Today more and more devices are being created to aid those who are handicapped and make their daily routines easier and their lives more independent. The focus of this design involves the opening of a medicine bottle for one-hand use and is targeted primarily to an audience that includes those who are disabled and have only the use of a single functional hand. Design requirements of the device include being easy and safe to use, lightweight and having minimal assembly and maintenance requirements. In addition to opening the bottle cap, the cap must also be able to be put back on. The design must be flexible enough to incorporate different bottle styles, including over the counter as well as prescription applications.
