Easy Lift / Lever

Easy Lift
Easy Lift

Lifting heaving objects is exhausting.

Even fit people tire from repetitive lifting.
The initial lift is especially difficult.  The lifter risks pinching his fingers between the object and the ground, and loosing their grip and dropping the object if a tight grasp is not achieved.

Lift-Helper leverages simple physics to addresses these challenges.

It allows the lifter to use their feet to create space under the object thereby reducing the chance of injury and the effort required.

Lift-helper makes lifting natural and easy.
