What is the AssiStep?
The AssiStep is an innovative and revolutionary stair climbing aid that allows you to continue mastering stairs in your own home.
With the assistance the product gives, you can walk your stairs safely and with increased support, both while descending and ascending the stairs. The AssiStep is equipped with a secure handle that stays locked when you apply force to it, and provides a physical hindrance that prevents stair falling. The patented and unique braking system allows for easy and safe stair climbing.
The handle is ergonomically shaped, giving you many different gripping opportunities both on the way up and down the stairs. Furthermore, the railing system is completely modular, which means it can be installed and delivered quickly after purchase, even for curved stairs.
How does the AssiStep work?
When ascending the stairs, simply push the light aluminum handle in front of you (like you would with a walker). When you pull the handle downwards, it stays locked so you can support yourself on the handle while climbing a step up.
When descending the stairs, you can slightly lift the outer section of the handle to disengage the locking mechanism. As soon as you apply force to the handle it will automatically go into a locked position, and thereby giving you support while climbing a step down.
The AssiStep secures and supports you when climbing stairs on a daily basis, giving you independence from others, and maintaining activity.
Similar to most accessibility aids that needs to be installed in a private home, the AssiStep price depends on several factors, such as:
- What is the length of your staircase?
- Do you have a straight or curved stair?
- Do you want the handle parked in the staircase, or away from the stairs?
- Can we install directly on the wall, without using a backboard for increased strength?
- Do you need any specific features or options?
How much does an AssiStep cost for a straight stair?
An AssiStep for a straight stair usually cost between £1,900 - £2,800.
Some customers choose options in the £2,500 - £3,000 price range, or take advantage of our short term rental programs.
How much does an AssiStep cost for a curved stair?
AssiStep for curved stairs are usually 30-50% cheaper compared to a curved stair lift, due to its unique and patented modular railing system that allow us to deliver standardized curves in bulk, which ultimately create big cost savings for our customers. The AssiStep does not have to be custom made, even for curved stairs, which makes it possible for us to deliver the AssiStep for around £2,900 - £3,800 for curved stairs.
