Slider Cart / supermarkets cart

Slider Cart
Slider Cart

When we reach the checkout counter in the supermarket, we need to lift the items from the cart to conveyor belt. Lifting heavy items out of the cart is difficult for some people, especially elderly. Therefore we designed Slider Cart to prevent the condition.The user just needs to step onto the pedal to activate hydraulic cylinders then the basket will be raised up. They can match the height of the base with that of the conveyor belt. When they push the cart, the bases of the basket will contract. Meanwhile, the items in basket will be pushed onto conveyor belt because the overlapping of the bases.
