            In the development of the digital world today, we know that it is growing rapidly. Lots of gamers, streamers and creators of game or vlog content.

Do you know what Anthropometry is?

            Anthropometry is a study concerned with the measurement of the dimensions of the human body. Meanwhile, according to other sources, anthropometry is a collection of numerical data related to the physical characteristics of the human body, size, shape and strength as well as the application of these data for handling design problems.

            Anthropometry will be widely used as an ergonomic consideration in the process of product planning (design) and work systems that will require human interaction.

The Importance of Applying Anthropometry in Gaming Chair Design

Frank Maas, an expert on E-sports ergonomics (2016), places great emphasis on the sitting position when playing games, especially when competing for hours on end. According to him, position greatly determines breathing, reflex speed, level of focus, endurance and stamina, and prevents us from potential back pain and inflammation at the base of the palm (carpal tunnel syndrome). This is where a gaming chair or gaming chair will come in handy.

            According to Frank Maas, sitting for long periods requires proper positioning. In principle, the position of the back should remain upright, but still relaxed. The lumbar or cushion between the spine should rest comfortably on a seat cushion that follows the contour or position of the spine.

            In addition to the position of the spine, the position of the feet must also be perfectly tread on the floor, with the position of the vertical thighbone slightly lowered so that blood circulation, either from the heart to the feet or vice versa, remains smooth. The health risks of gamers and workers who require sitting on average more than 6 hours a day have the same level of risk, you certainly don’t want to be young and have a hobby but have back pain.

Aspects are taken into account in designing a gaming chair.

1. Upper back

2. Lower Back

3. Sitting Bones

4. Thigh Behind the Knee

5. Area Behind the Knee

6. Arms

7.  Feet

This is the Gaming Chair that is suitable for Gamers.

The importance of the size of the gaming chair based on the anthropometric data of the gamer’s body is as follows:

1.Upper back

To reduce pressure on the discs in the neck and to help keep the muscles in the shoulders and neck relaxed

2. Lower back

Gamer seats have a choice, the back of the chair tilts 90-120 degrees. To keep your lower back against the chair. Sitting away from the backrest can cause a slouching position.

3. Sitting Bones

Sit with your hips back in the chair so that your back is against the backrest. Keep both thighs flat on the chair.

4. Thigh Behind the Knee

The height of the table should be high enough so that it covers the top of the thigh. The height of your desk should also be low enough so that your forearms are parallel to the floor and table. So that the load can be divided and the thighs are not easily cramped.

5. Area Behind the Knee

Gaming chairs should also not be too short, at least the knee position forms an ideal angle of 90-120 degrees. So that the knees can relax and not cramp easily.

6. Arms

This is an important element in gaming ergonomics because it can provide comfort while playing and reduce the risk of elbow injury due to excessive pressure.

The position of the arms rest must be right on the elbows of a gamer’s hands, it should not be too high and too wide.

7.  Feet

The height of the chair should allow your feet to rest flat on the floor without additional stress on the feet. Too high and your feet can dangle freely. It’s too low and your thighs won’t rest flat on the chair.

Your knees should be bent at about 90 degrees. Rest both feet flat on the floor below the knees.

Here’s the ideal monitor height and chair height

Height of Body Height of Chair Height of Table Height of Monitor
150-160 cm 35 – 43 cm 54 – 64.5 cm 104 – 115 cm
161-170 cm 38.5 – 45.5 cm 59.5 – 70 cm 111.5 – 122.5 cm
171-180 cm 41.5 – 44.5 cm 64 – 68.5 cm 119 – 125.5 cm
181-190 cm 45 – 51 cm 69 – 81 cm 126 – 137 cm

To achieve the ergonomics of the gaming table, the following tools can be used to measure anthropometry in production:

1. Anthropometry Chair

Anthropometric chair is an anthropometric measuring instrument that can measure the dimensions of the human body. At first, anthropometric chairs were only made of wood. Over time, the anthropometric chair has turned into a modern anthropometric measuring instrument that can measure in detail.

               There are 3 parts of measurement that can be done using an anthropometric chair. The first is in a standing position, the second is sitting and the last is in the facial area. In addition, the anthropometric chair is equipped with an electric jack so that it can help make measurements easier and more effective.

2. Metrisis – Portable Anthropometry

Metrisis – Portable anthropometry kit is the newest form of anthropometric measuring instrument. Because all anthropometric measuring components such as anthropometer, sliding caliper, small spreading caliper and large spreading caliper can be carried anywhere by using a special suitcase.

       Besides being able to take anthropometric measurements anywhere easily and quickly, you can take anthropometric measurements up to more than 100 dimensions of the human body.

You can get the products above easily
