Why to climb on chairs and ladders when you can use a personal scissor lift?

Who is your idea designed for and how does it enable older adults to live their best possible life by preventing falls?

In my family older people usually fall because they climb chairs and ladders to take sth from the high shelves, to change the curtain etc. A personal lift operating like a scissor lift and equipped with handles/rail can help them to do these things in a safer way.

Hi Agnieszka!

Interesting idea. Have you thought about how you could test the feasibility/demand for a scissor lift?
