Hi Everyone – I am looking for an adaptive device to open a 3-ring binder – We still have some of our medical charts on paper and the charts are difficult to open when putting pages in and out – does anyone know of a device that can help with this task?Natalie Campaneria PT, CEES
Natalie, For the occasional difficult to open 3 ring binder I use a metal ruler or commercial paint stir stick. You just thread it through the rings and press on both ends simultaneously, with the binder open. It provides mechanical advantage and allows you to use your weight to add some force.
I have used home-made gadgets made from an 8 cm length of 1" x1" hardwood with a 2.5 cm slot cut into one end. If you need more leverage, use a longer length of wood. Linda McIlwain, City of Toronto [email protected]
