Back Quality Ergonomics was founded by Dutch Physical Therapist Ernst Haaksma. After many years of experience as a therapist he decided to specialize in the design, selection and supply of ergonomic solutions. Back Quality Ergonomics started out as the RUAC, the Back Training and Advisory Centre in The Hague, founded in 1988.

Back Quality distinguishes itself from other companies by combining the specialized knowledge of the human body with the specific products and custom-made advice. Back Quality is the market leader in ergonomic stools in the Netherlands and has dealerships in more than 30 countries worldwide.
