PersonaGrip has had the privilige of working with some of America's TOP Industrial Athletes.
When watching this video, keep in mind that he's literally wired with a mic (pre-wireless mic era) as he searches for words to describe his experinece with his new ergonomic custom-moldable handgrips.
...amazing to watch his industrial choreography in action.
Profit from Your Investment in Your Workers with PersonaGrip Ergonomics:
Now more than ever, with productivity at stake and costs measured by fractions of a cent, we would be doing your company and workers a disservice if Custom-Moldable Ergonomic Hangrip Technology was evaluated based on the design by an inexperienced -- albeit well-intentioned -- first-time user.
No one wins in this scenario.
This would be like giving them paint in the morning, and then
expecting to see a Picasso when you return from lunch.

...NOBODY can be an expert in their first attempt at anything.
Today's Manufacturing Dilemma:
Tool Manufacturers are FORCED BY LAW --> Strict Liability <-- to forsee every possible and misuse of a tool, so they design handgrips accordingly....generic.
Furthermore, to maximize profit, they must design the handgrip to the 95th percentile; that is, 95% of the workers who hold the grip won't find it objectionable.
This reduces the human/machine interface to a smooth, generic surface...without any leveraging benefits whatsoever.
Enter PersonaGrip's Ergonomic Composites...
PersonaGrip has the benefit of observing workers interfacing with their tools in the work enviroment, and can optimize the human/machine surface ergonomically to suit the task.
PersonaGrip Ergonomics changes the rules in this regard, and estahblishes The New Paradigm.
If it's a dedicated-tool work environment, the moldable ergonomic handgrip can be further optimized to the worker, as well.
So, this means shared toolgrips are designed differently...just like we've done with hundreds of steering wheel grips for endurance races where there's more than one driver.
On November 22nd, 1994, PersonaGrip was EMG tested at NIOSH using standard university test procedures to determine how much energy is expended when trying to control an object.
A standard handgrip was used on a Lido Work Simulator for baseline data in three modes: sliding, twisting, and compression.
The standard grip was then removed, and a mildly molded PersonaGrip ergonomic handgrip was installed.
The results showed that 54.3% less effort was expended when trying to control an object that was trying to slide through the test subject's hand; and, when the object tried to twist out of the subject's hands, the reduction was 43.5%.
Compression tests did not reveal any significant energy savings; however, the test subject noted that it felt significantly more comfortable.
A Quarter Century of Ergonomic Handgrip Design Experience...
With over a quarter century of ergonomic handgrip design experience behind Ed Dellis, PersonaGrip's key man can visit your facility and train your workers -- today's Industrial Athletes -- how to develop tool grips that:
Reduce Tooling Costs
Improve Employee Morale
Automotive Industries magazine covered the industrial ergonomic benefits in a story called "The Tool Grip That Won The Indy 500"
Industrial Athletes at GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Harley Davidson, Kenworth, and many, many more have learned the benefits of Custom-Moldable Ergonomic Handgrip Technology.
...when it's done correctly.
Along the way, Dellis explored myriad applications for his ergonomic handgrip technology in professional sports.
With the help of Fabian Calcellera and Connie Young of the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team, PersonaGrip won Gold at the Beijing Olympics.
The Racquetball World Championship came to PersonaGrip via Mike Ray.
Emerson Fittipaldi, Arie Luyendyk, and Jacques Villeneuve all took PersonaGrip to the Winner's Circle at the world-famous Indy 500.
Numerous other victories can be found in the history books in Formula One, (cars and boats) NASCAR, Unlimited Hydroplanes, Trans-Am, ALMS, and many other racing venues.
