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:
WORLD'S FIRST RESEARCH ― A significant amount of government funding is consistently allocated to research into infection risks and prevention in hospital environments, however, the same can't be said for therapy environments. This lack of research prompted us to commission our own preliminary research into the infection risks associated with therapy beds, with a focus on the transmission of both bacteria and saliva. The results are in and they will shock you!
Have you ever considered how much it really costs to use towels in your clinic? Not just the cost of purchasing the towels but the ongoing cost of using and maintaining the towels? We have. And we think you’ll be surprised!
You asked and we delivered! Our FacePad covers are now available in a wipeable version and they’re the epitome of convenience… simply clean and sanitise using an antibacterial wipe and the FacePad is ready for your next client.
