Life Rail / stair handrail

Life Rail
Life Rail

When using conventional stair handrails to support the body, we need to use hand grip strength and palm friction, this creates extreme load for bodies. Conventional stair handrails for the disable and elderly users not only are uncomfortable but also create potential risk of falling.
LIFE RAIL is designed with a wave shape rail. It naturally contains multiple vertical and horizontal support points which offer arm support to the body. It is easier to grip and provides stronger support when comparing to the ordinary.
LIFE RAIL is able to protect and support live like it is named.
