No regrets, this is an excellent product.
I bought an Ariel for my home office/music room and absolutely love this chair! It's quick and easy to learn and get used to the sitting posture and very comfortable, even for hours sitting at the desk. I feel less tired at the end of the day, which I attribute to the improved posture being more efficient. The chair is well made, easily assembled, and convenient to use and store; light, strong, and adjustable. Less than two weeks after buying my first chair I ordered a second for my other office space - no regrets, this is an excellent product. I had questions about my orders and found customer service to be excellent, very quick and informative responses even over the weekend.
Now I sit straighter ... no slouching!
I have had my Newton chair for about 18 months now. I live and work in the UK, with a desk-based job. I'm in my 60s. When I bought the chair, I wondered if I had been a bit extravagant - transAtlantic shipping and UK import duty bumped up the cost a fair bit. But now the chair is on my "best buy" list for sure, and I strongly recommend it for anyone who has to work at a screen for much of the day. Now I sit straighter ... no slouching! ... and this has translated into improved posture away from my desk as well, and helped with my core stability. Do yourself a big favour, and get past all the reasons for not buying one of these chairs. You'll not regret the move to active sitting.

“I really can’t express how much this is relieving my lower back pain. I honestly can’t wait to get to the office and sit down!”
“It’s like a bird perch, no more hunching, no more tripping over the big ball, super comfy and love the red cover.”
“It somehow makes me walk better! I’m not hunched when I walk. It seems to be teaching me how to use my spine better?”

I can’t imagine being with out this chair.
"I received an email from my friend Larry Goldfarb, a well known Feldenkrais teacher/practitioner and Trainer in this method, he mentioned this new concept of sitting and mentioned he was using one of their chairs. Now imagine I was sitting on my solid oak stool at my computer in no real comfort but living with this as normal. Well I decided to take the hint and leap of faith and ordered a Ariel for my self. I have been using this wonderful chair for a little over a month now and what a wonder it is! I am so impressed with the engineering that has gone into this chair. It takes a little time to get accustomed to the sitting dynamics, but once you do, it gives a sense of freedom that is truly unique. I can’t imagine being with out this chair. If you are considering the purchase of one of these great chairs, just do it. You won’t be disappointed."

It makes me taller.
"So I didn’t use the other chair full time. At school I was up and down so much that it didn’t make a huge difference and then corona hit. Now I sit in front of the computer all day and what a difference the chair I have makes. Without it my back aches and my leg hurt when I run, and I have a “good” office chair. At home I have used the model that I add to another hard stool. It makes me taller. My legs don’t hurt. My neck and cervical spine is more aligned. I turn easier. Dang it’s a miracle. I’m hooked. "

I love this chair.
I love this chair. I was having shoulder issues in my previous chair from leaning and not being in an active position. This also contributed to some hip and ham string issues. With your chair I can still sit to take a load off but it keeps me upright, no slouching. This helps with many other body aches and pains. My shoulder has been good and hip feels better also since using this chair.
If I ever get to go back to my work office,
it's coming back and forth with me for sure!
"I've been wanting to post my chair to Instagram but my covid-home-office is truly a ramshackle setup with a beautiful chair in the middle of it 😉
My backstory - The first shutdown in March/April I threw together a "temporary" office at home - consisting of a directors chair from the 80's. Awful. That morphed into a director's chair with a large pillow on it, which of course was still horrid, so I started quizzing my physical therapist about her Qor chairs. Her office was shut down as well so she let me borrow one. I'm not going to lie, that first week was tough on the sits bones! From there she helped me purchase one because you were shut down as well. I've been in love with it since and if I ever get to go back to my work office it's coming back and forth with me for sure!"
Nothing comes close to the QOR360 Ariel for me.
"I have been working at a desk for years in software design, and TV script writing. For 40 years I have had lower back problems and have tried every contrivance on the market and have even designed a few for myself with an engineering friend. Nothing comes close to the QOR360 Ariel for me. I have been living in it day and night since January, first at my office and now at my home office with the Covid nightmare. When I first ordered it, I accidentally ordered the wrong size and getting in touch with them was such an easy and friendly experience. They said, “Let us send you out a replacement part immediately so you can get to using the chair right away.”
The only problem on my end now is that I can comfortably (and safely for my back) work for so long that I am disappointing my wife a bit.
I am ordering one for my daughter and then one for my son. It’s the nicest gift I can think of giving them."
