Slow-Keeper / Safety Product


For patients and the elderly at hospitals, an elevator might have a few hazardous elements. With insufficient cognitive and physical capabilities, patients and the elderly tend to have more accidents that include jamming, tripping and collisions. Of all accidents, the ones from door closing are the most frequent. For people to use an elevator safely,

has been invented to control the elevator door.
