Aalborg is the name given to our range of postural furniture for schools, hospitals, office and factory workers amongst others. As we say, our products are designed and made in Britain with influence from Denmark, a country known for excellence in design and in education, and the birthplace of leading authority Dr. Chresten Mandal.
Over 50 years later it retains a charm and of course the famous distillery of Aalborg Akvavit. We have called the spirit of education, see photos above.
Just south of Aalborg is Hadsund and Hadsund School, a recent example from the renown designer Jens Guldbaek of Loop architects in Lyngby Copenhagen, famous for Hellerup School in Copenhagen and many more ground breaking schools which are having so large an influence on school design in Scandinavia and even as far as Melbourne in Australia.
Hadsund is a happy school, catering for pupils from early years to late teens and with facilities for all generations who want to learn, to play and enjoy its brilliant interactive facilities.

More people than ever are suffering from back and neck pain within their workplace whether that be in your employer’s office or in your home office.
So here are 5 top tips for great posture
Making sure that your chair is at the right height for you is essential for great posture.
Your chair should allow you to place both feet flat on the floor or on a footrest without stretching. And should allow you to sit comfortably at your desk.
If you spend a lot of time desk bound ensuring that you have a practical lay out where things can be easily reached will greatly help your posture.
Making sure everything you need is within easy reach to help avoid over stretching.
It is essential that your desk is at the right height for you also, once seated with your chair at the correct height your elbows should be bent at 90 degrees and parallel to the desk, allowing you to rest your forearms comfortably on the desk in front of you.
Taking regular breaks from your seated position at your desk is good for:
Sit stand desks are becoming really popular within the work place.
These types of desks have massive benefits to both employers and employees.
Desks like these can quickly be adjusted so a great solution if you need to hot desk or share a flexible office space.
They give you the opportunity to stand with ease without interrupting your workflow.
Tilting your head to the side to cradle a phone is not a great idea for long periods of time.
Tilting and holding your head in this position multiple times a day can cause neck pain later on.
If you do need your hands free to type etc, consider using a headset, these are now widely available and inexpensive to buy.
In short, incorporating these small changes in to your day will go a long way to helping you improve your posture.
Why not see how many you can incorporate into your day today?

“This stool may look a bit weird but it’s a wonderful piece of kit if you spend a lot time sitting in front of a computer like me. It makes it feel natural to sit up straight without slumping. In fact you can feel it tightening your ‘core’ muscles. It’s a mini workout at your desk without any pain or strain. Best of all I’ve had no lower back pain since I started using it two months ago.”

Anthony and Jayne were recently in San Francisco for their daughter’s birthday. By chance they received invitations to meet musicians, large business leaders and a chiropractor all of whom expressed huge interest in our posture related products.
Our Saddle Stools happen to be hugely more comfortable than the more cumbersome and costly local alternatives – especially for musicians. They were also felt to be lighter and easier to transport by air worldwide – a huge benefit to touring musicians particularly.
Since my first involvement as part of the ‘Education Committee’ for BackCare the charity promoting healthier backs and good posture, and our consequential financial support, a slow understanding has emerged of how bad posture, a lack of exercise and the carrying of too heavy back packs is causing real pain and consequential damage, some life long, to children as early as primary school age, much of it caused by bad school furniture.
Evidence shows a growing problem with children complaining of discomfort and the sort of pain stultifying concentration and learning. Teenagers and especially teenage girls are having not only their school life ruined but are increasingly in real pain.
Recent BackCare demonstrations reported in both the press and on TV serve to demonstrate areas of distress. Visit the ‘Downloads’ section of this site and read leaflets, written in association with world respected authorities on the subject. Also, visit the BackCare charity’s own website at www.backcare.org.uk for even more reports and background reading on the issue.
The consequences of poor seating especially from early years is detrimental to our learning, long-term health and to our comfort.
