LVC / Wireless Vacuum Cleaner

LVC
LVC

Many manufacturers are introducing wireless vacuum cleaners. However, the user feels burdened by the weight to place the function in a smaller volume.

If you grab onto the handle, the only place that supports the entire weight is the wrist. Handles are also usually located behind the product body and have additional strain on the center of gravity away from the user.

I came up with the idea from 'Lofstrand crutch'. This structure moves the handle's position forward of the body and supports it with the wrist and forearm. This reduces the burden by distributing the product's weight widely and moving the center of gravity toward the user.
