Calling all gamers (and non-gamers who happen to spend hours sitting in front of the computer)! It’s time that we pay attention to the way we sit and what we sit on. The long-term adverse effects of spinal misalignment due to prolonged sitting, along with back pains and muscle fatigue can be deal with, with a chair switch.
Here’s how you can buy the best cheap gaming chair this year.
Buying Guide For The Perfect Gaming Seat
There are dozens and dozens of gaming seats that flood the market and most, if not all of them, have pristinely chic designs. At any rate, try your hardest not to be hypnotized by aesthetic alone. What you should look for is adjustability.
These chairs are mass-produced so there’s no room for customization. What you see is most definitely what you get. As a result, you’ll end up with chairs that have the same size, height, and overall build across the board. And this poses a challenge because everybody is of different shapes and sizes.
For this reason, having one that’s adjustable is what will make all the difference. You’ll be able to position it in a way that’s in parallel with your height. First, adjust the back portion. Secondly, adjust the seat so that your feet are flat against the floor and your legs, in an almost 90-degree angle.
2. Ergonomic or Contour Design
This has to do with the manner in which the chair “curves” much like how your spine when sitting or correctly, should. Watch out for this especially in the lower back portion of the seat. This acts as support against your weight so that pressure will be lessened around this area, along with your spine.
Notice how some people put cushions behind them, and specifically behind the lower back? You’ll feel fewer back pains in supporting this part of your upper body and might even be able to prevent them altogether.
Here’s a feature that many seem to forgo. Balance. There’s a misconception about gaming chairs, that it’s natural for them to be wobbly and easily off-balance when you move. We’re here to tell you that this isn’t so. In fact, the opposite is what’s safest and healthiest for you.
Therefore, be sure that the seat you’ll choose is stable. It shouldn’t sway or quaver when you move in any direction. Chairs with this feature are frequently the more expensive kind. Still, they’re the better solution to fight against long-term back problems.
Besides this, a stable chair is less-accident prone. Slipping off of seats and suddenly being off-balance can cause accidents that may injure you. Evade them with well-balanced gaming chairs.
4. Material Type
PVC leather, also known as faux leather, has an exquisite finish to it. It looks sleek and brings that allure to the appearance of a gaming chair. On that note, it isn’t the ideal material to select because it traps heat. During warm days, PVC leather will let you feel warmer as it isn’t breathable. In contrast, it will capture high temperature and bounce it off towards you.
As an alternative, go for a mesh fabric. Air can pass through them effortlessly and is an excellent cooling material even as compared to regular fabric.
