My name is Maayan Izinger and I am a physiotherapist with expertise in seating, geriatrics and orthopedics.
I am honored to present the Ophir Cushion to prevent sliding and pressure ulcers in wheelchairs.
The cushion was developed to provide a quality, reliable and affordable seating solution to wheelchair users.
I developed the cushion as result of my dilemma as a physical therapist in a nursing facility when faced with the choice between buying a few expensive cushions to prevent pressure ulcers for a limited number of patients versus buying cheap and simple cushions for everyone.
I wanted the best for my patients and I decided to develop a cushion for them which would both prevent pressure ulcers and sliding, which is a major cause of pressure ulcers itself.
In consultation with professionals and after many iterations, I succeeded in achieving the perfect cushion, in terms of pressure ulcer prevention, sliding prevention and overall comfort.
My goal was to offer wheelchair users a cushion whose quality exceeds that of extremely high-priced cushions but with an affordable price tag.
The Ophir Cushion represents a breakthrough in the industry and a standard of quality for wheelchair users at a realistic price, ideal for those who struggle to maintain and improve their posture which seated.
Wishing you health and comfort,
Maayan Izinger, Physiotherapist
