Humantech Ergonomist Ryan Cowart Interviewed Ali Patterson Director of New Product Development at Magline

Humantech Ergonomist Ryan Cowart recently interviewed Ali Patterson, Director of New Product Development at Magline about the Glyde Hand Truck. Patterson explained the reason the innovative Glyde was developed. “Magline partnered with a group of designers and engineers out of MIT that worked with drivers of Anheuser Busch for three year collecting compelling information and feedback with early prototypes. Magline took the driver feedback and integrate it into the final design.”

Magline Glyde hand trucks greatly improve traction and control on stairways. Innovative tread crawlers can be lowered into place behind the main wheels to allow the truck to contact multiple stairs at once. The tread crawlers are easy to lower with a single hand motion and allow the employee to maintain control of the hand truck. Once the stairway is navigated, the tread crawlers are just as easy to retract for normal operation.

Magline offers solutions to move goods safely and efficiently across, down, and up the last 100 meters proven to reduce liability cost and increase efficiency of the delivery.
