312. Bright Idea: Baser Door Handles May 15, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Product.
Finally, a better door handle. I complained about door knobs in a previous post (HERE). This Baser door handle has a Push-to-Enter and Pull-to-Exit design, requiring minimal effort and dexterity. When your hands are full, use your elbow, foot, or butt to push open a door. Use a pinky to pull open a door.
Possible improvement: have separate-looking designs for Push versus Pull, so if I come up to an unfamiliar door, I immediately and intuitively know whether I need to push or pull to open the door.
