Josiah mainly has problems opening the doors at the Morrison Center, its doors have a specific handle he cannot get on his own. The handle is vertical and is about nine inches in length and four inches wide; it has ridges on the front for grip and a lip on the back. He wants a device that attaches to the handle that is connected to a rope where his service dog then pulls the door open. The item will have to be easily applicable and removable for simple use since Josiah has limited movement in his hands.
