Push Key
Push Key

Push Key is an innovative key design developed to help users to open doors easily, especially for those who are suffering from arthritis or muscular dystrophy (MD) and may have difficulties to twist their hand joints. The innovative key is composed of a rotatable key and a handle. There is a push button on the rear of the handle to allow users to push it and transmit the kinetic power to the key. When the patient slots the key in the lock and push the button, the manual power will transmit and rotate the key and then open the lock. Thanks Push Key, the hand impaired patients can open the door lock easily and effectively.
