Truck Mechanics Ergonomics

Truck Mechanics Platform Addressing Back Injury


Back injury and muscle strain with insecure footing forced off balance positioning and disallowed truck engine repair tasks.


The injury caused the inability of mechanic to bend forward for work tasks or to lift engine components. Inability to work effectively.  Severe pain at forward lean posture.


Specialized moveable platform for stable footing allows control of body position enabling all repair tasks. Stand-up capability for maneuverability/storage. Jib crane adaptable.


Full-time return-to-work without pain exacerbation. Enables movement of components via jib crane from the engine compartment to workbench and back without lifting.
