Descrizione

This is an app allowing users to analyse the lifting and carrying technique of a human. This can be done by using the camera of a smartphone to pick up a person while lifting an object, mark certain parts of the body with a few points, and then enter the weight of the person's weight, gender, and age. Based on the information, the app determines the load on the intervertebral discs. This is displayed and explained on a scale. The result can be sent by e-mail. In addition, you will find in the app concrete tips for improving the lifting and carrying technology. 

The free app is designed for anyone who wants to analyse and improve lifting and carrying techniques and can be used in all lifting situations.
