An ergonomic study, sponsored by NSID, but independently conducted by the School of Kinesiology at the University of Minnesota, investigated the biomechanics of the emptying action for three different receptacles; the REV 360™ receptacle and two traditional receptacles. The University of Minnesota study revealed that when compared to a traditional 32-gallon waste receptacle, the emptying of trash liners from the REV 360™ trash receptacle was associated with REDUCTIONS in:
