Arthritis Foundation® Ease-of-Use Program Overview
Products submitted to the Arthritis Foundation’s Ease-of-Use Program are reviewed by a team of scientists at the Georgia Tech Research Institute in Atlanta whose sole purpose is to analyze the interface of man and machine. The Arthritis Foundation created the Ease-of-Use Commendation Program to encourage manufacturers to design user-friendly products and packaging that could be recommended to the millions of people living with arthritis. The rigorous approval process includes evaluation by a team of scientists who assess each product in the laboratory, as well as a panel of people with moderate to severe arthritis who put the products to practical use.
