The story behind the tool.
We present to you the Hercules Dolly ™, the result of the labour of love of a man who has dedicated his life to helping others. This project started after Dr. Mouffarège introduced the Panel Carrier to entrepreneur, Gaétan Sauvageau, in 2017. Gaétan was simply amazed by the simplicity and the effectiveness of this tool that could be they key to preventing so many injuries. The two men decided to join forces to get this amazing tool out on the market.
Dr. Richard Moufarrège
A doctor's invention
The journey of a creative man.
Although a leader in the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Moufarrège always had the mindset of an inventor. That is to say the continual desire to find a solution to any given situation or problem. It was through building his own house that the idea of the Hercules Dolly ™ came about. While he was forced to move piles of plywood and drywall panels, on his own, he became aware of high level of effort required and, as a doctor, the potential for injury.
It was then that he drew a first design for the simple and effective tool that became the Hercules Dolly ™.
First and foremost, a man of science (doctor, plastic surgeon), Dr. Moufarrège was born in Bois-de-Boulogne (Lebanon). Having an exceptional creative sense led him to also pursue his passions as an artist (sculptor). He first began putting his creative skills to work in his field of expertise by inventing the mammoplasty Moufarrège (by the posterior total pedicle, 1979), the tummy of Mouffarrège (Horseshoe, 1997) and the Moufarrège apparatus for the mechanized intradermal suture (patented in the United States, 1997). He also pursued his passion for teaching as Assistant Professor (1980-1989), then an associate professor (1989 at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Montreal-Université).
