AssiStep - Stair Climbing Aid For Elderly
Sooner or later, many seniors face difficulties with walking and climbing stairs and are restricted in their mobility. They are then dependent on aids to stay in their own home for as long as possible and to be independent of the help of others. This is why certain walking aids, such as walkers or rollators, are particularly helpful for people with reduced mobility so that they can continue to move independently on flat surfaces.
When it comes to overcoming stairs in your home, the mechanical stair climbing aid for elderly AssiStep is now available.

What exactly is the stair climbing aid for elderly?
AssiStep is the innovative new development in the field of mobility aids and accessibility for people with reduced walking function. The stair climbing aid for elderly supports and secures when climbing stairs in order to remain active and remain independent.
The stair climbing aid for elderly consists of an ergonomically shaped handle and a handrail. The handle is attached to the handrail and is moved along the rail.
The patented locking mechanism prevents you from sliding or falling on the stairs, because as soon as you apply pressure to the handle, it locks immediately and thus offers the necessary support and safety.
The stair climbing aid for elderly is made of high quality materials such as stainless steel and anodized aluminum and takes up minimal space, because when folded the system only needs 18 cm.
How does the stair climbing aid for elderly work?
When going down the stairs, hold onto the top of the handle.
- Then lift the outer edge of the handle slightly to release it from the latch.
- While the handle is raised, push the handle a full arm length away from you to have enough room to run.
- After you have removed the handle and it has snapped in again, you can take a step down.
- Repeat this for each step.
When going up the stairs you should 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.
The simple use is completely mechanical and without an accompanying person.
Who can use the stair climbing aid for elderly?
