Many people are restricted in their mobility and need mobility aids to help them stay in their own home for as long as possible. That is why walking aids such as rollators or walkers are particularly useful for people with limited walking functions, so that they can continue to move independently on straight surfaces.
The mechanical stair aid for elderly AssiStep is now available to help overcome stairs safely and independently.

What exactly is the stair aid for elderly?
AssiStep is the revolutionary new development in the area of accessibility and mobility aids for people with restricted walking functions. The stair aid for elderly supports you and safeguards you when climbing stairs so that you can stay active and keep your independence.
The mechanical stair aid for elderly AssiStep consists of a handrail and a handle. The handle is attached to the handrail and moved along the handrail and rail when in use. The rail system is mounted on the wall along the stairs.
It has a patented locking mechanism that prevents you from sliding or falling on the stairs. As soon as you apply pressure to the handle, it locks and provides the necessary support and safety.
AssiStep is made from high-quality and sustainable materials such as stainless steel and anodized aluminum and takes up very little space, as it only protrudes 18 cm from the wall when folded in.
How does the stair aid for elderly work?
When going up the stairs, hold on to the lower part of the handle.
- Move the handle an arm's length forwards and upwards. Your arms should be fully extended.
- Now take a step up the stairs.
- Repeat this for each step.
When you go down the stairs, hold onto the upper part of the handle.
- Lift the outer edge of the handle slightly.
- With the handle raised, push the handle a full arm away from you.
- After you have put down the handle and it is locked, you can take a step down.
- Repeat this for each step.
The simple use is completely mechanical and does not require the help of an accompanying person.
"We have made it our duty to make people more independent and safer in everyday life and to enable them to maintain and promote their walking function in their own homes"

What does the stair aid for elderly cost?
The price of the mechanical stair aid for elderly depends on several factors. AssiStep does not have to be individually adapted to your stairs.
The price is influenced, for example, by the course of the stairs, the conditions on site such as wall material or depth differences in the wall, the number of curves, the length of the rail system required and the desired extra equipment.

An AssiStep for a straight stair usually cost between £1,900 - £2,800.

How much does an AssiStep cost for a curved stair?
