The Gaming Chair that Outperforms the Competition
Look good, play good right?!?! Same theory goes for your gaming chair seat. Want to see how your gaming chair seat ranks?
Let the competition begin…..Stand up and take a look at your gaming chair seat.
What material is the seat made of? Mesh? Fabric? Upholstered Foam covered in leather? What does the shape look like?
B: Rounded from side to side?
C: Contoured like it matches the contours of your backside?
If you answered C, you win this category as the contoured cushion is the best solution to go up the rankings in your gaming career!
Science tells us that we need to take pressure off you sit bones with a contoured seat.
We need to take the pressure off these sit bones to increase our comfort.2
Underneath your sit bones (Coccyx and ITs) there are teeny tiny receptors that when they are not happy and pressed, they run and tell the Brain, and then the body moves to take away that stimulus.
Do you ever notice that you move a lot in your gaming chair throughout the day?
You are essentially fidgeting and unweighting these receptors, and this can take away from your focus at work.
A review by Vink et al. found that seven studies indicated that the human body seems to compensate for discomfort by changing body posture or making postural movements.1
Even our pain receptors dictate how our posture is in our gaming chair. We subconsciously roll our pelvis backwards to protect and take the pressure off the sit bones. This results in sliding forward and a slumped or “Shrimp” posture that can hurt your body and your hurt your ability to outscore your competition.
Why these cushion solutions don’t stack up
Rounded from side to side is not the solution and ties at the bottom of our list to prevent pain. You sit on the center and the sides of the cushion come up an create increased pressure or this redness you see on the pressure mapper above.
Flat shaped office seats either covered by fabric or leather come in at the 2nd worst on our list to prevent pain. They do not contour your backside to take the pressure off the sit bones. Take a look at this pressure mapper to show the pressure on the sit bones located in the middle of the bottom area on each side.
Contour seat with thick foam is the clear winner in the pack is the to take the pressure off your pain receptors and sit bones. The thick foam with pressure relieving technology, supporting your legs in a neutral position, you can game longer without pain and stop fidgeting to stay focused on your craft.
You want to see blue/green color to indicate less pressure and more comfort, not RED.
