iTip Handles – Stand 14

Adding iTip handles to your tippable apparatus is the safest  and easiest way to manoeuvre and tip your loaded wheelbarrow, sack trolley or cement mixer.  Also of great benefit when fitted onto wheelchairs and stretchers or anything else that you benefit from comfortably and safely changing position of your grip. They prevent strains and other injuries and reduce the risk of muscular skeletal disorder (MSD).

Rather than our own words, here’s some we have received from Professionals…

HSE Professional…
Health and Safety professionals always apply the hierarchy of control when assessing risks. Often the solution for a manual handling task is to reduce the risk of injury by introducing wheelbarrows, trolleys or sack trucks into our task design. However, this introduces new (often forgotten) ergonomic risks in the form of:

  • Fixed handles with no flexibility of movement
  • Difficult grip in a fixed position
  • Need to change grip for the final movement of tipping the load – creating jarring action.
  • Increase the effectiveness of your controls by eliminating poor ergonomic handling of your manual handling equipment and removing likelihood of jarring injuries – you no longer need to rely on training alone
  • HSE’s Risk assessment of pushing and pulling (RAPP) tool – inclusion of itip handles on your equipment when completing this assessment will significantly improve your outcome

Director and Clinical Lead Physiotherapist…
​It is always good news to find a product that reduces the risk of injury and makes a task easier and quicker.  These handles enable the user to steer the wheelbarrow with more ease, reducing the twisting action of the spine to go around corners.

When it comes to emptying the wheelbarrow they allow for a reduced tipping angle –  excellent  for reducing  strain on the joints at the back of the spine, and  reduce the pressure on the discs between the vertebra. They allow for a better biomechanical efficiency in the arms and hands, making it easier on the joints of the shoulders, elbows and wrists. The emptying is done with the joints in a more mid-range rather than at the extreme end of joints’ extension.

When doing any work involving repetitive tasks with a wheelbarrow, a device which reduces risk of injury is good news for both health and safety and user experience.”
