There are many assistive accessories that can be used when a person experiences changes due to age or in this case, an injury. While AAA does not endorse products, the Seat Belt Grab-N-Pull may be a good option for her. They can be purchased for under $10 and they aide users that need a little extra reach when putting their seat belt on due to arthritis, shoulder pain, or limited mobility.
