Helping Handy Escalator Concept by Kim Mi Yeon, Kang Seong a, Kim Beom Jun & Kim Jun Sang is a gripping device that slides up and down a stair rail. Magnets place it in tension on the rail, so it will move steadily when pushed and hold its position when released. Helping Handy Escalator provides a hardware ‘helping hand’ to those inside need of assistance using stairs. Many elderly people (in addition to others whose mobility is compromised) need help when climbing and also descending stairs.
