  • How EZ-Step was created

    The EZ-Step is the creation of Ron Wallum, who came up with the idea in 1989, to help his active, 83-year old mother with the ten-step stairway leading to her second-floor apartment. Ron's mother was suffering from arthritis at the time and she found that the EZ-Step made it possible for her to go to and from her apartment unassisted. She subsequently underwent two hip replacement operations over the course of a year and a half.   Ron adapted an EZ-Step to a cane so his mother could take it with her wherever she went.   In fact, within just two weeks of her return home from the hospital after the first hip replacement, with the help of her 'new' quad step cane, she was able to leave her apartment and go to the Senior Center for dinner. The Portable Quad Step cane evolved from that idea.
     

    University Study compares EZ-Step to normal steps

    The University of North Dakota
    , Physical Therapy Department, conducted a comparative study of muscle activity and the range of motion (ROM) required to ascend and descend a normal stairway and the same stairway equipped with EZ-Step.  The results showed a marked reduction in the amount of muscle activity required to both ascend and descend as well as marked reduction in the ROM required to use the EZ-Step equipped stairway.
