T-PULL Door Closer
T-Pull Door Closer is bound to make everyday life easier and safer for folks who use wheelchairs, walkers, and canes.
Simply closing a door is just that, simple, and doable, and no big deal. Well, I beg to differ when balance and mobility is a challenge. Being someone who knows firsthand the experience of living with a gradual mobility decline I can attest to the range of difficulties that is a part of that process.
Canes and Doors
When I walked with a cane it was usually ok to reach back after I moved through a door threshold to grip the doorknob and pull it close. However, as my balance lessened that was not always the case. Once a walker entered my life, this simple task got a bit harder.
Wheelchairs and Doors
Scooters and wheelchairs are another matter altogether. I can’t count the number of times I have wrenched my shoulder trying to pull a door closed. Seriously, it is a royal pain, which is why when I spotted the T-pull I knew it would help a lot of people.
T-Pull Door Closer
It’s simple, discreet, and get the job done.
Maintaining independence is important and looks very different for people with mobility challenges and I for one – love simple gadgets and very useful devices. The T-pull door closer is a real problem solver.
In this podcast episode, we talk with Tony Awad from Ottawa, to learn the story behind the T-pull Door Closer.
Tony Awad, who, after enduring an accident, opted to transition from a career in IT and entered into robotics engineering. Robotics engineering is a field of engineering which centers on building machines that replicate human actions. The T-Pull Door Closer is manufactured in Ottawa, Canada – even though it would cost less to outsource to China. (What’s wrong with this picture?)
Following his accident, Tony spent time attending physiotherapy and using mobility aids and this is when the task of closing a door became difficult. Like many things, necessity is the mother of invention and Tony put his awareness to work to solve this problem.
