One of the most common reasons for absence from work in the cleaning industry is pain in the back and neck area*. The cause of this: wrong posture, frequent stooping as well as the lifting and carrying of heavy objects, such as water buckets. UNGER counteracts these health problems with ergonomic cleaning tools - such as the erGO! S-telescopic handle. It received the AGR seal of approval after intensive testing by doctors and therapists.

An interdisciplinary panel of doctors, therapists and occupational health care experts tested the erGO! S-telescopic handle in a theoretical and practical testing procedure. The result: When compared with the competition, it performed excellently and was the only product in the floor cleaning category to receive the seal of approval of the Aktion Gesunde Rücken e.V. (Healthy back campaign)(AGR).

The S-shape of the pole as well as the rotatable grips allow the user to work physiologically in an intuitive way and to reduce the effort involved. Therefore, the S movement required for effective cleaning can be achieved with minimum stress on the shoulders, arms and wrists. This is not the case with comparable competitor products.
Due to the telescopic nature of the erGO! S-telescopic handle, it can be adapted to the individual size of the user. This makes work easier and protects the back.
As a removable tank for detergent is integrated into the erGO! S-telescopic handle, no additional bucket is needed, which eliminates the need for constant stooping and lifting and carrying heavy loads. The detergent is conveniently applied by means of the integrated dosing lever of the Pulse jet system.
