About the Edition

Climbing stairs is a challenging activity for many frail older adults. A double handrail system was developed to make stair ascent safer and less effortful for such individuals. The effort of stair ascent using the double handrail system was investigated using healthy subjects given the simulated disabilities of lower extremity weakness and grip strength loss commonly found in frail older adults. The apparatus consisted of instrumented stairs and handrails, and a motion capture system. Ten healthy younger subjects wore simulation devices and climbed the stairs under a variety of conditions. Joint torques, generated forces and perceived exertion results show promise for the rails in minimizing effort. The device simulating lower extremity weakness was effective its simulation and the device simulating grip strength loss showed potential as a hobbling device.
