About us

THE Office Posture Chair Specialists


Office Chair Specialists

Based in the North East of England PostureSmart (UK) has  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 to solve their office chair 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 well-being, support or durability.  What the vast amount of manufacturers wanted was volume orders in the front door and boxes out the back door.


Office Seating Designed by Experts


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

With all this in mind we set off on a mission to source office chair manufacturers who would work with us so that  we could be in a position to provide great advice and supply an  office chair range developed for Posture – Back Care – Support – Comfort along with easy adjustments  and  durability.

We teamed up with the specialist in orthopaedic office chair business, this company is ultimately the best you can get. All our specialist office chair and premium office chair ranges came about in our PostureSmart and Vertebral brands.


Fully Adjustable Supportive Office Seating


We then established a relationship with another manufacturer  who was also flexible and took on board our requirements. He is making sure our standard office chair range is capable of offering all the adjustments and support required in a high quality range of office chairs designed for posture and back care.

All our office Seating far Exceeds HSE Seating at work directives  as detailed in HSG57


What  makes us so good at what we do?


Well, to put it  bluntly, ‘We Care’ – it’s that simple.  This is not just a business with a showcase site set up to sell an office chair, we do not hide behind PO boxes or provide only email contact  details.  We 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 office chair options, sizes, functions. In fact, everything  you want to know and consider before you make your  decision.

We simply know everything there is to know about office chairs; and are truly passionate about the subject. Our trained staff 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). We can now 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”

And this comment from another customer:-

Chair delivered right to my 1st floor front door, unpacked and in use by 8.59am! Thusfar – after 2 minutes- it seems to be everything I have been looking for for years in both flexibility and comfort. Thank you for your obviously skilled talents in sorting out what I needed! DH, Pill, Somerset.
