InventHelp Invention Helps Wheelchair Users Close Doors (HTM-163)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp is submitting the DOOR BUDDY to applicable companies for their review and possible feedback.

An inventor from Hamilton, Texas, knows the difficulty wheelchair users face when they have to close doors behind them. "After I push my wheelchair through a doorway, I have great difficulty reaching back and closing the door," he said. "This inspired me to design a solution to this problem that everyone in wheelchairs have to deal with."

The DOOR BUDDY enables a wheelchair user to close doors behind him or her in an easier manner. This avoids strain and struggle, as well as promotes independence and safety. Easy to use and producible in design variations, the invention is ideal for anyone who uses a wheelchair.

The original design was submitted to the Houston office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
