For 50 years, Sky Hook has focused on increasing the manual lifting ability of operators, preventing dangerous lifting injuries and increasing operational efficiency. With the increased industry focus on ergonomics over the past decade, the design team at Sky Hook has been working hand-in-hand with their customers to develop custom Sky Hooks to best fit those custom applications. The push for ergonomic lifting solutions is driven by the companies who are diligently searching for them. The Sky Hook’s ability to be customized to meet those exact needs make it the obvious choice to prevent lifting related injuries.
Focused on bringing human abilities and limitations into the design of the Sky Hook lifting device, the new Ergonomic Package includes elements which take into consideration operator biomechanics, anthropometry and required skill level. The features of this modification package are designed to improve not only how much force is required to operate the Sky Hook, but also how the user understands and interacts with the device. An ergonomic product should make sense to the person using it. As much as possible it should fit the user’s natural movements, limiting strain on joints and muscles. The Sky Hook lifting device, equipped with the Ergonomic Package, is a huge step in that direction.
