I have designed two products. An ergonomic equipment belt that is better adapted to the body and an equipment- and bulletproof vest to be worn on top of the jacket as an outer garment.
The belt is wider than the previous that envelops the hips, it is shaped for the body and distributes the pressure. The vest is a combined protection and equipment vest.
To have the opportunity to place some of the tools on the upper body makes you have less stuff around your hips, which in turn makes it fit better in the car and allows you to use the car´s safety belt properly.
This also gives the individual the opportunity to choose how they want to carry their tools in their work.
There are many things that need improvement in the police officers’ workplace, things that contribute to musculoskeletal disorders. My results can be implemented today and is a first step in a change of police equipment and the work environment.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
