Architectonical barriers at the EU represent a problem to people in general with mobility impairments in their everyday lives. This is a big problem, as currently there are 3.2M wheelchair users and 40M people in Europe that cannot walk without aid. To solve out this matter, platform lifts (able to carry a wheel chair) and stairlifts where created. However, this kind of machines present some problems at the time of its use, from which the most important one is their high consumption of energy, which makes them machines expensive to maintain. This consumption increases in an exponential way when the number of steps is high (>3 floors), being evident in the electricity bill. Other limitations are their big dimensions (not suitable for stairs < 1m), the disturbing noise of their motors, and the low speed (7’ to complete 4 floors!). In 2015, Extrema, a leader in accessibility systems, started developing Slim, a platform stairlift with the smallest size and the lowest energy consumption of the market (50% less), which will allow to do more steps with the same motor, in narrow places and in a more sustainable and secure (improved electronic system) and silent (<60Db) way. The main innovative components developed include: new breaking system, new material for key components, novel stabilizing system and improved electronic device. A first prototype has been developed and tested at lab level (TRL6), however there are several activities to be done to improve the performance of current prototype to reach the market. Slim emerges in response to the demands in terms of energy consumption for platform lifts, with the purpose of widespread accessibility and mobility to all European citizens, especially in urban areas. With Slim, Extrema will be able to compete in a wider market, enlarging the possibilities of market up-take. We estimate that with this project, Extrema will reach a margin of €5.4M by 2024, and will increase the number of employees by 15.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
