BrailleRail / handrail

BrailleRail

For blind persons, taking the stairs is an uncomfortable matter. They need to remember the amount of the floors which they have taken, because they can't see the floor marking. Once they forget the number, they will get into trouble. In darkness, blind persons will get into a panic when they finish a flight of stairs and set feet on terrace suddenly. BrailleRail resolves these problems. Braille figure on the end of rail will inform blind persons the floor number, and meanwhile remind them that they will finish a flight of stairs
