about our brand

PB Healthcare is a division of the Posture Balance™ organisation in Melbourne, formerly known as the TSS Group of Companies.

For over 20 years, we have manufactured customised and highly regarded brands such as Therapod™ seating, and VTEQ™ mattresses and pillows.

In addition, we have supplied specialty healthcare designs including recliners, bariatric seating and wheelchair backs/seats.

In many cases, the solutions which we provide are of a bespoke nature, where we have successfully customised an outcome to meet a specific need.

In these situations, we will often work with an Occupational Therapist, a Case Worker and the client themselves in order to be able to determine the most appropriate modification, and this can be done in conjunction with the NDIS program.

Following our brand launch of Posture Balance in 2018, we have continued to expand our product ‘portfolio’ and this has resulted in the creation of PB Healthcare – a new and dedicated focus on wellbeing and health that is now available.

Our focus is on providing optimal Australian-Made solutions for the Daily Living, Rehabilitation and Wellness aspects of the community and presenting them in one comprehensive web-site.

Products can be viewed at our Coburg North showroom, and are available nationally via our network of accredited distributors.


It is widely recognised that providing office-seating that is not fit for purpose can cause new and more complex issues to occur, due to poor support and incorrect posture.

Our range of Bariatric Seating has been developed to suit users up to 300kg, and with pressure-relieving foams and seat-sizing which is made-to-order we seek to avoid additional health issues such as Sciatica, pressure sores and reduced circulation.

These designs incorporate aspects such as a 6 ‘fin’ base (extra stability), HygroTeq foam (improved pressure distribution) and back height adjustment (increased postural support) are just some of the unique features that are available.

These products are available nationally via our Posture Balance distributor network, and fittings/assessments can be arranged at our Coburg North Assessment Centre which are conducted in a personal and professional setting.


Only products that meet the strict rules approved by the Australian Federal Government are entitled to display the Australian Made trademark. Posture Balance is officially licensed to use the Australian Made marking logo on our products.

We maintain a strong commitment to ensuring our seating products meet local & international standards with certification undertaken by AFRDI or other equivalent testing laboratories overseas.

All business systems and process are audited annually by SAI Global – and we maintain a Quality Assured accreditation to: ISO 9001:2008


We take this opportunity to confirm that the bExact range of ergonomic seating is available to be sold on a GST Free basis, due to ATO Private Ruling #1051668105109
