Gamers know that: At the beginning, everything is still good when playing. But after a while in the chair, you just don't know how to sit. Everything, the back, the neck, the whole body hurts. A real pro gamer who wants to win the race in gaming needs a real gaming chair. But not every gaming chair is a good gaming chair. In this category you will find back-friendly gaming office chairs from HARA STUHL that still meet these requirements. Our specialist advisors will be happy to help you find the right gaming chair for your back.
Not all gaming chairs are created equal
An ambitious gamer always pays attention to the perfect gaming equipment. The gamer PC must have the best hardware, the gaming mouse must have a precise pressure point when playing, even in hectic situations, and the gaming monitor must also be special. But if you really want to win something in professional gaming and, above all, stay healthy, you need a decent office chair for gamers. But not every gaming office chair is always a good gaming office chair. The various gaming office chairs currently on the market have huge differences. Just because a PC chair has a gaming chair look doesn't mean it deserves the name gaming chair. There are gamer chairs in different price ranges. And the cheap variants are not always all bad. However, you should take a closer look at the gaming chair. Because if you buy cheap, you buy twice - and this is often the case with gaming chairs.
A good gamer chair - that's what counts
Sitting in front of the PC for hours is anything but healthy. Because if you sit rigid for a long time, you won't do your back any good in the long run, as science has now confirmed. In the following points we will explain briefly and concisely what is important in a good gamer chair.
Good gaming office chairs can be moved in three dimensions: A high-quality workmanship and great functionality characterize a gamer chair. Even more: by giving way to every movement and moving with the body, an office chair supports dynamic sitting. In this way, pro gamers can sit relaxed and race for hours even after hours.
Good gaming office chairs follow the movement of the back: Whether you bend forward while playing with the gaming controller, hang over the armrest to the side or drop back into the armrest, a good gaming chair adapts to the various movements and sitting positions of your body permanently. The change between the different sitting positions relieves the spine and intervertebral discs.
Good gaming office chairs encourage active sitting: The optimal gaming chair is built in such a way that it always keeps the pelvis and back minimally in motion. Movable modules in the chair seat and backrest move actively with the body in the various sitting positions and spring slightly. The constant, minimal changes in posture while sitting keep the connective tissue with muscles, tendons and ligaments relaxed and flexible.
A good gaming office chair is height adjustable: The optimal gaming chair can be ergonomically adapted to the individual body size and shape. The seat as well as the headrest and armrests are therefore height-adjustable. Ideally, your feet should stand loosely on the floor when you sit, at least three fingers fit between the back of the knees and the front edge of the chair, and the upper and lower arms form a right angle with the table top. The backrest should also be adjustable. Attention: the lumbar support should be at the height of the belt line.
A good gamer office chair prevents back problems: Back problems caused by a lack of exercise are usually a result of rigid sitting. Statically cooped up between the seat and the backrest, the cross stiffens. Back-friendly gamer chairs protect the intervertebral discs by encouraging moving sitting. This keeps the connective tissue supple, the intervertebral discs are nourished and the blood can circulate.
Good gaming office chairs alleviate existing back problems: Most of the time, sitting immobile causes pain in the back. A good gamer chair therefore eliminates static sitting and counteracts the chronic lack of movement through ergonomically optimal sitting in motion. With many changing sitting positions, the intervertebral discs are physiologically nourished by osmotic fluid exchange - and as a result, they function better in the long term as a damping element of the resilient spine.
Ergonomic gamer chairs for winners
The models of gaming office chairs from HARA STUHL belong to the medium to upper price segment and are specially designed for long periods of sitting. The divided seat is integrated as standard in all office chairs from HARA STUHL. Only the ergonomic back support differs. The NIE and NWL models, for example, are equipped with a split seat as well as a split backrest. This is not the case with the ZEN-LS, ZEN and CAE models, whose closed backrests primarily provide effective support for the lumbar area. The HARA CHAIR model ZEN-LS even has an integrated upholstery. This lordosis support relieves the lumbar spine. The ZEN-LS model is particularly suitable for people with a light to strong hollow back or after a herniated disc to support the spine. The ergonomic shapes of the ZEN and CAE models also support the loins as well as the shoulders and are very comfortable due to their padding. The CAE model, an executive chair, is ideal for tall and heavy people to sit on thanks to its very comfortable seat, high backrest and stable construction.
“The” gaming office chair does not exist
Which model is “the” right gaming office chair for you depends on your personal requirements. Body weight plays a role here, as does body size. If you have already had a herniated disc in the lumbar spine, you could benefit from a lumbar support. You can try out at home with a rolled up towel or pillow whether you find the S-padding in the lower back comfortable.
