During a project performed for an Aluminium Plant, Mawashi has developped an Ergonomic Belt to enhance the individual transport of a Plant Crane Controller. An operator use this instrument to control the motion of molten metal transfer crucibles. Weighting about 8 lbs, the controller is positionned in front of the body and has control levers operated manually.
Load transfer on the central axis of the body
The Load Transfer Belt designed by Mawashi is body-moulded, semi-rigid and adjustable to fit different sizes. It integrates two Aluminium Lateral Telescopic Arms which hold a support tray. The lateral arms transfer the load located in front of the Pelvis to the Central Vertical Axis of the body. The load is repositionned in a way that the Skeletal System supports it more easely, which reduces tensions and muscular fatigue.
