Automated staircase for Rio 2016 Paralympics Opening Ceremony

Automated staircase for Rio 2016 Paralympics Opening Ceremony

The staircase is located in the rear central part of the stage and is designed to transform itself from a regular flight of stairs into 3 wheelchair ramps.

The staircase is kept in a closed position at the beginning of the show, and then its automated system moves the front section out, creating a ramp allowing
wheelchair access to the athlete who can therefore attain and ignite the Olympic Cauldron.
