3-Way Adjustable Load Carrier for Laborers

In 2011, this device created by Indian industrial designer Dinubhai Panchal won the Best Product Design Award in Core77's annual design competition.

Panchal designed it for laborers in his country who must often carry heavy loads in ways that cause injuries. His load carrier is simple, study and cheap. It costs just $7 to make.

The device is adjustable so that a laborer may carry light loads on the head, moderate loads on the shoulders and heavy loads on a wheeled cart. The shoulder points are padded for comfort and the handlebars are textured to make them easier to grip.

In an interview with Core77, Panchal said, "I feel proud to be an Indian who is bringing to light the need (and a design solution) of the underprivileged society, which has been observed and appreciated in many ways."
