Meet your expert team
Hi! We are Sytske, Fetske, Mimi and Roderick. We are all Dutch. All four of us are passionate about helping people with physical disabilities, but from a different angle. Fetske and Sytske are renowned pelvic physiotherapists and Mimi and Roderick own a company that custom makes office chairs for people with physical disabilities. Together we have an extensive knowledge of the pelvic (floor) area and the (sitting) problems that you experience with it. Therefore we have joined forces to create a cushion that you can also sit on with your pelvic (floor) problems.
Why we have created Carrie
Sytske and Fetske both therapeutically help many clients that are looking for something to sit on, while Mimi and Roderick make 9 to 5 sitting possible for people with disabilities each day. We have found that many people with pelvic (floor) problems are in need of a seat cushion that they can take with them.
If you have pelvic (floor) problems you should also be able to sit wherever you want. After searching the market we didn’t find cushions that could give the right support. So we decided to combine our expertise and make it ourselves.
At the first meeting we found common ground: All four of us are passionate about helping people. After discussing the necessary features of the cushion we turned our idea into reality. Carrie Cushion is the result. Usefulness is our main focus so we hope it benefits you. If it doesn’t, just return it within 50 days and you’ll receive your money back.
Handmade in Holland with love and care
Carrie is proudly produced by EMTEK Ergonomics, the Dutch company owned by siblings Mimi and Roderick. As a Dutch family-owned artisan business we understand the importance of attention to detail. Each product that leaves the company is carefully crafted by hand and subjected to a thorough quality test.
