Where are we?

Who are we?

We are an independent, family-run business and we specialise in providing a wide range of back care products and back-friendly furniture with what is one of the best selections to be found anywhere in the UK. Our aim is to help you improve the comfort of both your home, working and travel environments.

The business has been trading for over 25 years, the last 20 in our current Ivybridge showrooms. We became a limited company in 2006. The directors are Martin and Fran Coard who, together with the other members of the sales team have had many years experience in retailing back care products and back friendly furniture. The retail showroom is open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Saturday. We're closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays, with the exception of Good Friday.

It is often difficult to choose products without trying them. Everyone differs in size and shape and so strongly suggest that you don't buy items such as beds, seating and office chairs based on pictures and descriptions alone. Although some products are more universal in application than others, our advice is to try before you buy. And the best way to do that is to call in to the showroom to see the selection of furniture and products that we have on display.

We appreciate feedback on our service, products and web site. If you would like to make any comments, just .

Thank you for visiting The Back Centre's web site and I'm glad you found some material useful enough to print out!
