Disability Work Tools
The mission of Disability Work Tools (DWT) is to make adaptive tools readily available so people can independently perform hands-on tasks in spite of injury, aging or disabling condition. We motivate active people to be productive by using tools that improve efficiency and minimize physical pain. We challenge people to use foresight, selecting the best tools for the job, so they can work longer and feel better.
Air-ride seat Tractor and Construction Equipment
Air-suspension heavy equipment seats cushion the worker's back from the sharp bumping and jarring due to driving on uneven terrain. Soothe your aching back while operating heavy equipment. Dampen the jarring, jolting and jerking and enjoy a smoother ride with less pain. This reduces the stress to the lower back caused by hours spent driving equipment. The typical mechanical suspension systems on heavy equipment do not adequately dampen the jolting bumps experienced on rough terrain for operators with back impairments.
Deckmate Semi Trailer Ladder
The Deckmate Semi Trailer Ladder helps workers access the cargo area of the truck without taking such large steps or “jumping”. The cargo bed of a truck is 36” or higher. To reach something stored in the truck, the worker must climb or jump which may be impossible for someone with a disability. The Deckmate Ladder folds up out of the way when using the truck, then folds down to make a convenient ladder and grab bar when needed.
