Title: Low friction apparatus (LFA)

Abstract: An apparatus and method for creating and utilizing a low friction structure is provided. The low friction apparatus (LFA) of the present embodiments allow for moving a load across a work surface with minimal effort. The LFA provides for easier movement over a transport surface area, wherein the impact of a large bearing area is minimized using minimal friction. The LFA is further adapted to greatly reduce the frictional force between a load and a work surface thereby allowing low surface stress on a work surface combined with ease of movement. In addition, the LFA provides low friction and subsequent ease of motion even while turning or moving sideways since its characteristics are non directional.
