A gaming chair is a must for your gaming setup these days. A gaming chair is perfect for getting a better gaming experience. These chairs are made so that you can sit behind your console for a long time without your back or neck hurting. A good gaming chair ensures that you always sit in the right position, because if you don’t, it can cause injuries. In addition, gaming chairs also function perfectly as office chairs, especially in this day and age, when we still often work from home. Even when working from home, it is important that you sit on your chair properly. What is the correct posture in a gaming chair and how do you make sure you get the right one? You can read it in this blog!
A gaming chair has several advantages over regular office chairs. Firstly, they are ergonomic. This means that the chairs can be adjusted to the circumstances and characteristics of people, enabling them to function optimally. Why is this important? Everyone has a different build. A non-ergonomic chair may be fine for one person, but not for another. A gaming chair can be adjusted in such a way that it fits almost everyone perfectly!
Game chairs are covered with cushions which fit your body well. Often the chairs come with an extra adjustable neck and back cushion. These can be adjusted so that you are always sitting comfortably, even if you have to adopt the same position for a long time. Sitting comfortably at all times also reduces stress. If you are in the middle of a blood-curdling game or have a long day of work at home, having problems with your back or neck can result in stress.

Apart from the ergonomics of a game chair, there are some more aspects that are important for a good game chair: seat height, seat depth and seat width.
If these three parts are not good, it can cause injuries. So take a good look at the specifications of the chair when you want to get rid of one. And make sure you adjust the chair so that it fits you perfectly.
A game chair consists of many components. But there are three parts that determine whether or not you have a good posture: the seat, the backrest and the armrests.
A distinction is made between different armrests. Here they are all listed:
– 1D armrest: The 1D armrest is only adjustable in height. With this armrest, you can support your arms at the right height, in a 90° bend.
– 2D armrest: The 2D armrest is adjustable in height and in width. Do you have a wide or narrow torso? The width adjustment allows you to position the armrests closer or further away from your body.
– 3D armrest: The 3D armrest is adjustable in height, width and depth. The top of the armrest can be slid forwards or backwards. This allows you to determine the distance of your armrest from the desk for an ergonomic sitting position.
– 4D armrest: The 4D armrest is adjustable in height, width, depth and has a swivel arm cushion. You can turn it inwards when typing or outwards when using a mouse. This way, your arm always gets the full support.
In short: Make sure your feet are flat on the floor. The back of your knees should not touch the front of the chair. Make sure you have enough room to move between the backrests. Your entire spine should be touching the backrest and your armrests should be adjusted to the right height. If all this is good, you make sure that the chance of neck, shoulder and back complaints is reduced to a minimum.
