Evacuating with Steady Steps / stairs

Evacuating with Steady Steps

Evacuation For The Elderly:
When an emergency takes place, the elder living in the Home for the Aged, would also need to be evacuated through the escape stairs. However due to the aging of their leg muscles, walking up and down the stairs is really a hard time to them.

”Evacuating with Steady Steps” improves the shape of the handrail and creates one more route, allowing the elder to press the handrail vertically to support their own body weight, dispersing the pressure posed onto the legs. This could help the elder be evacuated in a speedier manner.
