Our Story

We are Putnams, an award winning business based in Devon on a mission to bring comfort solutions to the world.

The daily comfort of our customers has been our priority since we began making health care and back products in 1979. We believe everyone deserves to be comfortable.

For over 40 years, we have come to be leaders in creating products that provide comfort solutions recommended by medical professionals - from pain relief products for everyday use to those speciality products that help you in the office, home or even in the car.

We are focused on providing you with solutions to improve your quality of life - whether that be because of back pain, posture, neck pain, sleep apnoea, acid reflux or to help with specific regions of the body from coccyx relief to when pregnant.

Quality, care and attention to detail are so important to us and that is why we’ve supplied the NHS for over 39 years and are stocked by specialist outlets across the world.

If you’re unsure which product is right for you or want to discuss what you are looking for, talk to us as we’d love to help.

From our family to yours
James and Katie Putnam
Putnams was established by James and Katie Putnam (husband and wife) in 1979 in Islington, London. Beginning by providing taxi seats, smaller backrests and lumbar supports for London’s taxis and drivers in need of comfort solutions, Putnams was born. Putnams has since located to Devon, expanded its range of comfort products and the rest is history.

Putnams is now run by their two children (Hedley and Bubbles Putnam) who carry the passion to change lives with the best possible products to improve comfort and quality of life.
Our business is truly a family one, many other families are part of our team and have also passed down their skills within the business to generations within their own.
