Handrail Light / Lighting concept for interior

Handrail Light
Handrail Light

According to the statistics on the causes of death in recent years, falls are the second highest cause of death from accidents for people over 65 years old. The Handrail Light uses wooden handrails to give a gentle touch and remove the obstacles of elderly people’s muscle weakness. The ball-shaped bulb can follow the hands on the handrails to illuminate the ground in front of them. It can prevent the elderly from being stumbled by ground objects or undulating ground. The bulb is equipped with a magnetic adsorption, which can absorb the metal embedded in the side of the armrest to prevent the ball bulb from rolling quickly.
