As is known to us all, kids, pregnant women, the old, and people with disabilities are the disadvantaged groups that we need to take care of. The normal stair span is not suitable for them because of their physical conditions. And "auxiliary stair" is based on the traditional stairs but change its steps’numbers and height greatly. The improved design is made up of two different steps combination and steps’ numbers in each side are different. The number of steps near to stair handrails is twice as the other side’s. Eventually it reduces the height of step as well as the risk of the stairs and it is beneficial to the vulnerable people.
