Vacuum cleaner with lightweight nozzle and long cord - suitable for wheelchair users

Description
The user has a small vacuum cleaner. She receives help to attach it and the cord to the back and handle of her wheelchair. This arrangement allows her to move freely without the vacuum cleaner getting in the way. She has an extra long cord that allows her to reach half the house. She uses an extremely lightweight and convenient nozzle, Twinner, which works on both carpet and hard flooring. The low profile makes it possible to clean under low furniture and beds. Twinner fits any vacuum cleaner with hose size 32 or 35 mm.

Model nozzle: Twinner

Authors comments
This solution makes it easy for the user to clean her large house. With the long cord she only has to change electrical outlet once while cleaning. She is satisfied with the nozzle which works both on hard flooring and carpets without needing any adjustment.
