Weird but works

At least according to Popular Mechanics:


It sounds like a scam — a harness that attaches to your wrists and “makes loads feel up to 50 percent lighter.” We can’t vouch for that number, but Handi-Straps ($60) definitely work. When we tried carrying boxes, buckets and even a co-worker, the straps connected to our wrists went taut before our arms could fully extend, distributing the load throughout the harness. The optional hooks offer a better grip for handles. The device is being tested by New York City’s fire department to help transport loaded gurneys.
