My name is Daniel Roberts, I'm 15 years old and from Canada. For a while now, I've been trying to set-up my own business based around designing, manufacturing and selling physical products that are easier to use by those who have some form of arthritis/ rheumatic disease (in-fact, I've done my IB personal project around this concept). As a result, I thought it would be a great idea to get information and ask a few questions here. First and foremost; in what aspect/ symptom do you find to make it difficult to use/ operate certain products? To add, are there any features or designs that you have seen on a certain product (can be any at all!) that made it easier or harder to use (how so)? Finally, are there any products or types of products (example: broom, silverware, mugs, etc.) that you find difficult to use (would a certain form of arthritis make it harder to use?). Of course, you don't have to answer all the questions, I'm just looking for different perspectives and opinions and thought those questions would help guide me down a certain path (I'm open to any other comments and feedback). Just to close off, I've toyed around with the idea of producing a line of reusable water bottles that are easier for those with arthritis to hold and use. I've searched for a while now and haven't seen any on the market and thought the idea would bring something special and useful. I appreciate you taking the time to read this!
