"I use my QOR360 chair when practicing at home and in the office and truly, I can’t sit on anything else while I’m working. My core and back are much happier using it.”

Man, I wish I knew about this chair back then

“About 5 years ago I seriously injured my back partially due to sitting long periods of time in a traditional office chair. After about 6 months of excruciating pain, lost gigs and rehearsals, I was 95% back to normal. I finally found this chair and saw it as a way to help keep my back healthy.

As a retired design engineer, I really appreciate and love the design of this chair. It allows me to easily maintain my posture playing any of my horns. No matter if it is strapped, held or pegged the seat naturally adjusts my back to the situation.

After I got used to sitting on it (about a week), I could comfortably do so for long periods of time. Additionally, It has no structure on the sides that would interfere or ding my Bari.

After I got used to sitting on it, I could comfortably do so for long periods of time. I also use it for sitting at my reed profiler machine and my graphic design work. The wheels and adjustable height come in handy, as it makes it easier to use & move from ‘station’ to ‘station’. It’s like I have 3 chairs in one!

Man, I wish I knew about this chair back then; I lost way more money in missed gigs, than the investment of this QOR360.

Thank you Lex & Dr. Osler for such a great product!!!”
