Wheelchair ramps for stairs – it was that they could save a slope with an escalator to cover the intermediate slopes that cannot be save by a lift or a mechanical ramp. The ladder is designed to be used wherever you want to save a difference. Such as in department stores, commercial areas and even outdoors, in a park or in the city. The main beneficiaries would be people in wheelchairs. Being able to add to this group people with reduce mobility that carry a baby stroller. The shopping cart or any object or cargo that makes climbing or climbing on escalators difficult.
It is similar to the current one, but with very outstanding innovations. When a user with reduced mobility who moves in a wheelchair needs to use the ladder. You can have, after pressing a button, three of the steps move vertically. And become a flat platform that you can access with your chair wheel. This wheelchair ramps for stairs has a flange that will act as a safety barrier. So that the wheelchair cannot fall backwards. And a series of detectors that ensures a perfect positioning of the same before the ladder moves again.

After the user has settle safely on the platform the ladder will be put into operation until reaching the end of the journey. When leaving the installation, the platform will be convert into three separate steps to continue to operate. And offering the service of any conventional ladder. It is an important element, since the ladder has incorporate a system of autonomous batteries . It would provide energy in the event of a supply cut and thus. If the ladder was giving the service to a person with reduced mobility, It could reach the end of the journey.
In this sense, the author of the project calculates that, regarding the current wheelchair ramps for stairs, it obtains around 30% of energy saving, installation costs and material. The treadmill that moves between the highest and the lowest level. Also saving the slope, is the same for both up and down. That is to say, it works following a closed circuit that resembles the conveyors of baggage of the airports but in slope. In the current stairs, one installation is use to raise and one to lower. Which implies the need to install two systems of traction when with its design one is need. The main technical difficulty I had to deal with was finding the way to turn the steps at the end of the slopes. But I have finally succeed.
