In video editing like editing written materials, you need concentration and this also requires excessive sitting that leaves you in a sedentary situation. In this case, you need to allow yourself to move at times and change your posture from sitting to standing as you edit because if not, prolonged sitting could possibly develop pains in the neck and in the lower back.
This is an adverse effect of doing editing work for a longer period of time. However, you can reduce or prevent discomfort and pains in some parts of your body by choosing an ideal chair for you to use while you edit your games. You can opt to use a gaming chair or an ergonomic chair to have a more comfortable sitting posture.
But it is better to use one in which you have the option to change your posture as you edit by working in a standing posture to be able to at least move your body and not to engage in sitting posture for long hours which is really bad for you.
One of the best gaming chairs for a video game editor is from FlexiSpot. I can say this because this company is a leader in producing ergonomic home office furniture such as ergonomic chairs that are durable and multifunctional.
I would recommend the Ergonomic Gaming Chair with Retractable Footrest Ri3476.
