The Ramper Innovations Mission – To Prevent as Many Ramp Agent Injuries as Possible!
I aim to change the archaic way that aircraft are loaded and unloaded and establish TISABAS with every airline in every commercial airport in the world.
My 38 years of experience in the industry and numerous studies clearly show that change is needed.
Ramp agents spend their working hours loading and unloading cargo and baggage weighing from 30-100 lbs. These items need to be moved in a space about 25 feet long and less than 4 feet high. In most cases this involves either throwing or sliding objects, which causes numerous problems for ramp agents, airlines, and their customers. The current system provides significant risk of bodily injuries as well as damage to aircraft and cargo. Sliding cargo creates friction that slows down the process. The alternative of throwing objects can result in damage to aircraft and cargo. In addition, ramp agents can easily injure their backs by sliding or throwing cargo. The physical demands of the job alone cause inefficiencies in operations that stress ramp agents and cost airlines money.

The Ramper Advantage
TISABAS is a compact motorized folding conveyor system that goes into the aircraft belly and mechanically moves baggage and cargo, eliminating the need to throw heavy baggage, mail and cargo the length of the aircraft belly.
