Abstract This paper analyzes the modification of the existing motor screw jack by incorporating an electric motor in the screw in order to make load lifting easier. In this modified design, the power screw is rotated through its connecting gear with the pinion gear when electrical power flows through the cigarette lighter receptacle connected to the motor, plugged to the automobile 12 V battery source to generate power for the prime mover (motor), which transmits its rotating speed to the pinion gear meshing with the bigger gear connected to the power screw to be rotated with required speed reduction and increased torque to drive the power screw. The significance and purpose of this work is to modify the existing car jack in order to make the operation easier, safer and more reliable in order to reduce health risks especially back ache problems associated with doing work in a bent or squatting position for a long period of time. The modified car jack is easy to use by pregnant women or whoever had problem with the vehicle tyres along the road. The designed motorised jack will also save time and requires less human energy to operate. The design when adopted will effectively curb the problems associated with Ergonomics- which is a fundamental concept of design process.
