AGING WITH GRACE IN YOUR OWN PLACE
Although 90% of us want to age in place, it turns out only 1% of existing housing stock is ready for the transition. Many of these remodels are significant, such as bed and full bath on the main floor or a no-step entries, but there are easy, simple changes that provide joy in our daily lives like switching out your old deco for finger friendly T-shape knobs.
WHY T-SHAPED KNOBS?
With 23% of Americans diagnosed with arthritis in their hands or fingers every year, a T-shaped knob makes sense no matter what your age. Small knobs can be hard for stiffer hands to grip, difficult to get leverage and takes more effort to turn.
A T-shaped knob is wide enough to get a good grip, therefore providing more leverage and requiring less effort to turn. T-shape knobs are easy to clean and complement many design styles. T-shaped knobs follow many of the principles of Universal Design such as simple and intuitive use, low physical effort, flexible and can be used by anyone. Meet some of our favorite T-shape knobs:
