Elevators for the elderly

Regarding marginalization, the expert emphasizes that “it is very normal that when we talk about ‘grandma’ or ‘grandpa’, discussions begin about how we take care of them, whether they go home, whether they go to the nursing home or to old people’s homes”.

And he also clarifies that it cannot be underestimated or neglected that, indeed, sometimes, the care required by the elderly is very great and that the caregivers, the families, are under a lot of pressure.

“But they are under pressure precisely because the States have not developed adequate policies to support the person and the caregiver. That’s where we have to say no. The State has the obligation to guarantee older adults all their rights and that includes giving them support so that they have activities during the day, so that they can make their decisions and so that they can continue to participate.”

Another challenge, says the expert, is “how do we create societies that are more open to the participation of older adults? I believe that there are countries that have cultures that welcome them better and we have to learn from those cultures”.

The dumbwaiter inspired Vermont American, Elisha G. Otis, to invent an elevator[5] with a toothed system, which cushioned the elevator’s fall in the event that the supporting cable was cut. It was the first demonstration of a safety system for passenger elevators.

Another type of elevator is known as paternoster; it consists of a series of open cabins, of limited capacity, which move slowly through two adjoining shafts. The cars go up one shaft and, when they reach the top, they change to the other shaft through which they go down in a continuous cycle, without stopping. Passengers board and alight on the move. It was very practical in places where there was a lot of movement of people between floors, although it had safety problems, so it was replaced by escalators, which were much safer.
