About PostureSmart (UK)

Based in the North East of England PostureSmart (UK) has a vast experience in office seating for general and specialised requirements.


From launching our first web site in 2005 we have helped numerous businesses, organisations, government departments, and individuals solve their seating requirements, and solve them we truly have.


From humble beginnings we realised that the majority of office chairs were simply designed for sitting on and not for posture, support or durability. What the vast amount of manufacturers wanted was volume orders in the front door and boxes out the back door.

We worked with Physiotherapists, Ergonomists, Occupational Therapists as well as other healthcare professionals, and took on board their advice regarding shape and size of backrests and desired support areas, in addition to required seat sizes and arm supports.

With all this in mind we set off on a mission to source manufacturers to work with so we could be in a position to provide great advice and supply office seating developed for Posture - Back Care – Support along with easy adjustability and also durability whilst not forgetting Comfort.

We teamed up with the  ‘Top Dog’ in orthopaedic office seating, this company is ultimately the best you can get  and so our specialist  and premium ranges came about in our PostureSmart and Vertebral brands. We then established a relationship with another manufacturer  who would also work  with us. This had the benefit of making sure our standard office seating range  was also capable of offering all the adjustments and support required in a good truly ergonomic office chair designed for posture and back care.

All our office Seating far Exceeds HSE Seating at work directives  as detailed in HSG57 and most carry a minimum 5 Year Guarantee.

So where are we today and what  makes us so good at what we do?

Well, to put it  bluntly  ‘We Care’ its that simple.  This is not just a business with a showcase site set up to sell a chair, we do not hide behind PO boxes. We don't just provide email contact  details.  PostureSmart (UK) experts are at the end of a phone and  ready to offer help and advice. Happy to answer any questions that you may have about  the various options, sizes, functions. Indeed everything  you want to know and consider before you make your  decision.

We simply know everything there is to know about office seating  We are truly passionate about the subject. Also we have attended courses in Advanced Workstation Assessments covering Seating, Desk and Display Screen Equipment  (contrary to some claims being made there is actually no nationally recognised qualification in DSE Assessments) so we can also help set up your workstation to best working practice as well as consulting on a chair.

An example of our expertise is a recent commission for a bariatric office chair sent to Canberra, Australia. The chair was designed using a made to measure coil sprung seat and a reinforced seat pan. Once completed the chair was sent by air freight and this is the response from the customer once it was received.

"The chair arrived and has now been assembled looks great . I have the recipients case manager coming to visit me at the shop to get familiar with the chair adjustments before it goes out to client next week , Thank you for all the help you gave in this process I hope we will get the opportunity to work together again on another project in future . All the best Ken"
