Epsom, UK – May 6, 2015 – Why does this type of fall still happen? If kids had a hand rail of the right size and height they would be able to save themselves just like adults do. Research shows that if people lose their balance on the stairs, the accuracy and speed of arm movements are very high. No study has shown someone missing the hand rail completely when they lose their balance, and initial contact with the hand rail happened in just half a second. Wouldn’t children also benefit from having a hand rail in the right place?
KiddieRail is the new solution that will make it safer for children to walk down the stairs in households all around the world. Creator, Lesley Cartwright-Taylor, is excited to bring this adjustable handrail that is the perfect size for children to help them get down the stairs easier. However, the projects needs seed funding to make it possible. This is why Lesley has turned to the crowdfunding community for support. She has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise £99,000 by May 22nd, 2015.
According to the Department of Trade and Industry, in the United Kingdom alone approximately 40,000 children under five have accidents while going up and down the stairs. In the United States the statistics rise to an appalling 90,000. There is a stair-related injury that occurs among children under five every six minutes
This is why Lesley teamed with an experienced designer to create the KiddieRail and bring a solution to prevent these types of accidents among children.
There are handrails for adults, but what about children? They need assistance going up and down the stairs the most! The KiddieRail is small enough for little hands to grip properly. The height can be adjusted so that it is always in the right position, and it remains comfortable as the child grows. There is a cute small figure climbing up the rails with the child to offer emotional support as well.
It is easy to install with two attachments options: straps with removable adhesive tapes to hold it in position or with screws to the wall.
The KiddieRail is also the option to make the children-sized handrail horizontal for corridors, landings, or anywhere to support a child as they walk. So parents will have greater peace of mind knowing their children have a safety aid. Another added benefit is that the device will prevent dirty hand marks on the walls! There will be less of a clean-up or repainting.
To pre-order this great safety aid and make a contribution to the campaign, please visit Kickstarter or click here. Backers can choose from many attractive rewards as a “thank you” for the support.
This is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the goal then it could be years before this child safety solution can be released to the world. So know any amount given counts. Even if you don’t have little children around you can still back this great project and give the rails as gifts. Please share this with others on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. Spread the word about KiddieRail and how parents can get one for their own child!
