Human Hoist on Invention USA
Season 2 on the History Channel
Now here is an invention that could only come from the USA. Kevin Ferguson and Eric Brittingham came on Invention USA with The Human Hoist, the mechanics choice of tools in the 21st century. It's basically a creeper for getting under a vehicle on steroids. With the Human Hoist you can easily go from a sitting position all the way to 4" laying on the ground within seconds and then right back up again. I must say I actually started laughing out load when I first seen it demonstrated. Not because of what you might be thinking but because it was just a cool looking invention that has instant appeal to anyone that uses a mechanics creeper for a living. This is a major time saver for any mechanic that would speed up production and eliminate the need for a second mechanic handing you tools. The hoist is powered by a 18 volt rechargeable battery with built in hydraulics and spring torsion for full automation and adjustments at any level. This thing looks like a lot of fun whether you are working on a vehicle or not.

Unfortunately the Human Hoist does not have much of a web site that offers much more information on their invention. Once again, there is no way to order (or even pre-order) a Human Hoist if you are interested in how much they even cost. By the looks of it, probably not very cheap, but it's only my guess it will be in the mid 4 figure range. Hopefully they will be selling these in the near future as it's sure to be a big success when they do.
The site says they are still looking for active investors in the Human Hoist but they are in talks with Dr. Power who is doing market surveys at this time. They also state there is not a deal with Dr. Power as of yet, so this may prove to be a good investment if you act fast.
There is no doubt that mechanics will see many added benefit's with a new tool like this, the only question is "How Much Does the Human Hoist Cost"? and when can I buy one?
