Bosse Tools wants to provide you with ergonomic tools and their 21st Century Shovel has been reinvented to make it easier to use. Their goal is to help you get more done in less time – while preventing you from getting injured. With traditional shovels, you can get a sore back, wrists, and arms from twisting and tweaking in unnatural positions – all of which the Ergonomic Shovel eliminates thanks to its innovative design. The shovel utilizes the body’s strongest muscles to alleviate these issues by returning you to a more natural position. Bosse Tools provides an ergonomic benefit for its users.
The shovel will help improve posture and reduce back strain, as well as minimize shoulder injury by by making sure any and all lifting tasks are two-handed and in front of the body, which evenly distributes the loads across the shoulders and chest. Its center handle rotates so you can customize your hand position for any job you’re working on. So by angling the handle towards the place where you will pitch the snow or dirt, you can do your job in one single motion – dig, scoop, and pitch – all in one. The foot stomp also allows for added force to be applied by the foot through the center of the tool and will be an added featured only if they reach their stretch goal. If you pledge $79 or more, you’ll be able to choose from a spade, flat head or snow shovel.
