In a press conference, Ergologistics (Booth 1829) showcased two models of its new Lift’n Buddy ergonomic lift assist device: the Full-Back and the Half-Back.

The battery-powered Full-Back suits nearly any portable lifting application. Able to lift 500-pound loads up to 37 inches, the Lift’n Buddy is designed to take the heavy out of heavy lifting, said company president Aaron Lamb. 

The Half-Back, which is lighter and completely portable, can lift 250 pounds and is built for everyday use in warehouses, manufacturing facilities and route-based delivery systems. 

Both models are remote-controlled, sport actuators designed to withstand harsh environments, and have the iconic feel of a traditional hand truck so end users can relate and easily adapt to their new buddies.  “Our mission is to improve safety, help customers save money, and save a few backs in the process,” added Lamb.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
