Oddbjørn (68) suffers from COPD and had great difficulty using his basement stairs before the TOPRO Step stair climbing aid was installed in his home


Since Oddbjørn installed the TOPRO Step stair climbing aid, he has finally been able to use the basement stairs independently again, several times a day. After many years as a welder, he was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). His symptoms range from difficulty concentrating to dizziness and shortness of breath. It was so bad that he could no longer go down to the basement - until he received the TOPRO Step stair climbing aid.

Oddbjørn is married and has four children with his wife. In 1976, he and his family moved to Frosta, a municipality north of Trondheim. From then on, he commuted to and from Trondheim for years to work as a welder.

"Commuting every day and working as a welder have finally taken their toll."

As a result of his work as a welder, he developed chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

This chronic lung disease leads to impaired airflow through the airways. In Oddbjørn's case, his symptoms included difficulty concentrating, dizziness and shortness of breath.

"I had enormous difficulties climbing stairs. In the end, I was no longer able to walk down the basement stairs at all. It just didn't work anymore."

"Since I've had the stair climbing aid, however, my life has changed completely for the better. I can go down to the cellar several times a day and no longer have any problems going up and down the stairs. Having the TOPRO Step stair climber helps me a lot, because now I don't have to be afraid to go, I just do it without thinking about it."

"I can really recommend the TOPRO Step stair climber to most people I meet who I know could use it."

What is COPD?

COPD is a chronic disease of the lungs caused by permanently narrowed airways. The abbreviation COPD stands for "Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease". Translated, this means "chronic obstructive pulmonary disease". COPD manifests itself through the so-called AHA symptoms. AHA stands for shortness of breath, coughing and sputum production.

COPD usually occurs in conjunction with chronic bronchitis, which is presumably also the cause of the disease. The persistent inflammatory reaction causes the bronchial tubes to constrict. This can even lead to damage to the alveoli, which can result in emphysema.

I have to say that the TOPRO Step stair climbing aid has saved me!
