Adaptive Designs/Assistive Equipment

This page will address options to protect doors, opening doors and first floor laundry.

The following are just a few of our ideas:

Plexiglass screwed to the lower portion of doors is an inexpensive way to create your own kick plate.

An industrial strength magnet makes opening the dryer door easy from a seated position.
