Challenge: A portable seat cushion
Israeli Defense Forces Veteran and above-the-knee amputee, Assaf is not able to sit down for long periods, as it generates tremendous pain in his amputated limb. He is looking for a seat cushion to relieve this pain by supporting his limb.
Assaf is an Israeli Defense Forces Veteran and was injured in the line of duty as a Deputy Sheriff. As an above-the-knee amputee, Assaf is not able to sit down for long periods, as it generates tremendous pain in his amputated limb which has CRPS.
He is looking for a seat cushion that would allow him to get back to what he loves, especially spending time with his daughter, whether to go out for an ice cream or watch her school play. He has also started competing as a Disabled Strongman athlete and would use the cushion for seated lifts.
