...there are more than 300,000 door-related injuries that require emergency room treatment every year.
Tampa, Fl (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
ArtStarKraft, Inc. has announced the launch of Doctor Doorstop, a unique new safety device designed to provide around the clock protection to help prevent the hundreds of thousands of injuries caused by doors that unintentionally slam closed on fingers, hands and pets every year. Whenever a door is opened, Doctor Doorstop’s automatic drop-down safety arm falls into place. This prevents the door from slamming shut and helps prevent accidents. It also can prevent lockouts, such as when young children lock themselves in a bathroom, and their parents out, or when pets accidently separate themselves from their food and water while their owners are out.
Dr. Eric Shapiro, orthopedic surgeon, said, “Parents Magazine recently reported that there are more than 300,000 door-related injuries that require emergency room treatment every year.” Inventor John Doyle conceived the idea after his own seven-year-old daughter received serious injuries when a door slammed on her tiny fingers. “My daughter was screaming, I was crying, and so were the ER nurses. Her injury required nine painful stitches and weeks of recovery,” said Doyle.
Requiring no installation, Doctor Doorstop can be easily adjusted to fit any standard exterior, interior or screen door. And unlike conventional doorstops that must be removed to close a door, the user can close the door from either side, whenever desired, allowing Doctor Doorstop to remain in place, and in safety mode, 24/7. As Doyle puts it “You just set it, and forget it.”
Doctor Doorstop offers convenience as well, such as holding doors open when bringing in armfuls of groceries. It’s even become popular with delivery persons who use Doctor Doorstop to hold open the doors of businesses while delivering multiple loads.
A major media campaign is set to make its debut via a two-minute commercial, created by renowned production company Marcus Productions of Hollywood, Florida. World class media company Koeppel Direct has scheduled the rollout on major cable networks Lifetime Movie Network, Animal Planet, Family Net, Gospel Music Channel, SOAP Net, Sprout and WETV Women’s Entertainment, among others. The spot, as well as more details on the product, can be currently viewed at the company’s website, http://www.doctordoorstop.com.
