The handles of today’s shopping carts also need to be more versatile. Comfortable horn-like handles, for instance, are increasingly popular. The ergonomic design helps in transferring the steering thrust and force from pushing. Many of these comfortable handles also feature an antistatic device that comes standard and protects customers from annoying electric shock. Depending on needs, there are many additional options such as magnifiers, cup holders or grocery list holders available today. Hygiene also plays an essential role; after all, the shopping carts are handled by many customers throughout the day. Thanks to specific plastic components, there are now models available with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to avoid the transfer of germs and bacteria.
