I am in a unique postion as I take a Steel Case Leap chair and attach a mouse pad to the arm rest.

Past few years I LOVE it for gaming as I have a gel pad for comfort for the wrist but what I realize now is that the mouse pad service is not high tech enough. It has worked really well but as it wears thin I need a replacement. I thought of fabricating my own solution and buying a standard mouse pad and attaching it and just have it easy come and easy go.

Yet I haven't found anything like this.

What would be nice would be to have a high quality mouse pad you could attach to any chair so someone like me that likes to game from home with no table can make it happen.

Anyone ever work in this environment?

Current setup is a 55" 4k TV mounted to the wall which you then move when you want to game. Then you move the chair in front put on the gaming mouse and have a great time. Love this setup!

Love anyones input

I have seen some pretty cool things done with flight stick and throttle setups that would likely be applicable to regular pc usage (keyboard + mouse w/ mousepad). Might look around at some of the hotas/flight sim setups people have done for one inspiration. I saw one that had a monitor arm attached or screwed into the bottom of the chair, with the flight stick (or in your case mouse pad) attached to the backplate that would connect to the monitor. You could then swivel the arm into position and adjust height as desired.

I'll do some more scouring on this. It would be great to have a better mouse pad that is more easily detachable and high grade.

Anyone ever find one that worked for this?

So far using this
Mouse pad attachment for chair

The issue really is that you cant change out the mousepad to a good gaming mouse pad and you cant move your hand much and I keep the keyboard on my lap.

Any ideas?

Not 100% exactly what you're looking for, but I use a sliding tray table. I covered the top with a carpeted floormat from a car ($5 + I cut it into the right shaped and covered the edges in black gorilla tape). From there, I just tossed a large Reflex Lab mousepad on top. It stays in place since both are fabric. The floormat isn't 100% needed, but it add cushion and makes a difference after a few hours. Works great. These tray tables are designed for someone on a couch, but there are versions that can raise and lower more to work for someone in a chair.

I bought a Razer aluminium mousepad for in-bed gaming on my 4K TV, and it's actually great.
I bet it'd be a breeze to glue it to some custom cut wood and then mount the wood on your armrest.

It's a nice mat, but I actually don't know if they sell them anymore. Any sort of aluminium mousepad would be ideal, I'm sure.
But this one is Razer, and that makes it 1337.
