Runner Up

We are designers and engineers working to reduce falls among the elderly

Our Business Outline

Stairs can cause elderly users to fall, prevent them from going upstairs in their home, and can often force the elderly occupants to move out. This is especially true in older homes with steep stairs, small steps, and for steps that visually ‘blend into each other’.



StairWear offers a suite of custom-fit accessories that fit over existing stairs or outdoor steps and provide:

  • more space on each step
  • better grip
  • improved visibility

Stairwear is supported by a website where users can log in and request a local professional to come and measure their stairs/outdoor steps, they can customise their order and have it delivered directly to their home.

StairWear products are designed through 3D printers and CNC cutters so that the product can be produced on-demand.
