Ergonomic Considerations of New Truck Rolls Away with High Marks
Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2014 -- The ergonomic consideration of using omniwheels was recently reviewed. A Self-Stabilizing truck with onmiwheels was just reviewed by independent Humantech Ergonomics. Michael Hoonhorst, Senior Consultant and Ergonomics Engineer for Humantech, explained the 4 categories of the 4 star review included: impact on ergonomic risk factors, adjustability, innovation, and intuitiveness. Hoonhorst noted the first category is the impact on ergonomic risk factors and the reviewed truck can go up curbs by pivoting the front wheels up the curb and lifting the rear wheels on to the curb which saves a lot of time and effort for the person using the truck.
When navigating turns this also eliminates all skipping associated with fixed wheels making maneuvering product deliveries more efficient. A new delivery solutions newsletter, Delivering Excellence will report on the quality of material handling processes at delivery to retail outlets.
