How to pick the perfect gaming chair

Long gaming sessions mean that a comfortable chair should be high on your priority list. Gaming chairs are designed primarily for the needs and comfort of gamers - thought has been put into about how gamers sit, how they move, and what they need most from their chair. To cope with the extended time spent, gaming chairs feature ergonomic padding, higher backrests, winged shoulder support, lumbar support pads and adjustable armrests, helping to support the body in the best possible way.

The ultimate in long term gaming comfort

Dimensions

When it comes to height, body shape, size, and weight every individual is different. Luckily most manufacturers provide information like seat cushion width and depth and backrest cushion width and height - as they are the non-adjustable elements of the chair it is key that these dimensions work for you.

Materials

The materials a chair is made from may have a significant impact on its overall comfort, especially over prolonged hours sat in it. A good quality steel frame will offer superior support, and an increased weight tolerance, whereas high quality foam padding will provide good support for many years of use.

Adjustability

Chair adjustability is key for maximised comfort - most chairs will feature seat tilt, height and back rest adjustment. These can be enhanced by arm rest adjustment in various ways to create the perfect sitting position for extended periods.

Other key factors in gaming chairs are optional extra features such as headrest and lumbar cushions, as these will offer a greater degree of comfort for prolonged usage. These further bolster the body as muscles tire from being in a similar position for extended periods of time.
