An ergonomic cart is described that provides protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD) events. The cart enables a user to transport relatively heavy equipment and includes mechanisms to easily raise or lower equipment. The cart includes moveable and fixed shelves, columns, and ESD swivel casters. Exposed corners of the shelves of the cart are protected by a rubber bumper. Extension and retraction of the columns and the top shelf is performed by two linear actuators powered by a battery. An integrated sensor is provided that allows for an immediate stop to motion of the columns upon detection of resistance.
