Greatest Ergonomic Risks Addressed by Rotacaster

Rotacaster Addresses Greatest Ergonomic Risks to Workers anywhere who either lift or move material

Sept. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- In an article by Sara Pearson Spectre in Materials Handling Product News, James Anderson from Lista International is quoted "By adopting tasks, workstations, tools and equipment to fit the worker, improving ergonomics reduces physical stress and eliminates many potentially serious, disabling work-related musculoskeletal disorders."
Rotacaster Wheel Limited is an Australian company with a focus on innovative product design.  Rotacaster is a patented multi-directional wheel quickly becoming the alternative to the swivel caster. The Rotacaster is a sturdy, robust wheel, adaptable to a vast array of applications and it overcomes many of the limitations associated with the traditional swivel caster wheel.
The article lists a table based on information from US Occupational Safety and Health Administration which reviews key ergonomic risk factors. The key risks factors addressed by Rotatruck include:

o   Force:  The Rotatruck substantially reduces the force required by an operator.   
o   Repetition:  The Rotatruck reduces repetition and exertion  
o   Awkward Position:  The Rotatruck reduces the bending required when pulling back.
Rotacaster’s Managing Director Peter McKinnon noted, “We have taken the opportunity to review each of the listed risk factors, demonstrating just how effective the Rotatruck is in minimizing the potential risks.” noted McKinnon.  To view a complete comparison of the risk factors that are best handled by the Rotacaster Rotatruck go to http://www.rotacaster.com.au/images/RiskFactorsandtheRota....

Applications for the Rotacaster range from material handling equipment (hand trucks, trolleys, dollies, carts, skates) to shopping carts and luggage; from conveyor transfers, pipe rollers, and other inverted applications to robotics and patient lifts in medical settings.
