Figure 11 shows an employee with the aid of a stocking cart placing products on the store shelves using both hands, which increases his efficiency. This device was also designed to reduce excessive bending, holding, and reaching when stocking shelves. The top shelf slides up and down to keep the shelf at a better position for stocking shelves, while minimizing excessive bending.
