The challenge

Door extension handleThis wheelchair user, who has poor hand control, could not get near enough to the door to operate the handle.

An extended handle of light construction aluminium/plastic tubing with two handles enabled client to reach and turn handle on door. An inner tube of plumbing insulation allowed a gentle grip that was easy to fit and remove.

The client can open and close the door without assistance.
