Medical Validation
"The back strain charts clearly demonstrate that the primary force has been markedly decreased from the back muscles. In addition, the jerky movements, which can lead to acute injury, have been removed."

-Jacqueline Napoletano, M.D.

Reduced Acceleration
The acceleration varied dramatically between Glyde and the traditional hand truck. Each of the red peaks corresponds to the tradional truck connecting with each step, while Glyde went down smoothly with minimal jolts. The average peak acceleration of the Glyde was 9x less than that of what is currently used.

Reduced Back Strain
As the traditional hand truck connected with each step, the user experienced a huge jump in back muscle activation. Clyde again traveled down steps smoothly with much lower muscle activation. Overall, use of the Glyde Hand Truck required 3x less average muscle strain and 8x less average peak muscle strain than its counterpart.
