One-Handed Ergonomic Approach to Pliers/Cutters
- Created: Tuesday, 01 December 2009
A company seeks a new generation of precise, ergonomic pliers that virtually eliminates the effort that causes hand fatigue. Ideally, it would require the exertion of zero force to cut through Romex, strapping, or staples. The tool must provide one-handed operation and conform to a variety of grips a worker may use. It is preferable that the device use mechanical advantage rather than power, although self-contained power assist is acceptable. A battery pack or compressed air connection will not work.
