Thanks for quick reply. It answers my question. I agree that people will like to utilize such environmentally friendly materials and happy to choose their favorable style of the stairs. Hope your team has a good result and better start-up. Good Luck!

Hello Michael,

Fantastic idea, it is great to help older people by using StairWear. Your idea could help many older people, I think it will be work. However, as you and your team knew that the appearance of StairWear is the challenge for outside or inside. Is their possible for the customer to design their appearance of StairWear. It can increase selling if it can work because more and more people like customizing. In addition, the cost of the StairWear is also a challenge although it cheaper than stairlift.Maybe can use the renting business model to reduce the customers’ cost. If want to do this, it should build the StairWear into small pieces that could suitable for every stair and could be assembled like LEGO. That could help more people. Is this possible?
