This idea came from a published author and user of MMC devices, Brenda. She has created a list of potential ideas for devices. This post describes one of the device ideas:
This device would be alike the devices in our low AT kit with the goal of aiding in aligning the two parts of an existing zipper for individuals with limited hand mobility. So initiating the insertion of one side of the zipper into the part with the tab. A diagram for clarity is below. This would ideally be used in clothing with zippers so the properties of fabric must be considered.
There is commercial zipper hooks but they do not aid in getting the two pieces of the zipper together initially. A device like this may help spark some ideas in development though.
We are looking for a designer/maker to develop this device. Brenda is open for contact for any feedback or details but currently is not on the forum, so feel free to reach out in the comments to be put in contact.
Edit: Clarification that ideally this would be for use with a garment that has an existing zipper.
