Whether it’s their first trip out in the real world, your daily trip to the park, visits to grandma’s house, or out to the market, keep a tight grip on them. They’re safest in your arms, but when they can’t be … make sure you have the most secure helping hand to hold them. Carriers can be tough on the arms — tough enough to dislocate the shoulders of even the most strapping young parents. Just ask our LugBug™ creator, a first-time dad.
He set out to build a sturdy, reliable and easy-to-use handle for parents to prevent strain-related injuries. The result: a comfortable attachment for any baby carrier that eases tension on the wrist, forearm and shoulder. Hold them tight. Hold them comfortably.
North Carolina State University’s Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering studied the effect of baby carrier handle strain on the body. According to the study, a handle that promoted a neutral wrist posture “would increase grip stability and decrease lifting effort.” A survey discussed in the study said that nearly half of parents experienced shoulder, back or neck pain. LugBug™ was created to ease these pains.
