For nearly four decades, Comfort Discovered has been an integral part of the local community, serving its needs with dedication and care. In 2018, the business embarked on a transformative journey, relocating to a state-of-the-art facility in Hornsby. The move was a pivotal moment in the brand’s history, setting the stage for its evolution into Karis Life.
Rejimon Punchayil, the visionary behind this rebranding, sheds light on the inspiration behind the new name, Karis Life. “Compassion,” he notes, “is what our customers have always identified as our defining trait.” The name ‘Karis’ draws its roots from the Greek word ‘Charis,’ signifying goodwill, loving-kindness, favor, and grace. This name encapsulates the nurturing approach with which Karis Life addresses each customer’s unique circumstances.
Listening attentively and understanding individual needs are the cornerstones of our philosophy, enabling us to offer tailored, dignified, and independent living solutions. Karis Life isn’t merely a business; it’s your partner in the journey to regain independence with dignity.
With decades of industry knowledge and experience, the team at Karis Life is fervently dedicated to providing life-changing assistive technology solutions that enhance not only physical well-being but also the overall quality of life for every customer.
The genesis of Karis Life can be traced back to a chance encounter with an elderly woman struggling with mobility. This encounter stirred the founder, Rejimon Punchayil, to dedicate himself to helping vulnerable members of the community achieve a better quality of life, leading to the birth of Karis Life.
Rejimon Punchayil, the founder, is a seasoned professional with a wealth of experience spanning continents and industries, including manufacturing, international trade, and marketing. His vast expertise and genuine commitment to community well-being drive a knowledgeable and passionate team.
Together, they provide exceptional service and product solutions, while Rejimon remains at the helm, anticipating and addressing future challenges and trends within the assistive technology landscape.
“My highly experienced, trained and motivated team, sharing the mission and value of Karis Life is the force that delivers the Karis Life promise” – Rej Punchayil, Founder Karis Life
