Use this one device to make getting in and out of the car easy again

Summer is right around the corner and that means more people driving their cars. For some, driving is difficult because getting in and out of the car may cause pain. The Handybar may be the assistive technology device to help ease that pain. The Handybar fits into the car door latch and just like that you have an extra handle to help you out of the car. The Handybar fits into the front or rear car door. Other security features include a seatbelt cutter and window breaker.
