Reducing the risk of back injury

The Personal Lift Assist Device (PLAD) is an on-body ergonomic aid that reduces the risk of low back pain and injury by assisting the user's lower back muscles while promoting a safe lifting style during lifting and forward bending work tasks.

PLAD will revolutionize the way companies manage their ergonomic risk associated with low back pain and injury.
