Our story

NTNU Main building
The AssiStep is developed by some of Norway's leading engineers, industrial designers and health professionals.
Living in our own home throughout life is what most of us want. Here at Assitech, we develop new and innovative solutions to enable this.

What most of us take for granted, can give others a great sense of accomplishment

When we installed the AssiStep in the home of six-year-old Peder in the summer of 2017, many had doubts. Peder had never walked the stairs alone, without the support of an adult. Seeing him take his first test walk with the AssiStep - all by himself - is the greatest source of inspiration we can get, in our aim to make the AssiStep available for all who need it.

To us, it’s about mastery and quality of life. Being able to move freely, safely and actively in your own home is what we’re passionate about. Assistive technology is, as far as it can, supposed to enable you to maintain your functioning - and not remove important sources of daily activity.

We began our work developing the AssiStep as students at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) back in 2012. Our aim was to make a completely new and revolutionary walking aid to enable more people to live at home for as long as they wish.

The result was the award winning AssiStep stair aid.

After a comprehensive development process in cooperation with users and therapists, the AssiStep was tested and certified by the widely recognized German inspection and certification group TÜV in 2015 - and the AssiStep was market ready.

Since launching, we’ve travelled Norway far and wide to show off how the AssiStep can help people. We’ve visited countless rehabilitation centres, municipalities, therapists and private people who enjoy the benefits of the AssiStep every day. This has given us a lot of attention and recognition, like when crown prince Haakon and crown princess Mette-Marit were themselves able to try the AssiStep, with great enthusiasm.

Since then, many things have happened. The company still resides in the heart of Trondheim, Norway, doing product development and production under one roof at our new facilities in Fossegrenda. The AssiStep is now available in many European countries, as well as in South America and Japan, and we're expanding quickly through our network of partners and distributors.

We believe there is more to be done to help people live more independently in their daily lives. After all, most people want to do as much as they can for themselves, without relying on others for help. The AssiStep is our contribution to a make a safer, more active society for those who struggle with the stairs.
