It all started with a desire to comfort a father when he needed it most.
The idea for Tausi came to founder Janice Shokrian in 2018, when visiting her father in a nursing home. Sleeping upright in his chair was incredibly uncomfortable, and causing him a lot of neck pain. She wanted to help him be more comfortable, and provide support for his head and neck. Pillows and props kept slipping, and would not stay in position, and ultimately did not offer enough support. She knew there had to be a better way.
