  1. I recall these type of vests being presented at the VINCI Innovation Awards in Paris in 2015. They are not just for lifting heavy loads.
    VINCI Construction in France were using them for tasks where the operative had to sustain long periods of operating tools above one’s head, such as sanding a ceiling when undertaking renovation works. They received excellent feedback from the users regarding reduction of musculoskeletal issues and general fatigue.
    Further research and development of these vests is to be commended.
