Coffee time challenge solution: "Getting a handle on doors"

Written by: Tom Shelley | Published:

Abbas Taheri Pour has invented a solution to last month’s challenge – on how to open doors when your hands are full – which he calls an ‘Ergonomic Swing Door’

. It was on show at this year’s London South Bank University Design Degree Show.
His innovation is simply to introduce a pedal near the base of the door, which engages with the door handle mechanism through two linkages. Pressing down the pedal pushes up a connecting rod attached to a linkage engaging with the square shaft that turns the door latch. The conventional handle remains where it is.
He says the whole prototype cost him only £220 to make and his target sale price is £160. More information from Email l.adesignlimited@yahoo.co.uk
