The study of perception for opportunity to open the cap of drinking water bottle by the elderly. The objective of this research is to 1. study and analyse the design principles of the opportunity of access (Universal Design) to summarize the concept of design 2. design the cap of drinking water bottles for the elder and 3. evaluating the design in recognition, the appropriateness of functions by the elderly and production opportunity. By using group in-depth interview techniques with 5experts of marketing, packaging design and industrial design, asking about the possibility of production from the engineers of the Institute of plastics in the process of evaluating the prototypes. The number of 4 design choices, form A " Hangpong", form B "Pakpet", form C "Nok Chik" and from D "Khao Thui". The results of the research found that the C "Nok Chik" is a type that responds to the 4 concepts at a high level. Concept 1 "Quickly perception" by pulling the ring, twisting and saw a groove on the top. Concept 2, " Easy to twist", mean 4.0 (SD = 0.70). Concept 3 " Use another bottle to open", mean 4.2 (SD = 0.83). Concept 4 "Flexible way to open" mean 4.2 (SD = 0.83), with an average score in the overall of the performance model that is suitable for the elderly at a high level, mean 4.0 (SD = 0.70) and the production expert engineer evaluates to the lid pattern in type C with the possibility of level 3 and the degree of difficulty in production at a moderate level and suggesting to adjust the nib and the pull loop is bigger.
