Slide-Up Barrow
Slide-Up Barrow

The small farms still operated on labor with average age of 64 years old in Taiwan, up to 67 years old in Japan under the aging influence globally. Lots of work are difficult for them to do, such as, bending over to take and move heavy basket which is full of fruit/vegetable. It will cause waist-injury. The Slide-Up Barrow is the moving device with rubber-roller plate which can be used to move the package upward/downward on it easily. The most valued feature is to decrease the waist-injury.
