Quick, think of someone hunched in front of a computer, guzzling caffeine for hours on end. Did you picture a remote worker or a gamer?

A new chair, developed by Herman Miller and Logitech, promises ergonomic support for both types of activities. The $1,500 Embody Gaming Chair has the bones of an office chair. Its design is adapted from Herman Miller’s 2008 task chair model, which pays close attention to supporting the full length of a sitter’s back, beyond the lumber region. Co-developed with a team of doctors and experts in biomechanics, vision, and physical therapy, Embody is marketed as a chair that aligns your body, improves blood flow, and maximizes your oxygen intake.
