Have you ever wanted to have a couple extra inches when moving something through a doorway, maybe a sofa, refrigerator, or washing machine? Expandable door hinges may have been the answer to saving you the skin on your knuckles. But as we age or sustain an injury, widening doorways a few inches may become a necessity. In this case, expandable door hinges offer an affordable solution.
The expandable door hinge is designed to give two inches of extra clearance to any doorway by providing you with the full width of the door frame to move through. By cleverly swinging out beyond the frame, individuals using a wheelchair, scooter, or walker can maneuver more easily and safely.
Once again this is an example of simple, low cost assistive technology that can make a huge difference.
