Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2015 -- Late last fall, Humantech Ergonomics reviewed the Magline Self-Stabilizing hand truck, which was reviewed by independent Humantech Ergonomics. Senior Consultant and Ergonomics Engineer Michael Hoonhorst, explained the 4 categories of the 4 star review in a Humantech video: impact on ergonomic risk factors, adjustability, innovation, and intuitiveness. Hoonhorst noted, "We review on a four star rating scale. The 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." The Self-Stabilizing technology includes Rotacaster wheels. The fixed orientations of the main wheel allows forward and reverse movement without fighting a swivel caster offset, while the peripheral rollers facilitate turning, rotational, lateral, and diagonal movement. When navigating turns this also eliminates all skipping associated with fixed wheels making maneuvering product deliveries more efficient.
