Pushing aid for shopping trolleys
In supermarkets and shopping malls, workers have to push a number of shopping trolleys back to the trolley parking place. Pushing trolleys is a physically demanding work that may put workers at risk of muskuloskeletal dieseases. EDEKA in Minden (Germany) developped a pushing aid for trolleys using an electric motor and several safety devices to allow moving the trolleys safely. The shopping trolley pushing aid helps workers to move the trolleys and therefore help older workers to stay at workforce as long as possible.
