Companion / handle

Companion
Companion

The Companion is designed to assist senior citizens who have trouble going up and down stairways. By unsing a bird-shaped handle that slides up and down the banisters, the elderly can climb steep stairs with more ease. Just like a granddaughter who helps a grandmother on the stairs, this product will serve as a trustworthy companion for elderly people.
