Let's continue to work together
When we first started out in the early ‘90s we were working closely with people like you — ergonomists, physios, occupational therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and health and safety staff, to develop effective products and make them accessible to the right people. Even though we’re a much bigger company today, our focus is still the same: to help the people who are suffering as a result of poor workstation set up and equipment.
