Abstract

Fall Control System for Stairways is designed to reduce the dangers of falling from stairs. It does so by constantly sensing for pressure points and weight distribution on the stair area. Should it discover that a person on the stairs starts falling down, it momentarily fully or partially retracts the stairs, forming the stairway into a slide, making the descent down much safer.
