Kudos to MRdave's responses.

I would like to also add that the man was contemplating bacon.
He was kidnapped by the way, kidnapped. He was attached to the chair in more ways than one, fed with a straw and the chair was rigged with an accelerometer and an arduino set to start his house on fire if he moved.

In seriousness, we're all looking at this in terms of "a man sat still in a chair for a really long time." Perhaps the number 88 is a clue. Or maybe the word hour. I think 88 credit hours is about two years of college. Also, what kind of chair is it and might gender be important?

For this, I will post a question and a guess.
Q: Is the man alive throughout the duration?
A: He died in the chair, and his body wasn't found until 88 hours later.

That one by MRDave is very acceptable. The hours need not be consecutive.
Secondly, (hrs.) may be some sort of currency or similar?

* Its a guineas book record or a competition where he remains still for long periods of time

* he was at a gunpoint and instructed not to move

* the person in question was finding it fun to do it

* he was trying some meditation technique involving sitting at the chair for long duration

* he was simply lethargic

* he was dead but he was identified dead only after 88 hours.
