Arthritis Aids

Arthritis is a general term for any joint disorder that involves the inflammation of one or more joints. There are over 100 different forms of Arthritis, but the most common ones are Osteoarthritis, which is from wear and tear of the joints or injury, and Rheumatoid arthritis, which is an auto-immune condition where the body attacks the joints.

How can Dycem Non-Slip products help me if I have Arthritis?

Arthritis can be painful and can result in weakened grip, making it more difficult to hold on to objects without discomfort. Dycem's non-slip products work great as Arthritis aids and can make many tasks much easier!

Non-Slip Tape / Self Adhesive Material

This can be used for many items to create a comfortable built-up grip, examples include making cutlery easy to grip, wrapping around grab rails and wrapping around pens / pencils & cutlery.

Jar Openers and Bottle Openers

One of the most common difficulties that people suffering from Arthritis can face is opening jars and bottles. Our jar and bottle openers can make this process far easier by offering increased grip and stability. They can also be used for many other things around the house such as turning taps,opening doors and undoing the caps on medicine bottles.

“The opener is much easier to use than other products readily available on the market” said 74-year-old, Louise Thorne. “I twisted the top of with ease”.

"It is much more comfortable using the bottle opener than not using anything which causes me pain”. - Rheumatoid arthritis sufferer, Julie Talbot
