Essential Description (Caption):

This photograph displays drawer pulls that have been added to the dresser. The Bar Drawer Pulls were added because they are universally designed and easier to use than many other handle or pull designs. They also are relatively large and have an adequate amount of space between the pulls and the drawer, so that the user can easily get his/her hand in between them. The purpose of these drawer pulls are that they are useful for arthritic hands and can be accessed easily using an assistive device such as a grabber. The pulls reduce the forces necessary to open and close the drawers. The purpose of this photo is to represent examples of home modifications for the Senior Home Assessment and Repair Project.
