Chris Colwell, a quadriplegic with limited hand function, shares a video demonstrating how he independently gathers laundry using a laundry cart and specialized reacher.

The video begins with Chris setting up the laundry cart where he wants it. Then at 0:50, watch Chris use his reacher to get a towel down from the clothesline.

At 2:00 in the video, check out how Chris lays out a towel on the laundry cart.

Chris not only uses his reacher to pull towels off the clothesline but bed sheets as well. He proves that with the aid of an assistive device and a little patience, one can accomplish a lot!
