|| Ergonomics at
Fiskars® is a long-standing tradition. For years Fiskars
has combined the science of ergonomics with the art of
industrial design. The need for ergonomic designing is
continuous. Both at home and at their jobs, people work
- backs bent - their well-being threatened by impending
back problems. When cutting, the weight of the tool and
the poor working position of the hand and fingers cause
static tension, resulting in muscle strain and chaffing
of the fingers. Ergonomics is an important consideration
in the pragmatic approach that Olavi Lindén, chief
designer at Fiskars Consumer Oy, has to designing.
FISKARS® Garden Tools are ideal for a range
of garden applications including planting, cultivating, weeding
and transplanting, and they can be used both indoors and out.
The PowerGear® Advantage tool's unique gear
design maximizes leverage to reduce cutting effort, and the
rotating handle minimizes strain and fatigue, especially during
extended use. Power-Lever® technology
increases cutting power by 35%. The PowerGrip®
is a technical ergonomic term to describe the ideal size and
shape. Users can safely control the tool without the need
to squeeze the grip tightly. Patented, ergonomic handle reduces
strain, adds comfort, and protects your hand.
The Softouch® Advantage Fiskars
is proud to carry the award-winning Softouch® family.
Each scissors has oversized, cushion-grip handles and an easy-action
spring that opens the blades after each cut, greatly reducing
fatigue. These premium scissors also feature an adjustable
screw, which allows the blade tension to be modified. A convenient
lock keeps the blades closed tight for safe storage. You will
never tire of cutting with Softouch® scissors!
