It‘s not about the chair, it’s the seating position

Have you ever experienced a tired back, sore neck, or aching shoulders when gaming? This is caused by the upright sitting position when using a computer at a desk. Sitting upright in a chair is, simply, not a natural position for our bodies. Therefore, within an hour our backs get fatigued and we start hunching over with our upper body weight supported by our elbows on armrests. Once this happens pains and aches are created as our body’s are out of alignment. This shouldn’t be a surprise as an entire industry was created offering so-called “ergonomic” products to improve comfort when using a computer at a desk, but they fail since the base problem still exists, you have to sit upright to use a computer at a desk.

back pain at desk, needs an obutto ergonomic workstation

At Obutto, we threw out everything about the desk & chair, and focused on being comfortable when using a keyboard & mouse. This meant changing the unnatural upright seating position to a more “laid back” or reclined seating position by raising the legs, which distributes your weight across more of your body. So instead of all of your weight on your backside, it is now spread from your lower thighs to your lower back. From this more natural seating position armrests are no longer needed, and it is finally possible to use your keyboard & mouse for hours with no more aches.

This ergonomic seating position is provided by both our oZone & r3volution gaming cockpits, and they cost similar or even less than high end office chairs!

ergonomic seating position
1

Legs are stretched out and raised to distribute weight across more of your body

2

Seatback is reclined a bit and now the body’s weight is distributed from the lower back to the lower thighs

3

Keyboard/Mouse tray is low so the forearms are parallel to the ground, and your arms weight is supported by the seatback side bolsters. No need for armrests

4

Eyeline is at the centre of the monitor or just above so your neck stays in alignment with your spine

Cupholder for your favourite beverage!

What is a gaming cockpit? Is it for sim-racing?

In short Gaming Cockpits are a specialized “computer desk” designed specifically for comfortable use of a computer, peripherals and sim controllers, which is everything a computer user needs.  In 2006, Obutto revolutionized how we use a computer when we created the ORIGINAL  gaming cockpit, the OZONE, and we’ve advanced the concept even further with our latest gaming cockpit, the R3VOLUTION.

Gamers and hardcore computer users worldwide have been enjoying Obutto goodness for nearly a decade, it’s time to join the Obutto r3volution!
