Figure 13 shows an employee stocking small goods from a tote (container) held in position by the stocking cart. By tilting the tote, awkward postures involving the shoulders, arms, and wrist are reduced, which lessens muscle fatigue and improves productivity. This type of stocking cart is particularly useful in stores where small items are stocked and sold, such as in the health and beauty aids departments in grocery stores.
