With decades of experience as a physician and researcher, Dr. Osler’s quest for a healthier way to sit led him to develop a better chair.
Less expensive than most active chairs or “ergonomic” office chairs, our design is an economical solution to preventing back pain and improving posture.

The healthiest way to sit.
The office chair you are sitting in is terribly designed. Modern chairs encourage poor posture and inactivity.
Dr. Richard Rodriguez MD
It’s a different kind of chair, invented by a former surgeon. He says it’s exactly what you need.
Former surgeon Turner Osler is trying to save the world from the traditional chair by creating a design that includes a rocking seat that feels more like walking than sitting. -Billy Baker

Fabric (Gray): Corporate and understated, our upholstered Ariel fits easily into any office decor. But while it may seem undistinguished, beneath the seat is a radical sitting technology hiding in plain sight. Hand-stitched and with a thin layer of foam on the underside for breathability, we pay attention to detail.
Performance Leather (Red): If you want to make a statement, here’s how. Elegant, buttery soft to the touch but nearly indestructible, our performance leather is stronger and far more durable than animal hide. And, unlike traditional leather, performance leather requires no upkeep. (Maybe this is why Mercedes uses performance leather in their cars?)
Chair feet are also included when you purchase wheels. We recommend starting with chair feet and then graduating to wheels when you are ready. If your chair has wheels, warn any friends that are new to active sitting that they are in for a different experience of sitting if they try out your QOR360 chair.
Easy! Watch this video.
Sizing: In two sizes, Short (17-21 inches) for shorter folks and Tall (20-27 inches), for average and tall folks. If you fall between the two sizes (20-21 inches) we suggest opting for the Tall size.
Deciding the correct height of your QOR360 chair is very important to maintain proper posture when sitting. Most chairs are too low, your knees should be lower than your hips when sitting to maintain an open hip angle and your lower lumbar curve. To find the correct height chair, stand in whatever shoes you will be wearing when sitting, and measure from the ground to the top of your patella (knee cap). This measurement is the height of your chair.
For example, if the measurement to the top of my kneecap is 23in I would choose the Tall size because it falls within the range of 20-27in
Please note, due to COVID-19 our supply chain has been disrupted and we are sold out of all Ariel models. Ariel chairs are available for pre-order and will ship starting from June 1st when we reopen. Thank you for understanding.
