Tenura Kitchen Packs Now Available

Tenura Kitchen Pack - 1 x Non-Slip Coaster - 1 x Non-Slip Jar Opener and 1 x Non-Slip Bottle OpenerTenura's range of independent living aids has been helping to make daily tasks easier for a long period. We now offer a special combination of our daily living aids that will provide a great solution to grip problems, whether at home or work! Tenura kitchen packs are a combination of three of our silicone products, designed to provide a high-quality non-slip and grip-enhancing surface and a safe way to open bottles, jars, and containers. Kitchen packs include a silicone jar opener, bottle opener, and a 19cm circular anti-slip coaster. This combination of kitchen aids can make daily tasks easier and relieve strain on muscles and joints.

Work in the kitchen, whether professional or not, is hard work. From preparing the food to chopping, mixing, and mashing, it can be a real exercise to create a decent meal for yourself or others. For those who have Arthritis, this can be even more of a task. Arthritis can make small tasks such as this, very painful and strenuous on the muscles and joints in your hand and arms, meaning a simple task can take a great deal of effort to accomplish. Simple tasks like opening and closing bottles and containers can be a real struggle for those with physical impairments as they cannot form a firm enough grip to open containers with twist tops easily. Tenura has handpicked some nifty kitchen aids to help combat the difficulties people with Arthritis deal with daily.

Tenura jar openers create a strong grip around jar lids and tops, making them easier to twist and open. Jar openers are ideal for people living with Arthritis as it will take away the need for a large amount of force to grip the lid or top and instead allow you to twist it open smoothly. Tenura jar openers have a strong, non-toxic silicone construction and can be washed with ease (dishwasher safe), allowing them to be used in high hygiene areas.

Tenura bottle openers offer the same grip-enhancing properties but in a smaller format to help open smaller twist tops, amongst other things. Bottle openers are designed to fit around bottles, medicine containers, taps, and many other items, making them easier and more comfortable to open! Like Tenura jar openers, bottle openers are also non-toxic and completely phthalate-free.

Tenura Round Yellow Anti-Slip Coaster

The last product in this combination of daily living aids is the Tenura silicone circular anti-slip coaster. Tenura non-slip coasters offer a non-slip surface that can be used as a mat or a coaster thanks to its size (19cm diameter) and shape. Like many other Tenura anti-slip mats and coasters, Tenura silicone will adhere to a clean, dry surface without additional adhesive, instantly forming a non-slip grip that will help prevent unwanted movement from objects that rest on the coaster. Providing an excellent surface for placing a chopping board, mixing bowl, or due to its high-temperature resistance (up to 250°C), hot pans and plates also, preventing unwanted movement that could lead to spills, stains, and potential injuries.

Tenura kitchen packs create the perfect range of independent living aids to help with every aspect of cooking, preparing food and other daily tasks, making them easier and more comfortable. All items in the kitchen pack can also be bought separately.

Tenura Kitchen packs have been created to offer a complete package for use in the kitchen, or around the home or workplace, and can be purchased on our website. Make sure to contact us with any questions regarding these products and the rest of the Tenura range.

Award Presented for Rheumatoid Arthritis Research

At the Gairdner Foundation International Award ceremony in Canada this year, two of Britain’s leading biomedical researchers, where presented with The Canada Gairdner Award for their research into which molecules cause inflammation and destruction of joints in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Professor Sir Ravinder Maini and Professor Sir Marc Feldmann have been working in the biomedical field for decades, and the award presented was for the research they both performed in the 1980s. These Gentlemen discovered anti-TNF (Tumour necrosis factor) treatment for RA. Anti TNF therapy is now used to block anti bodies, allowing a swift improvement for suffers of rheumatoid arthritis. TNF is a protein messenger molecule, which drives the inflammation in the joints, so by creating the drug, they could prevent inflammation and further damage by effectively blocking TNF.

This research was crucial to enabling major development in effective treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, and since then has had an incredible impact on the world, allowing the correct treatment to be given out to RA suffers  worldwide, giving millions of people a better quality of life. Identifying which molecules cause inflammation and destruction of joints meant that these Gentlemen provided the stepping-stones for organisations to create treatments to try to break down these molecules building in joints, allowing the pain and inflammation to subside for a period. By regularly taking the medication, arthritis suffers no longer have to deal with the pain and difficulty that everyday tasks created for them previously.

Tenura shares this vision of making life easier for those that suffer with impairments to strength of grip, which adds unnecessary difficulties to everyday life. Our silicone jar and bottle openers are just two of our products dedicated to those who suffer from pains in joints, making certain tasks easier to do, and relieving the pain that normally comes with them.

We congratulate Professors Ravinder Maini and Marc Feldmann for their efforts to help people suffering from RA, and outstanding research into the causes of arthritis.
