Fitting instructions for your Liftsmart Carrying Harness
Fitting instructions for smaller waists
Yes. Liftsmart accommodates almost every height and build, with multiple points of adjustment. Once you have adjusted Liftsmart the first time, you will not have to adjust Liftsmart again.
A platform is fixed to a belt that’s worn around the user’s waist. The platform has a singular purpose – to assist with supporting heavy loads. The harness tethers this platform directly to the strongest areas of the body. Liftsmart works by evenly and effectively distributing weight to the areas most capable of supporting it. When lifting and carrying heavy or cumbersome items, the arms are a bottleneck of strength. Liftsmart is so effective because it bypasses the arms and upper-body and gets power straight from the source – the legs, shoulders and hips.
This makes a drastic difference to the ease of carrying items, and how long you can carry them for. Wearing Liftsmart you’ll be surprised by what you are capable of. In addition to this, Liftsmart will force you to adopt better posture when lifting and carrying heavy objects. It will force you to carry the weight closer to your body, which prevents you from leaning forward. When carrying weight off balance, you’re more likely to pull muscles and strain your back. Now that the weight is closer to your centre of gravity, your balance will improve. All of these factors work together to significantly reduce the chance of injury whilst wearing Liftsmart.
The three points of contact are two hands and one foot, or one hand and two feet. These are your points of contact with the environment. Normally, when carrying a load in your hands, you surrender one or two points of contact. The problem is that workplace health and safety studies and organisations all around the world have identified this as a risk. You need a third point of contact to support your body while mounting or dismounting a vehicle, stepping off a platform, climbing stairs, ascending a ladder or just moving obstacles out of your path.
Liftsmart frees at least one hand from the need to secure what you are carrying. On a level surface placing just one hand on top of your load is usually enough to keep it there. Your other hand is unimpeded and ready when you need it. Hold on to hand rails, move obstacles out of the way, open doors, or grab the rungs on a ladder. All this improves safety. It builds confidence, and in turn, it makes all those tricky jobs and tasks around the house and in the workplace much easier.
No. A study conducted by the University of Auckland found that Liftsmart placed no additional strain on the lower back. On the contrary, the added stability safeguards the back against injury whilst lifting. Back injuries should be prevented at all cost. They are a leading contributor to missed work days, and unfortunately back pain is the most common form of job-related disability.
Muscle fatigue leads to muscle injuries. Logically, by preventing fatigue the Liftsmart can drastically reduce injuries. What’s more, it ensures correct posture when carrying and lifting loads by holding the weight closer to the body. The Liftsmart improves balance and prevent injuries from over-extension or rotation.
Having a free hand to open doors, without precariously balancing a load on your knee, or to hold the handrail while you safely and confidently descend flights of stairs, might not sound like much, but these little things all add up to make a world of difference.
Liftsmart is suited to all applications and industries where people are required to personally lift and move objects. If you were looking for some examples, how about…
These are just a small sample of the industries where Liftsmart provides real benefits to employee productivity and safety.
