Made a few for mum..wife...friends mum.. And my mum lives in sheltered accommodation and I have passed a couple to the warden to give to residents who need assistance. Thank you so much for your time and effort. So much appreciated

I am an Occupational Therapist. This design is especially great for the small tops on water bottles. I recently gave one to someone I work with who has RA in her hands. She was thrilled! If anyone want to take the design of the handle, widen it a bit, it would make a great exerciser for a weak hand because of the "springiness" in the handle. I like that the sides are curved, much more comfortable for placement in the hand than 90 degree flat design. A bit of a more curve where the thumb sits would be even better. Simple but very functional.

works really well -- used pla

My Opener (made it with ABS) broke at the first test :( right at the joint. Any suggestions?

Perhaps increasing the infill to 90% or have 2 perimeter walls would help

Very useful and comfortable design. I did have to replace one with 80% infill that broke. I reinforced the broken area a bit in tinkercad and printed at 100%. Ought to last until the end of time now.

I've designed a couple different bottle opens for my wife and her friend that have limited use of one arm.
This much better then the ones I came up with. I'm going to remix with a magnet to stick on the fridge.

Merci pour ce que vous réalisez, souffrant de Ténosynovite et de rhizarthrose cet appareil me change la vie !
