About

Device assisting patients suffering with osteoarthritis

Using stairs is painful, difficult, and dangerous for osteoarthritis sufferers

Flight is an adjustable handle which can be attached to any stair rail to assist users, without the need for expensive or major alterations. Its unique internal mechanism locks as users move from one step to the next, easily disengaging to slide along the rails to the next step. The design is light-weight and collapsible allowing it to be easily transportable.
