POY Finalist: Personal lift
Finalist in Safety in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The LiftPod FS60 lifts provide an alternative to working on ladders and scaffolding. The LiftPod FS60 is ANSI A92.3-2006/CSA B354.1-04 compliant and promotes safety by combining lightweight portability with a secure work platform.
It doesn't require an OSHA-regulated two-man operation because one worker can complete tasks with a 360-degree range of motion in an enclosed platform. The FS60 weighs only 130 lbs—each of its three components weighs about 50 lbs—and can be assembled in less than 30 seconds.
