Tenura Jar and Bottle Openers : Suitable for All

Opening Jars

As much as we don’t like to admit it, sometimes we do struggle with things, and you wouldn’t think that jars or bottles would be a problem, more occasionally, for me, beings as I’m male, tall and strong (ish), not at all. But to to be honest, i’m still a humble bloke and admit that, from time to time, I have struggled to open bottles and jars before now.

Now were not all the same, and you will find most able bodied people will have varying degrees of problems opening containers. But, imagine if you had a disability that made it impossible to open even the easiest of containers, imagine your struggle with that one odd jar or bottle every blue moon, and pretend you had to face this struggle every day…. You’re now thinking exactly what I’m thinking.

Conditions such as arthritis, especially in the hands or wrists, cause impairments to your strength of grip, and what some people do without even giving it a minutes thought, is a daunting task for others due to lack of grip strength, and more often than not met with excruciating pain.

My Mum struggles with opening containers all the time ( that isn’t my Mum in the pic by the way ), and I gave her some of our Tenura jar and bottle openers to help her out ( of course, it used to be me who opened everything when I lived there ), and she finds them a revelation. My Mum told me how much easier opening containers has become since using these, with them being really comfortable to use.

If only I could find something that would make it easy for her to use the computer, life would be a lot easier for me too :)
