Oddbjørn has the AssiStep stair helper installed after he got diagnosed with COPD. After many years working as a welder, Oddbjørn has COPD. This affects his concentration, and causes dizziness and breathing difficulties. Things got so bad he could no longer walk the stairs to the basement.
Oddbjørn, 68, is married with 4 children. In 1974, they moved to Frosta. For many years, he commuted between there and Trondheim, where he worked as a welder.
  • "Both commuting and welding took their piece of my life.”

As a result of his work he developed COPD, a chronic illness of the lungs causing poor airflow. To Oddbjørn, it affects his concentration and causes dizziness and breathing difficulties.

  • “Climbing stairs, that was awful. The basement stairs, I had no chance in the end. Walking was no good.”
  • “But today, life is completely different. I enter the basement several times each day. I have no problem doing it.”
  • “It really, really helps having the AssiStep, because you no longer feel that dread to start walking, you just do it.”
  • “And the stair helper AssiStep I recommend to most people I come across who might need it.”
“The stair helper AssiStep really saved me, I have to say!”
