Arthritis is a condition that affects the joints, causing them to be inflamed. It can make simple tasks painful. Over 10 million people in the UK have Arthritis, which means that many people are affected both directly and indirectly. Arthritis can be seen in all ages; however, it is more common for the condition to occur in people over 40.
A person with this condition may have impairment to their strength as they have restricted movement, which can make grasping objects difficult. It can be painful and movement is limited due to inflammation. Arthritis commonly affects a person's spine, hands, hips or knees. We see that these joints are the most affected as they are the most used during a person's life. Parts of the structure at these joints wear down through common use. It is the cartilage that has become thinner. The cartilages roll in the joint is to avoid the bones rubbing together, so it acts as a protection layer.

Bottle Opener and Jar Opener
Tenura Bottle openers and Jar openers make for a nifty gadget. They make opening and closing both jars and bottles easier. The smooth silicone makes for a comfortable surface to grasp and has excellent gripping properties, which means when you use the opener to twist off lids, the silicone effortlessly grips on to the lid, making it easier. The Tenura Bottle and Jar openers help reduce the amount of pressure put through the joints when opening a container.
Tenura Coasters can be used in unison with the Tenura Bottle and Jar openers, so you can open jars one-handed, which can be helpful if the Arthritis affects one hand more than the other. Tenura Anti-slip Coasters can be used for drinks and other objects such as ornaments to keep them held in place. The silicone has anti slip properties, which means that when an object is placed on the coaster, it will provide friction even if it is knocked, which helps avoid spills and avoid injury.
Frequently, Tenura Floor mats are placed where a person goes from standing to a sitting position (or visa versa). It helps the user get a secure foothold, which aids them in standing. Often the mats are helpful for those who use a Zimmer frame, wheelchair or require additional help during sitting/standing such as those with arthritis in their knees. Tenura Anti-slip Floor mats can provide an extra level of confidence as the person moves.
Tenura Anti-slip table mats help as objects such as a plate remain in place. It can be beneficial for people with Arthritis as the pressure can be focused on the cutlery as the dish doesn't move whilst eating. When using the table mat/coaster in conjunction with the bottle opener, a person can twist off a lid, one-handed.
