Arthritis awareness charity Arthritis Care published
findings from a recent study which suggests over 70% of arthritis sufferers
are enduring constant pain.
Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects millions
of people across the UK. The effect of osteoarthritis varies greatly from
person to person but for most it’s a constant source of pain and stiffness.
It can make the most trivial daily tasks a painstaking mission.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis
in the UK, commonly causing stiffness and pain in the joints. When a suffered
develops osteoarthritis the cartilage covering the ends of bones within
the joint wears thin and the bone below often thickens.
The surface within the joints become damaged and result
in restricted natural movement and often a grating sensation. In severe
cases, joints can have very little remaining cartilage and result in severe
discomfort for sufferers.
Osteoarthritis is most commonly found in women, and
in people over 50 years old. In face, 75% of people over 50 years old have
osteoarthritis. 95% of all hip replacements carried out in the UK are as
a result of a hip replacement.
We offer stairlifts specially designed to help overcome
problems associated with osteoarthritis. The Brooks/Acorn straight stairlift
incorporates the latest technology including the 'soft start soft finish'
which allows a slow gradual acceleration to prevent any uncomfortable sudden
jerks or jolts. People with back problems such as spondylitis of the spine
have found this facility helps them enormously. And the Brooks Lincoln curved
80 stairlift has a unique rocker switch or joystick option available which
enable users with severe arthritis to be able to operate the stairlift using
only part of the hand.

but Rental Stairlifts advised him on a model that would be ideal for his
The Brooks Lincoln curved 80 stairlift has a unique
rocker switch or joystick option available which enable users with severe
arthritis to be able to operate the stairlift using only part of the hand
. "Stairlift Rental were fantastic in helping us find a stairlift my husband
could easily and painlessly operate," said Mrs. Thompson. The curved Brooks/Acorn
80 is a great choice for people with arthritis in their hands as the operator/user
does not need to push button controls which require a steadier hand than
a joy stick or rocker switch.
