Stairs problems faced by elderly

Identify problem: The hand-rail is too large to grab Possible solutions: - StairSteady to help those with walking difficulties climb the stairs. A metal bar attached to a metal stair rail. It allows those with limited mobility to use the stairs without worrying that they will fall. Those using the StairSteady push the bar along the rail to help them balance when they want go up and down the stairs. The bar uses friction to lock itself in place so users can pull themselves up to the next step. It will lock in place if the user falls or stumbles. When not in use, the handle can be pushed flat against the wall.

  2. Hi,
    How could one get the sample or buy the sample (if it's nit too expensive) for contribution to the poor elderly in one's country?
