessary wear and tear and ensures proper functioning of the chair.
