About Us

Office Chair Specialists


Based in the north east of England PostureSmart (UK) has an immense experience in office seating for general and specialised requirements.

From launching our first web site in 2005 we have helped countless individuals, businesses and organisations to solve their office chair issues, and solve them we truly have.

From humble beginnings taking in and realising that the vast majority of office chairs were simply designed for parking oneself on while working at a desk or chilling out with a cuppa and even lounging, (when the boss wasn’t around), we realised that this seating style simply did not have the adjustments or support capability, and indeed, in many cases, simply were the wrong size.


Office Chair Caring For Your Back


With all this in mind we set off on a mission to help, educate and supply the correct office chair ranges for adjust-ability, posture and back care. We initially accepted some manufacturers standard chairs that they perceived to be good for posture and back care with configurable options such as inflatable lumbar panels and seat depth adjustment.  Yet they were still only in one size and after a while were rock hard to sit on for a full 8 hours, and we don’t like numb bum syndrome.

So we searched for manufacturers that would work with us and took on board advice from physiotherapists /ergonomists /occupational therapists as well as other healthcare professionals, as to what they wanted to see in either a standard chair, or slightly more targeted areas for size and various issues such as sciatica or spinal problems.

One of the issues we came across was that many manufacturers were only interested in orders in the front door and boxes out the back door, simply not what we were looking for, then we found one manufacturer who would work with us to develop our ergonomic office chair ranges.


Developed with  Specialists


This person is a renowned expert in orthopaedic office seating and so our specialist and premium ranges came about in our PostureSmart and Vertebral brands. We then found another company who would also work with us, making sure our standard value for money chairs were capable of offering all the adjustments and support required in a good office chair designed for posture and back care.

One of the main factors is that all foams or springing are deliberately chosen for comfort, gone are the days of the ‘Rock Hard’ seat,  gone will be the days that you cannot concentrate on the job simply because you are uncomfortable, your back aches , you just feel that you cannot get into the right position or the chair wobbles.


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

Well, put simply ‘We Care’. This is not just a showcase site hoping to sell a chair, we are at the end of a phone and ready to offer help and advice, happy to talk through any questions that you may have about the various options, sizes functions and indeed everything  you may need to know before you make your decision regarding your office chair.

We simply know everything there is to know about office seating; and we are truly passionate about the subject. We have attended courses in Advanced Workstation Assessments covering Seating, Desking 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 as well as consult on a chair.

Want some help and advice? Simply pick up the phone and give us a call, we are the friendly folks who know what they are talking about.
