DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPURPOSE: To enable individuals with upper extremity disabilities or tremors, arthritis, or grasping or fine motor disabilities to open cabinets and other doors. Included in a chapter entitled "Kitchen & Meal Time," this article describes how cabinet door knobs and drawer pulls can be replaced with D-shaped handles to facilitate grasping. A D-handle can also be attached to the door of a front-loading dishwasher for easier opening. Attaching a loop of rope or webbing to a D-handle enables the user to slide his/her arm through and use the arm rather than the hand to open doors and drawers. SKILLS NEEDED: Basic Carpentry.

REF: Cambridge, Massachusetts: Brookline Books: p 49. PAGES (including cover) 2. 1997.
