The germ of our story was subconsciously laid years ago, when Azeem Merchant was just a boy. One festive Eid day, after a sumptuous feast enjoyed by the whole family, Azeem noticed that his mother was not her cheerful self and retired before the celebrations were over. When asked what the problem was, she said her calves and lower back were painfully sore after spending hours in the kitchen, preparing the elaborate festive fare.
Since then, watching the ladies of the family work in the kitchen, stand for hours completing different chores, has been a matter of concern. But it seemed there was little Azeem could do to help.
Recently, when Azeem’s company signed a joint venture with a German leader in ergonomic mats for industrial applications and saw for himself the tangible benefits, he thought immediately of his mother and that incident many years ago. “Why can’t I offer the same ergonomics for my mother? She, and so many others like her, stand for hours in the kitchen, silently putting up with the pain and discomfort. Surely I can use the same advanced technology to help them and make their life more comfortable!”
Today, we present Comfeet, an anti-fatigue mat specially designed and manufactured in Germany, to improve daily life in India. At home or the workplace, wherever people spend long hours standing, Comfeet anti-fatigue mats promote health, prevent injury, and help users stand comfortably for hours without placing undue stress on their bodies.
