Positech's ReactionArm absorbs shock, torsional forces, and impact force from power tools; therefore reducing carpal tunnel injury and cumulative trauma disorders.

Absorbs Shock

Decreases Injury

Cumulative trauma injuries cost the U.S. economy billions each year. The ReactionArm reduces injuries to workers' wrists, arms and upper bodies by absorbing the shock of the attached power tool. A power tool mounted on a ReactionArm can be easily moved and positioned throughout the work cell. A variety of styles, capacities and mounting options provide versatility.
