After seeing how expensive and ineffective most safe bathing products are for seniors and those with limited mobility, we decided to design our own solution. Sit and Shower was created to improve the lives of those with limited mobility by experienced engineers who believe that we can improve lives through technology.

Samuel manages the daily operations, business development, partnerships and intellectual property for Sit & Shower and is also one of the co-inventors.

Previous experience includes developing a revolutionary breathable footwear technology and managing the fastest growing market for a USD billion dollar energy company.

Rico is a designer, educator and social entrepreneur. He is the Founder & CEO of Beyond Vision Projects (BVP), a newly founded social enterprise that enhances the quality of life of the visually impaired (VI), elderly with low-vision and people with learning difficulties, and focuses on social inclusiveness, accessibility and employment opportunities—in particular the aspects of receiving visual information, and enhancing mental image building.
