Senior citizens often encounter many difficulties with their luggage when they travel. Retrieving something from their suitcase, for instance, requires that they bend over or kneel, which can be uncomfortable and taxing for their lower back or their knees. Furthermore, many senior citizens are not strong enough to lift heavy suitcases onto higher surfaces such as tables or chairs.
Easytake is a mechanism that uses the law of the lever to lift suitcases. With a few simple actions, senior citizens can move their suitcases to a surface where retrieving objects is more convenient and less burdensome, thereby making suitcases easier to use.
