You get off work, spend an hour in the grocery store and get home with three or four big bags of groceries around your limbs. In this situation, there’s nothing more inconvenient than to have to twist open the door knob.
The fact is, door knobs are hard to use, whether you have a mobility limitation or not. Getting an adaptive aid to help you open your door simply makes sense.
First, let’s look at devices you can put around your door knob to make it much easier to use.
Instead of going through the trouble of replacing your entire door knob with a handicap door knob, simply put the Doorknob Extender on your existing door knob. The Doorknob Extender features a 5-inch lever shaped for maximum ease of use. It also features a slot in which to put a string. Using a string makes it possible for people with limited range of motion who cannot reach the knob to be able still to open the door and have their independence.
A more inconspicuous approach to modifying your door knob is to get the transparent Great Grips Two Lever Doorknob Grippers. This device gives you two different ways to easily turn the door knob. The grooves on the top and bottom make twisting a breeze. Alternatively, push one of the two levers with only one finger and open the door in milliseconds.
Similar to the Great Grips Two Lever Doorknob Grippers, the Door Knob Gripper also fits on your existing door knob to offer exponentially more grip. It can also fit on faucet knobs in the kitchen or bathroom.
Of course, to turn a door knob open in the first place, you have to unlock it. Keep track of your house key and prevent arthritis pain with our array of key grips.

Hold up to two keys on the Hole in One Key Holder. This key handle has a hollow center you can slip your hands through. It offers several gripping options.
