Bending down more than a hundred times a day to wring out a mop is back-breaking work for caretakers around the world. But if Jeremy Wang, Shuyi Wu, Ryan Williams and Noah Yang (all EngSci 1T7 + PEY) have their way, mopping is about to get a whole lot easier.
The third-year Engineering Science students won second prize in the 2016 Minerva Canada James Ham Safe Design Awards competition for designing a deceptively simple device called PowerWring that could save thousands of workers from back strains and sprains.
EngSci alumni from honoured years ending in 1 or 6 can meet the PowerWring team at the EngSci Spring Reunion Lunch! To register, visit the Spring Reunion website.
