The Newton has a firmer more bench-like seat that puts all the pressure on your sitz bones for better connection to the chair. It has a special convex curve designed into the seat so it slopes forward and doesn’t hit the hamstrings, and also slopes backwards so it doesn’t hit the tailbone. People that prefer this chair either have a hamstring or tailbone issue, or are bodywork people (feldenkrais, alexander technique, pilates, yoga, postural experts, equestrians) you get the idea. The Newton is often purchased with the additional Comfort Cushion.

How to measure:
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.
