What is a "Gaming Chair"?


Gaming Chairs were introduced in the mid-2000's as a solution to the back issues plaguing professional eSports gamers, who were spending very long hours seated in high-stress environments.


These uniquely stylized chairs come in many colorful designs, but there is a common set of core features that all gaming chairs share.
