THE GLYDE™ HAND TRUCK

Before, delivery professionals took goods down stairs on old-fashioned hand trucks, hunched over, bouncing down every step, and at constant risk of devastating lower-back injury. We’ve developed the GLYDE™ HAND TRUCK to offer safer delivery, reduced injury rate, lower liability cost to our customers. 


The majority of bars in Boston, MA have their beverage storage in cellars, as do bars in many other older cities—meaning many kegs and cases must go down stairs. Carrying a 160lb keg down stairs is dangerous.

The average delivery professional spends around 12-15 days on workers comp a year, and larger companies like Anheuser Busch budget tens of thousands of dollars for each injury. Even worse a driver’s quality of life is directly impacted as fatigue and muscle pain becomes part of their daily life.

FEATURES


FEATURES


FOLDING TREADS & BUILT-IN BRAKING

1. GLYDE's treads always contact two stairs, enabling smooth, controlled descent. 2. Built-in braking reduces the load and strain on delivery professionals. 3. And folding treads enable use on stairs and on level surfaces.


 

GLYDE's folding treads enables use on stairs & level surfaces. In combination with the built-in braking the acceleration of GLYDE™ varies dramatically in comparison to the traditional hand truck. The average peak acceleration of the GLYDE™ is 9X less than that of what is currently used.

 

REDUCED INJURY RATE

As the traditional hand truck crashed into each step, the user experience a huge jump in back-muscle activation. GLYDE™ travels smoothly down each step with much lower muscle activation. Overall, the GLYDE™ has 3X less average muscle strain & 8X less average peak muscle strain than the traditional hand truck.


 

 

The back strain charts clearly demonstrate that the primary force has been markedly decreased from the back muscles. In addition the jerky movements, which can lead to acute injury, have been removed.

The core of our design comes from the valuable feedback we received from delivery professionals. We test GLYDE™ with local Boston delivery professionals, making sure we nail key features. Here's what they had to say with our final product: 


"My old dolly would bounce & jar my elbows a lot, this one is just, smooth."
 
"[I] brought down 12 cases...felt like 6"
 
"It kicks butt with two kegs!"
 

 

"We have something really great here, that will not only make a difference in safety, but also in the longevity of our workforce."
