Our Story

At ErgoErgo, we’re passionate about our mission:

Enhancing lives through healthy sitting.

We also in believe in doing work you love, reading great books, and making time to celebrate life with friends and family.

ErgoErgo is the product of years of engineering and constant quality control.
Each finished product is carefully inspected at our Iowa factory.

Our company started with a bad back and a good question: What’s the healthiest way to sit? A few years of research and experimentation followed. The result was ErgoErgo: a simple, inexpensive design that helps relieve the back, improve posture, deepen breathing, and even enhance focus and concentration.

As a woman-owned small business, we believe in people before profit. Although it costs us a bit more, we are proud to manufacture in the USA. We keep our margins low to make our products accessible to as many people as possible.
