WHY OUR ERGONOMIC GAMING CHAIRS ARE THE MOST COMFORTABLE FOR LONG HOURS OF GAMING
When locked in, both casual players and professional gamers sit for extended periods of time while gaming. Often, the negative effects of sitting (back and neck pain, tension headaches, and pinched nerves, among other symptoms) can be felt just a few hours into a gaming session. These symptoms are not only a source of stress, but also a distraction. Thankfully, the adverse effects of sitting are easily relieved with an ergonomic gaming chair. Sleek, supportive, and updated in cool new colorways, Herman Miller’s gaming chairs offer unparalleled ergonomic benefits.
ARE ERGONOMIC GAMING CHAIRS REALLY WORTH IT?
The short answer is: Absolutely. Think about it as an investment in your long-term health. From the moment you sit down in a Herman Miller gaming chair, you can feel the difference superior support makes. An ergonomic gaming chair can transform the way you feel during (and after) an hours-long gaming session. The best ergonomic gaming chairs deliver total support and premium comfort. They’re designed to alleviate stress on your body—from your head and neck down to your feet. If you’re not playing from an ergonomic gaming chair, you’re likely putting unnecessary strain on your body, not to mention inhibiting your best play.

HOW TO: ADJUST YOUR CHAIR FOR THE HEALTHIEST POSTURE
Prioritizing a healthy posture will help keep your body comfortable and your mind free of distractions. Keep these tips in mind as you fine-tune your gaming chair and adjust your setup:
- Adjust your seat height so that your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are bent at a 90-degree angle.
- Similarly, your armrests should be high enough for your elbows to bend at a 90-degree angle.
- Your desk should be tall enough to comfortably clear your thighs and allow your forearms to rest parallel to the desktop.
- The size of your screen in inches is the distance your monitor should be from you. For example, if your monitor is 24” wide, it should be 24” away from your face.
- Help prevent eye strain by keeping the top third of your monitor level with your eyes.
- Finally, consider adding a comfortable footrest to your setup.
The best gaming space includes an adjustable gaming chair, a sit-to-stand gaming desk, and an adjustable monitor arm. These allow you to tailor each element of your gaming setup for your specific needs, and help reduce pain and discomfort over long periods of sitting.
