U60 / micro-lift

My work for the project \"Medical equipment for the living space of seniors\" centered about the idea of overcoming one to three staircase steps between two rooms. U60, a micro-elevator, helps all seniors who are on one hand still able to walk but on the other hand unable to climb stairs. U60 brings you back your required freedom to your own house. The backs of attendants and dependents will be relieved and carrying or supporting of seniors will become a thing of the past.
Different modules, that can easily be attached to existing staircases, hide electronical cylinders that generate a constant and soft movement.
