Abstract

This project helps people who need an affordable, safe, and simple way to open a door. Millions of people today suffer from arthritis/dexterity issues and have trouble turning a standard doorknob. This project set out to design an attachment that could snap onto an existing doorknob. This assists individuals with arthritis/dexterity issues without having to replace existing door hardware. The device was built in a simplified manner for individuals who suffer from these issues, allowing it to be used without the assistance of any tool. Due to the audience for whom this device is intended, it was designed to be small and lightweight for ease of handling. The cost of manufacturing the device was required to be under $15 to ensure it was cheaper than just replacing the knob with a new handle. Results will be addressed in the presentation and report.
