A message from our founder
I came from a "we can fix-it" family. We fixed everything ourselves, from cars to cabinets. I enjoyed the problem-solving and discovery and came to treasure the tools that helped me do it well. Later as a physical therapist, my joy in finding the right tool for the task natually extended to finding the right tools for my patients as well. Thus began my interest in occupational health and ergonomics.
I founded Health By Design in 1998 for the purpose of manufacturing a single product: The Bambach Saddle Seat. This innovative seat was developed nearly 17 years earlier by my colleague Mary Gale, an Australian occupational therapist. At the time, conventional seating manufacturers were reluctant to invest in an unknown concept. I took on North American manufacturing and distribution with enthusiasm. Other novel products followed, and so this little business has grown.
