The Swivel on Swivel Caster is the latest addition to the Caster Concepts line of ergonomic products designed to reduce the risk of workplace injuries, while increasing productivity and efficiency.
 
The Swivel on Swivel Caster (SoS) reduces the amount of force needed to turn and maneuver a cart, and to start rolling a cart when all the wheels are not parallel.
 
Caster Concepts’ field tests determined that the SoS Caster reduces operator push force by almost 40 per cent compared to conventional swivel section rigs. By reducing the push force, the caster will help reduce the risk of injuries from over-exertion due to pushing and pulling. Over-exertion remains the leading cause of workplace injuries in the United States, costing businesses more than $15 billion.
