At Vergo, we are eager to educate everyone on the importance of ergonomics, and how ergonomic products will benefit you in your everyday life, particularly if you spend a lot of your time looking at a screen sitting down. So this one’s for you, gamers.

If you are a PC gamer that spends hours deep in the realms of Minecraft, Warcraft, or another kind of ‘craft’, it’s important to consider ergonomics in your equipment choices.

Whoever you are, having the right ergonomic equipment and posture is crucial to preventing future injuries and Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs).

Below is a list of essential products that we think will make your days playing Fortnite a lot more comfortable.

Ergonomic Chair – Ergo Dynamic

Having an extremely comfortable chair is probably one of the most important things when it comes to gaming. The Ergo Dynamic chair ensures that you are comfortable, whilst also ensuring the alignment of your body is correct, which means you’re not compromising your posture.

The Ergo Dynamic chair has a stowaway foot-stool, which means you can put your feet up and relax. Doing this is great for blood flow.

This chair will make your seating experience a truly dynamic one.

Height adjustable desk – Varidesk Pro

Having a height-adjustable desk is great for those who sit for long periods of time. It means you don’t have to leave your desk every 30 minutes to stretch your legs, you can simply lift the desk up to standing level.

The two-tier design of the Varidesk Pro gives you an upper display surface for your monitor, and a spacious lower keyboard and mouse desk. It’s height adjustable to 11 different positions for the ultimate ergonomic comfort.

Monitor Mount – Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm

Having a monitor mount is great because it allows you to move your display screen to any position you want that feels comfortable.

It is recommended to have a full arm’s length distance to your monitor to reduce eye strain, also, keeping your eyes at horizontal eye level with the upper quarter of the monitor is ideal to reduce strain on your upper neck. This can be successfully achieved by having an adjustable monitor mount, such as the Ergotron LX.

Wrist Support – PUK Wrist Support

Using a mouse is a necessary part of gaming, so making sure your wrist is in a comfortable position is important, as this will decrease the risk of repetitive strain injuries (RSI).

The PUK is a smooth and comfortable wrist rest that rests between your palm and wrist. The PUK is easy to use as it will glide and slide in every direction.
