Embody Gaming Chair
The Embody Gaming Chair from Herman Miller and Logitech G is the gaming industry's first truly ergonomic chair, featuring science-backed ergonomics to keep gamers comfortable and cool.
Together, the two companies spent nearly two years studying esports pros and players around the globe to understand their needs. They found that a typical esports athlete is seated at their desk upwards of three times as long as a typical office worker. In addition, a large number of gamers expressed dissatisfaction with the comfort and ergonomics provided from traditional gaming chairs that typically focus on aesthetics, and they often experienced a performance decline due to repetitive motion injuries.
This in-depth research convinced Herman Miller to modify a current high-performance chair to improve lower back support, increase forward leaning, and provide a greater ability to swivel. The Embody Chair, introduced by Herman Miller 13 years ago, set the benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement, so it was the perfect choice to be modified to meet the unique needs of today’s serious gamers.
The Embody Gaming Chair allows gamers’ bodies to be properly aligned, balanced, and comfortable. A number of enhancements were made to get there, including cooling foam with copper-infused particles that support the ideal gaming posture and reduce heat buildup caused from sitting on thick cushions for a prolonged period of time, and pixelated support, which distributes weight evenly to reduce pressure and encourages movement. These features are crucial to maintaining healthy circulation and focus. Since it was introduced in July 2020, thousands of gamers around the world are now sitting healthier.
