Level up your VR gaming comfort with Ergohuman gaming chairs

VR headsets and video games have changed how we interact with digital spaces. Unlike traditional gaming, where you sit back and control the action from a distance, VR places you in the midst of adventure. The immersive experience demands more from players physically, whether you're dodging bullets in Half-Life: Alyx or solving puzzles in Moss.

While some VR games require a standing position, many VR games can be played from a seated position. If you are playing for long hours, sitting down while VR gaming is essential for comfort. Due to the more kinetic gameplay, choosing a dynamic and supportive gaming chair for VR gaming is important.

Ergohuman gaming chairs provide unparalleled full-body support for all gaming modes, including virtual reality. Engineered with responsive mesh, unique autoflex zones, a free-float recline mode, and 5D armrests, this chair solves the problem of unsupportive and uncomfortable sitting when it comes to immersive gaming.

Comfort matters when VR gaming

VR headsets and video games have changed how we interact with digital environments. Unlike traditional gaming, where you sit back and control the action from a distance, VR places you in the midst of adventure. The immersive experience demands more from players physically, whether you're dodging bullets in Half-Life: Alyx or solving puzzles in Moss.


Due to VR gaming's taxing nature, you may find yourself standing, leaning, or making quick movements, which can lead to muscle strain and joint pain. Poor posture and repetitive movements can also lead to discomfort and fatigue, distracting you from the interactive experience you should be enjoying.


Cybersickness is another common issue with VR gaming. This discomfort can be exacerbated by standing over sitting⁽¹⁾. Therefore, it's crucial to choose a supportive gaming chair for your virtual reality experience, as this can minimise your nausea and dizziness.


Regarding the potential for muscle strain, pain, and cybersickness, this is where a well-designed ergonomic gaming chair comes into play.


Ergohuman gaming chairs: the comfortable solution

Ergohuman has established itself as a leader in ergonomic seating design since 1996. With an emphasis on high-quality materials and attention to detail, Ergohuman chairs are crafted for comfort. Providing full-body support, they are the ideal choice for VR gamers who spend hours immersed in virtual worlds.


> Key features of Ergohuman gaming chairs

What makes Ergohuman gaming chairs a top choice for VR gaming? There are many amazing features that will elevate your virtual reality gaming experience. Let's take a closer look at some of the most important details.

> Ergonomic design

Ergohuman has engineered genuinely ergonomic chairs. They are meticulously designed to support healthy posture for a range of body types, meaning just about every user can reduce their risk of strain and injury.


The chairs adapt to the natural curve of your spine, providing lumbar support that maintains alignment and prevents slouching. With adjustable back height, you can position the lumbar to conform to the small of your back, no matter your height.


The chairs also have adjustable seat height and depth so you can relieve stress on the knees and lower back while promoting healthy blood circulation during long periods of sitting.


> 5D adjustable armrests

The adjustable armrests on our ergonomic gaming chairs are a standout feature, offering next-level wrist and arm support. For VR gamers who use motion controllers for extended periods, these armrests can be adjusted in multiple directions – height, depth, width, angle, and tilt – to provide optimal comfort and prevent repetitive strain injuries. You can also move the armrests out the way if you need more range of motion for certain games. 


> Headrest and legrest

Ergohuman gaming chairs all come fully loaded with an integrated headrest and legrest, providing support for your neck and legs. Whether you're leaning back to relax during a game or need to stretch out your legs, the headrest and legrest enhance your comfort and reduce the risk of fatigue.


> Materials and build quality

Built with premium materials, our ergonomic gaming chairs are durable and comfortable. The high-quality elastomeric mesh ensures breathability and flexibility, while the robust frame guarantees stability during intense gaming sessions for at least a decade.

Benefits of Ergohuman chairs for VR gamers

For those who prefer the VR experience and the journey of a game that fully immerses you, you'll understand comfort is key. Standing and moving around often can lead to fatigue, strain, and even motion sickness. For players with a disability, standing for long periods is simply not possible. Ergohuman gaming chairs have been engineered to support any kind of gamer, including VR games, handheld games, PC gaming, and more.


> Enhanced immersion and focus

The last thing you want when VR gaming is to break focus and be thrown back into the real world. A comfortable and supportive chair allows you to stay in your virtual reality environment without being distracted by discomfort. Lose yourself in the game with Ergohuman, whether you're exploring the vast landscapes of Skyrim VR or partying with your online friends in Rec Room.


> Continuous contact

Ergohuman gaming chairs are designed so you keep continuous contact with the chair even while moving. The backrest has unique flex so you're constantly supported even when you're twisting, making micro-movements, and using free-float recline mode. 


> Reduced tiredness

The ergonomic features of Ergohuman gaming chairs minimise physical fatigue, allowing longer gaming sessions without aches and pains. The chair's design strategically supports your body with varying tension across ten autoflex zones, enabling you to focus on your gameplay without worrying about soreness or strain.


> Healthier sitting

Sitting in a well-designed ergonomic chair has significant long-term health benefits. Ergohuman gaming chairs help reduce the risk of musculoskeletal issues, ensuring you can enjoy VR gaming for years without compromising your health.

What are the best VR games to play sitting down?

If you like to play VR games in a more relaxed position, we've curated a list of some of the best virtual reality games you can play from the comfort of your chair without compromising the gaming experience.


> Phantom: Covert Ops

This first-person shooter game is played from a kayak and is best played when seated. In the game, you play as a Phantom – a deadly, covert operative tasked with preventing a war in a single night. Use military-grade weapons to defeat your enemies while stealthily navigating through the water in this thrilling and immersive combat experience.


> Dash Dash World

Similar to Mario Kart, this racing game is designed to be played while seated. In this game, you will race against opponents on unique and exciting tracks with access to funky weapons as you aim for first place. If you are prone to motion sickness, the game has a few comfort options to reduce nausea.


> Ultrawings

Soar high from the comfort of your Ergohuman in the aerial-themed, open-world game: Ultrawings. In this game, you pilot an aircraft while completing missions across islands. It's packed with fun features and boasts a retro arcade-themed aesthetic for a pinch of nostalgia.


> No Man's Sky

Explore unknown planets and weather dangerous environments, swarming with aliens who are seeking their fortune. Play solo or enter multi-player mode to team up with friends as you build, farm, and explore.


> Real VR Fishing

Perfect for fans of fishing, this realistic game allows you to cast your line in dozens of lifelike locations. Whether you're a pro angler or not, the physics of this game will enable you to feel like you're really at the lake or out on the pier. Plus, you can choose multi-player mode so you can catch up with a buddy while you play.


> Population: One

This game feels very realistic while seated, which is an excellent find, considering it's a first-person shooter game. It's super comfortable to play on a swivel chair, like the Ergohuman, since you will need to be able to turn quickly. In this game, you can experience vertical mobility as you climb, fly, build, and fight - all achievable from standing or seating positions. Keep in mind that this is best for a wireless VR headset to avoid tangling.
