Energy storage broom / Public goods

Energy storage broom

It is difficult for sanitationmen working outdoors in cold weather to keep their hands warm, even if they wear thermal equipment such as gloves. The Long-term continuous cold condition of hands will seriously affect their physical health and work efficiency.
This design combines the hand warmer with the working tools of sanitationmen, stores energy through sweep and releases heat when necessary to provide continuous warmth for sanitationmen’s hands, ensuring their physical health and work efficiency
