We’re pleased to announce that Purifas® CEO Ibrahim Samaan has been named a finalist in the 2020-2021 Allied Health Awards for Physiotherapist of the Year!
The Australian Allied Health Awards bring together the nation’s finest Allied Health professionals to recognise their work and dedication.
A Physiotherapist on a mission, Ibrahim has been nominated for his commitment to therapy hygiene. Through his experience in public and private allied health sectors, Ibrahim saw first-hand the lack of guidance and guidelines surrounding hygiene during treatment. In particular, he noticed the infectiveness of using cradle paper and towels as standard practice during prone treatments.
Ibrahim launched Purifas® in October 2019 with a vision to re-define standards in therapy hygiene and help therapists improve their duty of care. He invented the Purifas® FaceShield™ – a revolutionary hygiene solution unique to the therapy industry. It is the first and only product worldwide to provide full face hole coverage and reduce the transmission of bacteria during prone treatments. The FaceShield™ has since caught the attention of therapists worldwide and Purifas® has expanded globally.
Over 750 nominations from Allied Health professionals were considered in this award program. Winners will be determined by five key criteria:
The current climate has resulted in a steep rise in inflation with no immediate let up in sight. This in turn has had a massive impact on businesses, with operating and production costs increasing exponentially. How will your business survive? What strategies have you adopted to guarantee your survival? One sure-fire way is to pass on some of these costs to your customers and now could be just the time to do it.
As a multi-award-winning business, Purifas has remained steadfastly committed to providing a range of fit-for-purpose hygiene solutions for therapy professionals that offers unrivalled clinical protection and comfort, which is why we are excited and proud to announce the launch of the long-awaited BodyShield and BodyShield Dispenser.
Two new and innovative pillowcases have been added to the Purifas® range of hygiene solutions for therapy professionals — a single-use recyclable pillowcase that acts as a physical barrier, reducing the transmission of pathogens from client to pillow and vice versa, and a reusable pillowcase that can be sanitised between clients simply by wiping with an antibacterial wipe.
