Posture Balance commenced operations in July 1999 as the Australian licensee for the Therapod™ brand of products, and since that time has continued to evolve to now become Australia’s largest specialist manufacturer of ergonomic seating accessories.
We are deeply committed to maintaining manufacturing and design roles in Australia, not just in our own organisation, but throughout our supply chair as well.
Consistent research and development programs have resulted in a range of leading-edge seat-foam technologies, as well as a number of products created for the 24/7 intensive-use sector. As these products have progressively evolved into uniquely individual identities in their own right, the Posture Balance has become an integrated collection of brand-categories.
In 2018, the Posture Balance has undertaken a significant rebranding program ahead of our 20th anniversary.
Understanding the increasing ergonomic awareness of the modern office, and in particular the rise of the Sit-Stand workplace, our name now reflects the balance between sitting and standing correctly.
Our product portfolio includes a broad selection of Australian-made seating and ergonomic accessories that work together to create optimal working environments.
The key to Posture Balance is that we maintain a full manufacturing and design facility in Melbourne. In a time when it is commonplace to switch to off-shore component sourcing, when we developed our new chair ranges flexi and bExact–a key factor for us was that the many elements of their structure were manufactured not just in Australia, but in Melbourne. Hence all of our plastics and foams utilise local labour and materials.Our key advantage is that we can personalise your chairs in any way to make them bigger, smaller,stronger and then adapt them to any challenge.
