Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2014 -- Magline, Inc., the innovative lightweight route distribution company, and Rotacaster, maker of the first multi-directional industrial wheel, developed the Self-Stabilizing truck, 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 in a Humantech video: impact on ergonomic risk factors, adjustability, innovation, and intuitiveness.

Hoonhorst noted, “We review on a four star rating scale. The first category is the impact on ergonomic risk factors. 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.
