Cleanliness is next to godliness. Maintaining a clean environment is good for people health and wellbeing. Cleaning is accomplished by manual effort in most developing countries. Manual sweeping is laborious, time consuming, physically demanding, leads to fatigue and musculoskeletal disorders. Sweeping devices are costly and cannot be afforded by common man. It is proposed to develop a low cost manually operated sweeping device, with manual drive to brush, debris collecting tray and adjustable handle. Motive of the project is to develop an easy to use product to reduce fatigue during sweeping, improve efficiency, ergonomic design, low cost and leaves floor free of debris. This sweeper can be used by most people from school going kids to elders to sweep their surrounding with less strain.
