Snir Azlan, 32, married +1, grew up in Kiryat Ata and recently moved to Ra’anana.
Snir served as a combat soldier in the “Golani” brigade. In 2009, after about ten months in the army, he was wounded in “Operation Cast Lead”, with a severe injury, primarily to his right hand. After nearly three years of rehabilitation and two years of volunteering with at-risk youth, Snir completed his medical studies at the “Technion” and is now working in pediatric surgery. Snir also loves extreme sports like skiing and scuba diving.
The challenge: Ski protectors for the right arm and the left leg
Snir loves to ski but recently finds himself more afraid of getting badly injured. He currently has very uncomfortable ski protectors that press hard on his elbow and forearm. In addition, the existing protectors mainly protect certain parts of the forearm and not all of it, and the same goes for the shin protector. The current protectors cannot be moved around, and they cause significant discomfort. Snir is looking for a solution to guard and protect the entire affected area and be comfortable for use.
