Today on Amplify Nursing, we talk with Taofiki Gafar-Schaner, co-founder of Frontier Innovation, Inc. During his experience as a bedside RN, Taofiki observed many opportunities for patient care improvement, which inspired him to launch a business focused on creating innovative healthcare products. With their SafeSeizure pads product, Frontier Health & Resources won the 2020 American Nurses Association Innovation Award, as well as the 2019 and 2020 Nightingale Innovation Awards.

Taofiki talks with us about how he became interested in nursing, the importance of drawing inspiration from bedside care, and how he navigated manufacturing and funding challenges in his journey to develop a new healthcare product.
