Technology in The Suite: When we think of zippers, we don’t often think about technology, but a simple zipper pull is a low tech assistive device that can make life easy. Are you all set to go but just can’t get that annoying zipper up. If you have arthritis, your hands may hurt too much to grasp that small zipper. Well, a zipper pull can help. The zipper pull snaps onto the zipper tab, allowing for easier grasp and continued independence with zipping. They cost about $5 and can be purchased at Life Solutions Plus.com.
