PHOENIX - July 7, 2016 - PRLog -- TheEZGrip Dot Com LLC introduces TheEZGrip™ silkscreen squeegee, the first ergonomic squeegee that has two upright handle grips. The two upright handles transfer the workload from the hands and wrists to the larger muscle groups in the upper body, which in many cases, reducing the stress and pain experienced by commercial screen printers.
This problem, common amongst printers, is a result of the teardrop shape that forms the topside of the conventional screen squeegee. The grip requires the operator to place both mid-palms face down, fitting snugly against the top of the narrow squeegee. In doing so, pinching the nerves, ligaments, tendons and other tissues that pass through the palms and wrists, including the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. The print stroke is highly repetitive and often causes operator pain and injury.
As a solution, some new products have made modifications to the original teardrop shape, but not until TheEZGrip™ patent pending design has a new technology been so influential in changing an ancient-old style and method of printing.
TheEZGrip™ original two handle system changes the basic approach by which the body interacts with the squeegee holder. The ergonomically positioned vertical handle grips help the hands and adjoining wrists in forming a straight skeletal alignment, thereby avoiding compression at the wrist. The assigned posture employs mostly the larger muscle groups in the upper arms, chest and shoulders to do the work, rather than smaller muscles in the hands and wrists, which are substantially used to operate the conventional squeegee.
Specifically, the ergonomic handles help in preventing musculoskeletal problems including discomfort, fatigue, pain and other distressing conditions, as well as the potential development of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The ergonomic benefits also translate into faster production. Ron Contreras of Graphic Silk Screen, Cottonwood AZ, has been in the printing business for 25 years and since using TheEZGrip™ has seen an increase in production. "There is no doubt, my printers and I work easier, faster and with less fatigue. As a result, we get more done with fewer mistakes."
TheEZGrip™ silkscreen squeegee is made in the USA, Phoenix, AZ. TheEZGrip™ is constructed in one-piece using shock and chemical resistant plastic and is an affordable $24.98, blade not included. The holder weights 5.5 oz. and measures 13" wide. An instructional video is available at - http://www.theezgrip.com
