Bosse’s Ergonomic Shovel Takes a Load Off
Digging a hole in the dirt is a literal pain in the back – and neck, and shoulders, and arms. The ergonomic shovels from Bosse Tools use unique rotating handles to ease the strain on your body and make your digging projects far less strenuous.
Traditional shovels force you to move your body into unnatural positions and angles. By adding a rotating handle to the middle of the design, Bosse’s shovels allow the user to assume a more natural and comfortable hand position while eliminating the need to bend over too far.
Another benefit of the redesigned shovels is the U-shaped foot space above the shovels’ blades. Rather than having to stomp on one side or the other of the shovel’s handle, users apply pressure to the middle of the blade. This allows for greater power on the downward push and greatly decreased back strain.
Currently, the company offers spades, flathead shovels and snow shovels. All feature the unique ergonomic design that ensures you’ll never again be able to get out of doing yard work because of a sore back.
“Ergonomics (from the Greek word ergon meaning work, and nomoi meaning natural laws), is the science of refining the design of products to optimize them for human use. Human characteristics, such as height, weight, and proportions are considered, as well as information about human hearing, sight, temperature preferences, and so on.”
“The unique configuration of a Bosse Tool handle enables a greater
range of motion than traditional handles, extending functional use
through your entire wingspan. Using a Bosse handle enables you to be more upright allowing for longer work periods and more energy applied directly to the job, ultimately reducing stress on the your lower back.”
“The Bosse center grip with rotating and locking handle easily
accommodates for different applications, making for a more
functional and comfortable experience.”
