267. Bright Idea: Handi-Straps April 2, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Product.

This adjustable Handi-Strap Lifting System distributes weight to the upper back and shoulders, reducing the strain on hands, fingers, and wrists. It is also being tested for rescue purposes with EMS, military, fire and police departments. These photos demonstrate the Handi-Straps’ effectiveness (unless, of course, that mustachioed dude is actually Magnus Ver Magnusson, World’s Strongest Man, and his sister). Relatively cheap at $60; buy it HERE (via Popularmechanics.com).

Here are some inspirational words from the inventor himself, Ron (the guy in the photo):

Hello Spark Bug,
I’m Ron, the inventor of Handi-Straps which you kindly put on your site. Keep promoting ideas! Ideas turn into intellectual property which turn into corporations which are the pride of this country and make us the leaders that we are! Very important to promote and appreciate ideas!

If there is one tip I can give it is to PURSUE YOUR IDEAS TIL IT BURNS..til it ends in ashes and can’t be done. Work on your idea 7DAYS A WEEK even if it’s just 10 minutes on a Sunday thinking about it. EVERYDAY! Dreams and ideas have a tendency to slip on the floor and end up under the bed somewhere if you slack even one day. One day turns into two… Even if your idea is wrong, persitence will right it or lead to an even better idea…if you push it til’ it burns. Have a great day…and remember..if it wasn’t for ideas..we’d still be cavemen!
