Rural women walk many tens of miles with heavy load on their head which causes stress, discomfort and eventually head and neck injuries.
The product is an ergonomically designed device fixed on top of the head, with two extended supporting rods from the sides of the device. The device transfers the weight carried on the head to the shoulders, which is better positioned to carry weight.
It helps women to take rest while carrying load on their head by shifting the load to shoulder and vice versa.
