Meet the Oxigreen, the Rotostairs, and the Eitan Mattress – all named for energetic and self-motivated people working at Yad Sarah to bring us the best in modern technology

The world's highest quality oxygen generator – the Oxigreen – is named after Yad Sarah's former head of special equipment and now its super volunteer, Meir Greenwald, who devotes his life to finding suitable rehabilitation accessories for every problem and is probably the world's greatest oxygen expert. The portable oxygen generator that can now be borrowed from Yad Sarah branches is one of the best in the world. The generator weighs only one kilo (2.2 pounds) and makes it so easy for usually homebound people to leave their homes and enjoy being out in the world. David Rot, who is now responsible for special equipment at Yad Sarah, is constantly on the alert for new devices that can improve the lives of people with disabilities. When Yad Sarah added a stair climber to their regular inventory, it was decided to name the new equipment after David. The name is a Hebrew play on the word for stairs – madragot – combined with David's last name, Rot. When a person who is confined to a wheelchair needs to leave the house and the house has steps, usually the only option is to carry the wheelchair and its occupant up or down the stairs. Not a pleasant experience for anyone! The madragrot are already available at Yad Sarah's main service centers and at their Yasam stores for the purchase of medical and rehabilitative equipment. The madragrot is the world's best and safest stair climber and we are proud to name it after the man dedicated to helping so many people receive the special equipment they need. We already have the oxigreen and the madragrot, two innovations introduced by Yad Sarah to improve the lives of so many. Now we also have the most innovative and advanced solution available for those suffering from pressure sores. The mattress heals pressure wounds, and proudly carries the name of our hardworking head of the Logistics Department, Eitan Dahari. We call it the Eitan Mattress. This is the name to remember when asking for a mattress suitable for the elderly and any patient suffering from bedsores. Not everyone needs an innovative and advanced mattress. There are those who can make do with older mattresses designed to prevent the formation of pressure sores. Unfortunately, there are those who already suffer from such sores, which can be very dangerous to the patient. These, according to the recommendation of experts in the field, require the Eitan Mattress, the mattress that not only prevents pressure sores but also treats them. This mattress, too, is the result of the spirit of innovation that is common to Yad Sarah experts – of the highest quality and developed in accordance with the needs raised by the Logistics Division, under the dedicated management of Eitan Dahari. Eitan was the person who saw the need and took upon himself the task of finding a solution and making sure that it became available to Yad Sarah customers. It is only fitting that the mattress carry his name.Once again, Yad Sarah takes a leading role in introducing pioneering products that can help so many people lead a better life.
