Arthiritis Product Design Project...

I am an industrial design student at the university of alberta. I'm doing research on household products that could use an innovative design especially for people suffering from arthirits.

The product that I am assigned with is a wine opener; so my question is, what types of problems occur when trying to open a bottle of wine with the conventional opener?

Could anyone suggest some particular parts during the opening process that aggrivates pain the most (angle while opening, twisting, gripping, pulling, etc)? And where does the pain begin?

Your imput is greatly apreciated and very useful for my problem statement. Thank you very much for your time.
