Why is Exthand Different?
What if we told you that 51.8% of hairdressers suffer from a muscular skeletal disorder within 10 years (ouch)! Most of the hairdressers we know didn’t go to cosmetology school just to find another, less physically taxing, profession a decade later. Those hairdressers also use Exthand Shears to protect their bodies, reducing strain on their upper body from day-to-day haircutting positions.
Stop the Self Abuse
Hairdressers are prone to career-ending pain in more areas than just the wrist and thumb, which has been the traditional focus on ergonomic shears. Exthand has taken a fresh perspective when it comes to shear design that will truly change the way you feel from the waist up. Just look at the difference in this laboratory assessment completed during the design and engineering process for Exthand.
In the Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA), hairdressing scores a 6.5 out of 7 (that’s really, really bad). Using Exthand Shears reduces this score by 50% to only 3.5 out of 7.
