Footage shows Alexander Yudin, 69, being lifted off the ground and carried up to his apartment balcony in southern Russia by a device he designed.
The video shows him arriving outside his apartment block in Timashevsk, in Krasnador region and waiting for the harness to lower down from his balcony.
Alexander Yudin built the 'elevator' on the side of his apartment block in Timashevsk, southern Russia
The video shows Mr Yudin being lifted up to his apartment on the third floor
Mr Yudin took months to build the contraption, which he came up with after becoming less and less mobile.
Mr Yudin said he made the elevator so that he could get out of his apartment without relying on someone else to help him
Mr Yudin's elevator is powered by solar panels so a power outage in the area won't leave him stranded inside or outside his home
