U Rest is a railing system that has been redesigned to extend and, together with the corner of the stairwell, to build up a seating space for the elderly and the disabled with difficulties walking on the stairs to have an instant area to rest and lean on. millions of aged people all around the world that are living in poor housing condition without a lift and without structural capability or enough budget for a lift, from the historical or developing areas of megacities, especially in countries of Asia, Africa and South America, are still suffering mentally and physically from walking on stairs. But all they need is just a place to rest.
