The challenge

Sewing machine hoistA lady with arthritis was unable to carry her sewing machine and lift it in and out of her car when she needed to take it to her sewing classes.

A lightweight trolley was designed incorporating a hoist that can lift the machine off a table. The trolley is then pushed outside to the car, the machine is lowered into the boot and the trolley is then folded up for the journey. The hoist is powered by an electric screwdriver with a rechargeable battery.

The client is now independent of any help to take her sewing machine to her sewing classes that are a very enjoyable part of her life.
