IIDEX Collerette Ladder 4

Developer: RO
Canadian Innovation: Collerette Ladder for Firefighting

Challenge: Making it easier for individuals missing their thumb or fingers with weaker grip to extend and shorted the ladder.
Solution: Designing a glove that works as a prosthesis for the missing fingers to enable the ability to expand the collerette ladder freely, as well make it easier for them to hold grip while climbing up the it.


The ladder itself will remain the same. However the user with missing fingers, will have an assistive device. A glove will be designed for those with two missing fingers.
