Instant Wheelchair Ramps
The Convertible Staircase Makes Even the Steepest of Steps Handicapable

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Dec 3, 12

The Convertible Staircase is a conceptual design that needs to be made a reality as soon as possible. Created by Chan Wen Jie, the Convertible Staircase is meant to make stairs instantly accessible to those in wheelchairs. The stairs lie flat on top of normal stairs and can instantly be flattened into a ramp.

The Convertible Staircase’s ability to instantly become a wheelchair ramp is nice, but the design also offers benefits to those who have lost the use of their legs. Jie’s creation makes it easier for the elderly and the injured to climb stairs by adding grip to each step. With the average lifespan in the U.S. increasing seemingly ever year, it’s more than likely that the demand for products such as the Convertible Staircase will skyrocket.
