Peder was born with cerebral palsy, and has always been dependent on assistance in order to climb the stairs. With the stair helper AssiStep he managed to climb the stairs independently already on his first attempt.
Home adaptation for children with disabilities

Like most children with cerebral palsy, Peder has issues with gross motor impairment. This makes it difficult for him to crawl, walk, sit and run. Although he can accomplish much on his own, he was never able to climb the stairs by himself. Yet when his family learned about the AssiStep, there was hope for him to do just that.

They made inquiries to have the stair helper installed in their home.

Not only did acquiring the stair helper AssiStep enable Peder, to his great joy, to climb the stairs by himself, it also improved his functioning in other areas. According to his mother, both his core musculature and body posture have improved as a result of his using the stair helper AssiStep stair helper at home.

“After Peder got the stair helper AssiStep, we have noticed a big difference when he climbs regular stairs. He has more strength in his core musculature, and his bodily posture has improved greatly”

What is cerebral palsy?

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the general term for a group of conditions involving impaired motor function, and is caused by abnormal development or damage to the developing brain between the fetal stage and early childhood. An important diagnostic criterion is the brain damage not worsening, but remaining static(not progressing). What results from the diagnosis, depends on the size and locality of the damage. Approximately two to three of every thousand children are born with or subsequently develop cerebral palsy.
