The StairSteady was invented by Ruth Amos when she was just 16 years old (pictured!) to help those with limited mobility walk up and down stairs easier. The StairSteady can either replace or supplement your existing handrail on your stairs. It consists of a fold out metal bar that provides stability while climbing or descending the stairs for those with limited mobility. The bar allows you to hold on with both hands which is a great advantage for those with less strength on one side and only one banister. The StairSteady can be configured to fit winding stairs with a dogleg or multiple units can be used for more complex staircases.
