Striking one in every five adults and 300,000 children, arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability.  The Arthritis Foundation (www.arthritis.org) is committed to raising awareness and reducing the unacceptable impact of this serious and painful disease, which can severely damage joints and rob people of living life to its fullest.  The Foundation funds life-changing research that has restored mobility in patients for more than six decades; fights for health care policies that improve the lives of the millions who live with arthritis; and partners with families to provide empowering programs and information. “Understanding Arthritis” is an education program that covers the most common forms of arthritis, signs and symptoms, prevention and treatment strategies.

Our Wellness at Work training series introduces technology, equipment and best practices that allow employees to ensure maximum wellness while in an office setting. Many of our customers seeking ergonomic services are dealing with arthritis.
