Jannie lives in a three storey house, yet she cannot climb stairs any longer. At the end of last year, Jannie became the first user of Vertical Walking, a new system, developed in Eindhoven, which allows her to move between floors, by herself. The system is independent of electricity, while using only a fraction of the effort compared to climbing stairs.
Vertical Walking is a development by Rombout Frieling lab in an attempt to find new solutions for the millions of Europeans for whom staircases will become major bottlenecks in everyday life. Existing solutions such as (stair)lifts disable the human body completely. Instead, we look at harmonious solutions that make most of what people can still do. Providing health and agility, but moreover a sense of satisfaction and pleasure.
Are you curious what Jannie’s experiences are? Do you want to see Vertical Walking with your own eyes?
