J-escalator / Escalator


The CPSC (US Consumer Product Safety Commission) estimates that there were 7,300 hospital emergency room-treated injuries from escalator in 1994. 75 percent of these injuries were due to falls, another 20 percent occurred when hands, feet or shoes were trapped in escalator.
The height of traditional escalator is not effective to keep balance for children.
Children can not only hold parents’ hand, but also hold J-ESCALATOR(handrail) to keep their balance.
